This is a Nederlog of Friday, May 26, 2017.
Summary: This is a crisis
I have been writing about the crisis since September 1, 2008 (in Dutch) and about the enormous dangers of surveillance (by secret services and by many rich commercial entities) since June 10, 2013, and I probably will continue with it, but on the moment
I have several problems with my computer, my modem, the company that is
supposed to take care that my site is visible, and my health.
It may be that I'll be off for a few weeks, that is, I will publish nothing or little for a few weeks. I don't know yet, but will keep you informed in Nederlog.
what I will do for the moment - since I am still looking at 35 sites
every morning - it to list the items I selected, but without any of my
comments. Today I selected four items, and they are above, and link to the originals.
There are just two more items here and now:
and the usual sum-up of the services that have been denied to me now for 1 1/2 years:

The Danish site was again on
time today. The Dutch site was once again not on time as it has not
been on time most of the time during - "just" - the last 1 1/2 years:

most and without any
problem, as indeed is the work of ISPs. Now this takes a full week, on average.
they totally stopped doing this to limit the
readings of my site. I think (but I don't know
anything whatsoever about "xs4all") they now update once

10,000 times worse
than they were between 1996 and 2015.

succession. And they happen on purpose, because it is extremely simple to do this properly,
and it was done properly from
1996 till late in 2015. (If you want these
horrors, then sign in with
"xs4all.nl"; if not, avoid them like the plague.)
And what changed is that you have to refresh (and refresh and refresh
and refresh) to get the latest, which is again NOT as it was
before, from 1996 till 2015, and which for me this only
serves to make it extremely difficult for naive users to get
the latest from my site - that for them may seem to have stuck
somewhere in 2016 or 2015.

payment if you are a
week behind. Xs4all.nl has been destroying
my site now for over
a year. I completely distrust them, but I also do not
know whether they are doing it or some secret service is.)
