Galganov.com had Moved our Server from a Provider that was an American Web Hosting Firm when we first Rented their Service, but after-which, the Provider was Sold to a European Company, which Gave Horrendous Customer Service.
Besides . . . I Am A Fanatic For Buying North American – Whenever I Can.
So we Bit the Bullet, and Moved our BLOG to a Subsidiary of Go-Daddy – Top Secure Net, which Generally Provides Fabulous Service, even though I’m Not the Person Dealing One-On-One with Top Secure-Net, since I’m simply too much of an Internet Neanderthal.
But The IT Genius (Mario) . . . who Built Galganov.com for me more than 25-Years Ago, who has been Managing Galganov.com from the Get-Go – Does all the IT Management.
But Now . . . Because Of This Virus Disaster – Even the Big & Powerful Providers are having their Share of Service Problems, in as much as Top Secure-Net has some kind of Open Link, which Prohibits my Word-Perfect Created Editorial from being Joined to the Service that Converts the New Editorial Notification to the Image you See (Read) On The Galganov.com Web Site.
As Hard as Top Secure-Net is trying to Alleviate the Problem, they’re Stymied. So What we are in the Process of Doing . . . Is The Following:
1 – Try to Rectify the Issue with Top Secure-Net (Not Looking Good).
2 – Use a Complicated Back-Door Created by Mario to Reach the Program that Converts the Word Perfect Editorial into Code that Allows it to be Read (Good Possibility).
3 – Use Another Hosting Service We can Trust to Do the Job & Move all of Galganov.com’s Site to the New Provider (Which is what Might be the Final Result).
If You’re Reading This . . . It’s Because We Moved The Blog.
IN THE MEANTIME:
I Noticed Last Week, at one Press Event, when President Trump Entered the Room for a Press Conference, None of the Media Stood.
When Obama Always Entered A Room – Everyone in the Room Always Stood, and at the Start of Every Obama Press Briefing, Obama’s First Words Were Always – “Please Be Seated”.
Do These Media Ingrates Not Realize . . . that what they’re Doing by Not Standing for the President of the United States Of America, is DISRESPECTING Not just President Trump, But Rather The Entire 200-Plus Year Institution Of The American Presidency?
At A Time Such As This, which is Beyond Anyone’s Memory or Comprehension, the Thing we as a Civilized Society Must Cling to – should be the Respect we Must all Show for the Traditions of Statehood . . . Which Have Made All Of Us Who We Are.
I Really Don’t Like Prime Minister Trudeau . . . but whether I like him or Not, he is the Elected Prime Minister of my Country (Canada). And as Such – The Office Of The Prime Minister Must Be Respected . . . Or We Can Kiss Our Nation Goodbye.
AS FOR THE MEDIA . . .
The Canadian Media Is Apoplectic . . . Because Advertisers Have Stopped Advertising. Which Means there is no Revenue for the Media to Carry-On. The American Media I’m Certain Is In The Same Boat. But this was Happening anyway with or without the China Virus.
BUT THEY THINK THEY’RE TOO GOOD TO STAND FOR THE PRESIDENT:
In Canada, the Media is so Full of itself, that it (The Media) wants Special Taxpayer Funds Set-Aside for them to Remain Viable, Claiming the Media is an Essential Service. But, in all Reality, Unless you want to be Inundated with Mostly LEFTIST Propaganda, which the Government wants you to Know, The Media Has Stopped Being Essential Long Ago.
There Is A New Media . . . Galganov.com, which Answers to No Advertisers or Special Interest & Does Not Hold the Government-Up as some Untouchable Icon . . . Is Part Of The New Media, which now Reaches far more Eyes & Ears than the Old Media, which Stopped Being the Guardian at the Gate and the Voice of the People, Once the Media Decided to Sell-Out for LEFTIST Politics, Power and Wealth..
A Long-Time Reader (Texan), Listener & Supporter of Galganov.com Emailed me on Sunday, after Having a Serious Cry over the Virus and her Fear for her Family (Children & Grandchildren).
And Before Responding To Her . . . I thought About President Trump’s Rose Garden Press Briefing, which he Gave on Sunday (March 29, 2020) – When Dr Fauci Said . . .
If we Follow all the Presidential Guidelines, Detailing Social Distancing, Staying Away from Crowds & Groups of More than a Few . . . and Hand Washing – Etc, Perhaps As Many As One Hundred Thousand (100,000) American People Will Die From The China Virus.
CORRECT ME IF I’M MISTAKEN – ‘CAUSE I KNOW YOU WILL:
Math Has Never Been My Strong-Suit . . . But as Far as I know, if you Want to arrive at a Simple Percentage (Or Fraction), you Divide the Smaller Number by the Bigger Number.
For Example . . . There are Approximately 330-Million People in the United States of America. So – If We Divide 100,000 Possible Deaths by 330-Million People . . . I Believe the Number is .0003 (003%) of the American Population Could or Would Die Under the Best-Case Circumstances, if All Americans Did what they are Supposed to Do.
But Dr Fauci Went Further-On To Say . . . If No One Followed The Presidential Coronavirus Protocols, the Death Rate Would or Could be Approximately 2.2-Million People, which is a Very Big Number.
But Even At That . . . 2.2-Million Deaths Divided By 330-Million Americans Translates To .007 (.07%).
By No Means . . . Are these Numbers Small if it Affects you, your Household or Friends. But these Numbers also Don’t Spell the End of the World, because they are Perhaps Insignificant to the Much Bigger Picture.
The Other Issue Is . . . Who are the Most Vulnerable Amongst the 100,000 Or 2.2-Million People who Might or will Probably Die from the Virus? We know that the Fatal Victims of the Virus are Predominantly Elderly Men & Women Over the Age of 70. People with a Suppressed Immune System. And People like me with Type II Diabetes.
I’ve Got Two Strikes Against Me – Age 70 & Type II Diabetes.
Knowing How Few People out of the General Population are Going to Die as a Percentage of the Total, Kind of Makes me Feel somewhat Less Vulnerable, As Long As Anne & I Do All That We Can To Follow The Protocols.
The News Media – Which Is The New Entertainment & Opinion Media, Are Making This Horrible Circumstance Even More Horrible Than It Is Or Has To Be. Which Is Not Right. Why Don’t They Publish The Preceding Numbers, Unless I’m So Off Base That I’m Living In A Fool’s Paradise.
WE ALL NEED HOPE . . . NOT OVERBLOWN SENSATIONALISM:
No Matter How We Look At This . . . This Is Indeed Bad – But We Have To Look At Everything In Perspective. And Then Maybe It’s Less Bad Than We think.
And If You Find Fault With My Math – I’m Sure You’ll Let Me Know. In The Meantime . . . Let Me Enjoy The Bliss.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
