Day 32

thread
15 and half year old Tiny and... 15 and half year old Tiny and 15 year old Pompom
Best Buddies
It rained overnight. I took Pompom and Tiny and Nano to Medina Sate Park (Off Leash Park). It took about 30 minutes to make one round. We used to be able to do multiple rounds few years ago but I guess those days were over.

I am thankful just for the fact that I still walk with Tiny and Pompom. I am sure Nano have more years. I am in the office and soon I will be cooking dinner for them.

Pompom will have another chemotherapy on Monday. We are fighting this cancer together.

Net Neutrality

thread
Net Neutrality
When you think about Net Neutrality … You really have to think from the consumer point of view and the content provider point of view. When you think Net Neutrality, you think the service provider can charge more for the net usage. Well, that is already happening. People who want 40Mbps service will pay less than people want 200Mbps. That is same for the content providers like hosting companies.

To make are websites and emails are operate smoothly, we buy huge amount of bandwidth from the service providers. So, companies like NETFLIX, Google, YouTube, Amazon, Microsoft, eBay, PayPal, Yahoo, Apple … they are all paying huge amount of money make sure they contes are being sent to the consumers without delay.

So, what is Net Neutrality?

It is not Internet service providers serving contents providers. They are being paid. The only companies who are not happy about Net Neutrality are the companies providing contents to the consumers for small amount of monthly money. They want to get paid from the contents providers. To do that those service providers want to be able to slow down the content delivery from the companies they can get paid like NETFLIX, Google, YouTube, Amazon, Microsoft, eBay, PayPal, Yahoo, Apple and so on.

This is especially problematic when the consumer do not have multiple service providers to access Internet. If you have multiple service providers, you can simply switch out of the provider who is slowing down the content delivery.

Net Neutrality will not be an issue when all service providers own and operate enough bandwidth but that is not the case. It is like an Interstate Highway system, they are always congested. The only way you can increase the capacity is to build and add more lanes or highways. To build more lanes and highways, you need funding. It is same for Internet.

When you think of Net Neutrality, whether service providers want to charge content providers or consumers, it will at the end all come down to consumers directly or indirectly. But you cannot not force free market by Net Neutrality either. That will stop or slow down the expansion and innovations and investments.

My take on Net Neutrality … I think at the end less government regulations are always better than more regulations. Government should be there to police the system not to manage the system. At the end, free market always wins.

Day 31

thread
Thank you!!! Thank you!!!
Yes, Pompom has survived one month since the start of chemotherapy. I have heard of horror stories about chemotherapy so I did not want Pompom to go through it.

Since the chemotherapy started, enlarged lymph nodes have shrunk down to the normal size. He is not breathing heavily any more. He is not coughing as much either. Sure there were few days chemotherapy caused nausea and loss of appetites. But compared to the alternative, chemotherapy is working wonderfully.

He will have 3 more weekly chemotherapy and then 8 more biweekly chemotherapy. In total 6 month treatment. Thank you all for your support. I really do not know what is going to happen ... knowing nobody lives forever. I am glad that I am able to give Pompom more time with us.

FCC Votes to Repeal Net Neutrality Regulations

thread
Will this happen? I don't know. Will this happen?
I don't know.
This sounds really bad .. But I don't understand why FCC wants to do this. I need to really see how it affect me and my company. The truth will be, I don't think it will change much. I don't think COMCAST and other service providers are going to able to ask consumers to pay more. They may ask companies like NETFLIX to pay more and NETFLIX may charge consumer more.

We really need to see how this plays out.

But I do not like the idea that service providers have the right to know what I am using Internet for.

Day 30
Pompom is doing as well as expected. I cannot use the word FINE because I don't really know what is going on. But he is sleeping well and eating okay. Tiny and Nano are staying with us since last night.

There was a burglar alarm little after 6:00am ... I came to the office to find out the carpet installers have set off the alarm. Since I was already at the office, I took Mayumi to the airport. It took only 20 minutes to get the airport but it took over an hour coming back. I cannot imagine there are people doing this everyday.

Mayumi's flight took unexpected stop at Victoria on the way from Seattle to Vancouver. She just reported that they are taking off from Victoria ... She will make the connecting flight to Tokyo.

FCC wants to prevent service providers like COMCAST from selectively slow down or block service for more revenue. I think it is a good thing.

Mayumi is traveling to Japan starting tomorrow. So Tiny and Nano will stay with us starting tonight. Mayumi told me Tiny have a diarrhea ... I happen to have diarrhea medication for Pompom which he never needed.

I will take care of two 15 year old dogs. They are sleeping comfortably next to the space heater.
