In fairness to my ISP, I should mention that my service is now back to its normal adequate 2g self. I don't know why, but it might have something to do with my acquisition of a Hauppauge Colossus video encoder card which allows me to record my Ubuntu-PC's screen with excellent resolution with my Windows PC. I've also added other things which allow me to compress the video to an amazing degree without visibly degrading its resolution, using the Handbrake video transcoder.
However, I have largely lost interest in global affairs, since I'm made my point and all I've been doing lately is repeating myself. Besides, if the world needs me to save it, it's in a lot of trouble.
