GalliaWatch blog update

We Covenant Zone bloggers have long followed the excellent reporting going on at Tiberge's GalliaWatch blog, concerning news on and about France, news that is rarely to be found within other North American news sites.

Therefore it is with great distress that we read this message from Tiberge this afternoon, concerning some unexpected problems she is undergoing with her blogging:

A minor catastrophe has happened - My ISP provider suddenly and without warning
cancelled my DSL account. I am off-line and cannot receive e-mail at my regular e-mail box. I cannot post, as far as I know, though I will try after I send this message. It's been hysteria - on the phone with this office and that. They insist a request was sent in to terminate service. I of course insisted it wasn't true. I have no idea how long this will last - maybe several days.

... Would you be so kind as to post a very short announcement at CZ announcing my problem, and that I will be back on line ASAP.

This is the peril of living in the modern age: "the computer is never wrong..."

I think I can safely speak for all three of us here at Covenant Zone, when I say that we sincerely hope this bureaucratic snafu is quickly set to rights..!

Hi Tiberge. I'm certainly waiting anxiously to find out how thing come out. Best luck.

Charles Henry,
Thanks for the explanations on Galliawatch ; the acronyms (?) were a bit confusing ; that is why I said I did not understand the technical aspect ; I am terribly sorry to have understood too well the "big brother" aspect that may be lurking behind this state of things !
Let's cross fingers ; I'll probably send my Christmas greetings to Tiberge through CZ if you don't mind....

@ charles

Thanks so much for helping me out. I couldn't get to the library yesterday, but this morning I signed up for dial-up service while waiting for the high-speed connection to be restored. I will post as soon as I get some sleep. I haven't slept for three days.

The whole reactivation process will go on into next week - maybe Thursday. And I'll never know who tried to cancel my account. Above all I'll never know if it was an error, an act of revenge or an isolated "crime".

Again I'm grateful to you and all loyal CZ and GW readers.

We all look forward to seeing you back, Tiberge, and wish you the speediest recovery.
