I have four.  Anybody want one?

As an aside, to those on my flist that use hotmail is it working for you?  I swear I'm moving to gmail.

I use it & mine is fine

Well you're the only one so far that has said so. I don't know if it's only in North America but something is screwy.

I'm not getting any notifications (I know you responded because I've been refreshing my lj inbox), there are other emails that friends have sworn they've sent that are lost in the ether somewhere and I literally have to open and close seven to ten browsers just to get the friggin' thing to load - usually after hanging for a minute I get the white screen of death that proclaims that the webpage I'm trying to access is not available.

I went to the Windows Live help forum to find thread after thread of people complaining of the same problem and the "help" we have been receiving is useless. First it was make sure your browser is optimized then it was well it must be your service provider, can you try from a different computer with a different service provider? Then it was well what browser are you using and can you tell us what service providers you've tried? Oh and give us permission to access your hotmail account so that we can give it a try.

Yeah at that point it I was thinking it was time to switch to my gmail account and make it my main account.

And this has been going on since a week yesterday, but I'm not frustrated or bitter, not at all. *shifty eyes* What? I'm not. *g*

*sigh* Okay I'm done now.

It can't be just in North America because that's where I am too. Do you use Internet Explorer or Firefox ? Some say it works best on Firefox

*sigh* Sorry for some reason I thought you were in the UK. *shakes head at self* I don't even know why...

Actually James has firefox and I have Internet explorer and neither are working, nor is whatever browser Roger uses for it's cell phones. *shrugs* I rarely use my cell to access the internet so I have no idea but it isn't working either.

If I was having problems accessing any other website then I'd know it was on my end but everything, msn homepage, lj, gamil, yahoo, the random searches I've done just to check all work.

You know what? I don't care anymore. I've switched my notifications to gmail and when I have to send stuff to you for beta I'll still message you first and other than the @gmail.com the beginning of my email is the same as my hotmail email.

Speaking of, I have really got to finish my sweet charity fic...what procrastinate me??? Nooooo. *g* It's all Jared's fault, he's being pissy and Chris Kane in Leverage, good god that man's arms!...yup, definitely.

Maybe it's the Hotmail servers in your area & I'm pretty sure that Rogers uses Outlook & Internet Explorer

I look forward to reading more of your stories so you can send them to me anytime.

Yes you are procrastinating & don't make me have to get the stick out LOL ! How is Jared being pissy? As for Leverage, I didn't get the show here but I have pre ordered the DVD set of Season 1

Put the stick down, I swear I'm writing! 10k + so far on my Sweet Charity and that's only to the end of part 1. So see I am writing.

Jared is being pissy because he has to learn something that he doesn't want to hear about/believe and he's refusing to play nice. I can't decide if it's a bad thing that I'm talking about my character like he's a real person (Haha I know, I know but you also know what I mean) or not...of course if it simply proves that I am crazy, well I've never denied it. :)

Actually I don't get the TNT channel either, even with satellite, in fact I don't think you can get it in Canada period. I've downloaded the episodes and once I can get the DVD then I'll buy it instead, especially since it doesn't seem to matter in what format the downloads are, a part or two or three always flicker and are digitalized. So far I haven't found it online in Canada, I'm hoping if I wait until it's actually released that I'll be able to order locally instead of having to pay insane shipping charges from the States.

Okay, I believe you LOL!

Yes I do know & if you're crazy than so am I LOL!

TNT not available in Canada because they have no canadian content in their programming.

The DVD will be released July 14 & you can preorder it on Amazon.ca for $31.49

*grin* There's nothing wrong with being crazy, people tend to give you a wide breath.

Actually even with basic cable I was able to get NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, ummm, there were a couple others, TBS, it's been a while but there were a couple others.

With satellite I get those (x 3 - for some reason several channels I get in more than 1 time zone) plus CW and a couple others. So it's not the lack of Canadian content, apparently dubbing Canadian commericals over the American ones is good enough *shrugs* but it is funny to watch a commercial for Tim Hortons on a station from New York or better yet for Hockey Night In Canada playing on the CW and reminding viewers to tune in to CBC. I love the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission and their rules for Canadian Content, they're always good for a giggle.

You can still get those with basic cable & they only dub the commercials when they airing the show in both countries.CW here does not show different commercials (although there are some Tim Hortons in the States, just not as many) & cable company says it's lack of Canadian content/programming that is the issue
