  1. Something for Rogers Users

    For Rogers users who would like to avoid the effect of Rogers incompetence (Rogers system is time based, if the page you are trying to access responds slowly, Rogers will tell you that it’s down, even if it isn’t) there are a couple of solutions.

    If you are running Firefox, install Ad Block or Ad Block Plus, and add:

    [ link ]

    to your block list.

    You can also add this to your hosts file, if you feel able to. As long as you block the site, everything works the way it should, the way that the internet was designed.
