Thank YOU UNH Confucius Center.

Thank YOU Dr. Yige Wang.

Another HUGE success
like last year’s GALA.

Much more to come.

This was the 2nd Dragon Dance
during the 6:30 to 8:00 pm session.
They wanted a ‘tall’ man at the front.
Deanna is one removed from me.


Click to access YouTube video. Devanee shot it using my (hers to soon be) Canon T3i. Deanna is behind me — one removed. Read the YouTube description. That head was heavy. I was surprised. Maybe 20 pounds. Maybe more.

Alton Central (ACS) School Board: Letter To Profile Bank Re. Lander/Leggett YET Looks Like A Ruse …

William (‘Bill’) Lander

The Inglorious Tenure At Alton Central School (ACS):
The Redux — Partial Gallery.

A. Hiring of suspended facilitator.               B. Near illiterate blog posts.
C. Using another lawyer.                             D. Getting facts wrong, again.
E. Can’t chew gum and run meeting.          F. Baseless allegations.
G. Board overturns decisions.

This is but a PARTIAL gallery of shame. I will add to it as I have time.

As somebody who has been self-employed in N.H. since 1992, and has owned a N.H. LLC (of very good standing), WOWNH LLC, for a very long time, I am totally flummoxed as to why Lander needed a letter from the ACS School Board to get a loan from Profile Bank.

At the Feb. 17, 2015 School Board meeting, I think, it was implied that he, i.e., Billy, needed the letter so that he could form his LLC. Well, that does NOT make sense. It only costs peanuts, in NH, to register an LLC — I think less than $150. If Billy needed a loan from Profile Bank to cover $150 I dread to think of him in charge of a budget greater than $0.00.

Does NOT make sense …


It was a clever, devious RUSE by Billy to get the hapless, clueless Board to PRE-COMMIT to the contract!

Get that?

That is exactly what the Board did as far as I can see from THE Letter.

They, BY writing that letter, pre-committed to the contract — which they claim they have yet to sign.

But that no longer matters. Billy has the Profile letter. That says Board committed.

So I am of the opinion that the letter was a RUSE.

Why would Billy need a loan? He will get $125,000 from ACS — at some unspecified date.

He wants MORE.


I am going to go after Profile Bank.

I will be contacting their CEO this week and I will also start reporting them to every Securities monitoring agency that I can locate.

IF Profile Bank, which I do not consider to be a top-tier, Industrial-Strength bank, gave a loan to Billy based on this UNDATED letter — they have problems. Down the road we, as taxpayers, will be holding the can for yet another bad loan.

So IF Profile Bank made a loan based on this letter I am going after them. I am fed up of subsidizing and taking a financial hit for bad loans made by banks.

Get that?

Be careful. Be very careful. We, as residents and taxpayers, are getting shafted.

Bloody MetroCast!

MetroCast LIES!

MetroCast sucks — but doesn’t even do that very well.

Internet service went down again this morning, around 12:12 am — and was down till 2 am.

That was why I could not do any posts.

Others in New Hampshire experienced the same problem.

So repetition of the outage we had just 48 hours earlier.

Now I have hardly any bandwidth. Check VERY TOP speed reading. 4.17 Mbps! Jesus wept and so did I.

Called them UP. They lied. They lied through their rotted teeth.

I only went BACK to MetroCast with great trepidation. I have been through all of this with them before. But the 15Mbps (x2) I was getting from TDS was just not enough.

They lied to me that this ‘hardly any bandwidth’ was MY problem and that there were NO problems in my area.


MetroCast is doing major work at their Rochester, N.H. data center.

Others in N.H., all around the Lakes, are not only have OUTAGES but suffering reduced bandwidth.

If you are on MetroCast check your bandwidth using GSTNetworks.net or Speedtest.net.

You might not realize that your bandwidth is down. I can tell a 1Mbps drop in bandwidth. It is a talent.

Gather that the MetroCast woes will continue till about Tuesday of next week. Heads up.

MetroCast sucks badly and MetroCast lies.

Right this very second, I am on Chat, with TDS (and as some will attest, when I want I can chat very persuasively). I am getting one of my 15Mbps lines back from TDS at a reduced price! I am then going to use a ‘bandwidth aggregator’ and have both TDS and MetroCast providing me with both download/upload bandwidth — bonded. That way when MetroCast goes down I will still have 15Mbps bandwidth through TDS. I do know how to design networks — redundant ones at that.

MetroCast sucks BADLY. MetroCast lies.

Beware of MetroCast.

I am ditching MetroCast as soon as TDS (or someone else) can offer me MORE Bandwidth.

P.S., MetroCast is sending a technician on Saturday. Wow. Bastards. It is free. So I will make him jump through hoops outside just for fun. Real nice to the last guy. Made sure that he didn’t even have to step outside in the cold. This guy on Saturday. I will have him climbing poles up and down the road. I know the routine.
