Fred Patterson Update, My HP TouchPad and Load Times

radioAs we discussed during this weekend's Open Mike, Freddie P is out as Program Director for the Corus cluster of stations in Peterborough. Here's an update from the man himself.

I will also think about the next step, and besides talking to a couple of people who have reached out already, I will huddle with a former humble partner and map strategy on an exciting project.

If you're keeping score at home, both Humble and Fred are currently unemployed, causing many to speculate as to what's next for the duo I awoke to throughout the 90s. I promise to post everything fit for public consumption right here.

In other news, I dropped by HP Canada headquarters this morning to pick up my new TouchPad. I'm going to try and break this sucker, and I'll share my experience here. So far, it looks pretty slick.

just got a touchpad from hp to break - this will be fun

And finally, in this 3-for-1 update, many of you have experienced longer-than-usual load times for this site. I'm having a little trouble duplicating the delay, but I've heard from enough of you that I'm confident there's an issue. If you're feeling the delay, comments with lots of detail will help me resolve the issue.

That's all for now. Happy Monday, y'all.

Yeah I definitely felt a delay and also felt Firefox get hung for a while. Not sure if others are facing this problem.
Shame about Freddie. I'm sure that he will bounce back. I so enjoy his blog.
Also - cool HP tab dude. Can't wait to see ur review of it.

Try takeing out the You Tube embedding of Carl Sagan's Cosmos. Just leave the link.

Well, lots of web sites are slow loading these days, but I thought it was just me. I have a temporary internet service hooked up now. My Primus phone is working, and the permanent internet should be working some time on Wednesday. I think this switch over is well worth it. I had enough of Bell. Well, probably would help if you took out the Youtube stuff as well. That would speed it up. Go Habs.

Yes, please offer a review on the HP. That could very well be my next major purchase.

Site seems a bit more speedy today. Even my phone can access the comments section again.

Any thoughts on Humble and Fred at Vinyl 95.3?

It could work.

As an aside to that thought, The female morning host (already forgot her name) seems to be gone, and the website doesn't list anyone for the morning slot.

It is a shame, the music could be a bit better (a little more spirit), but those two had very good chemistry together.

So, Vinyl 95.3, get more spirit, get more humble 'n fred.

Site seems to be loading much faster today.

Bell sucks, gave up on them over 9 years ago.

Well, for some reason the site loaded faster. Yes, Bell sucks. I get a lot more phone services now which Bell would charge an arm and a leg for. It's well worth getting rid of Bell. Who needs them. go Habs.
