    Brr.. it's darn freezing here today.. last night, though
    initial reports said our overnight low would drop to 3F, we
    actually held our own at 5F..  wow, a heatwave!
    
    Thankfully though no snow of consequence hit our village..
    but a touch over from us by about an hour, Ithaca NY is
    expected today to get lake-effect snow.. We're hoping to
    move Ithaca sometime or 'nother.. but hearing reports like
    that do not make me want to hurry the move there, that's
    for sure.
    
    Enjoy the weather if you can.. and here's hoping you can
    stay warm if you're in a chilly belt...  It doesn't seem
    fair somehow that our neighbors in Zone 3 are experiencing
    their summer right now :(

    TDS Telecom Wants My Money...
    By Janis Kracht, 1:261/38, janis@filegate.net
    
    I've been discussing internet charges with folks in the
    FN_SYOP echo - some find it hard to understand how a rural
    area's internet fees can be as high as they are.. It doesn't
    surprise me however.
    
    In a village who's total population is 901 people according
    to the census of 2000 it is very understandable to me: 369
    households, and 250 families residing in our village.  Oh
    wait, my daughter and her family left Windsor for Ithaca NY
    a few years ago, so make that 249 families and 5 less
    people as well..  When you're taking about a small country
    village like Windsor, every person counts :)
    
    Our village is so pathetically small that we don't even
    have a police force..really..  :) We welcome though when
    the town's sheriff rides though the village..  at least
    that keeps the hooligans that leak out of the local bar
    kind of quiet.  Believe me, they can get mighty rowdy, and
    it doesn't seem to matter what day of the week it is.
    
    Back to TDS though.. From what I understand, this company
    was recently bought out by firm in England..  and I
    remember thinking, well, there goes the local friendly
    service..  though I secretly hoped this affiliation might
    bring better services to TDS..  not to be though, sadly
    enough.
    
    In Windsor, if you want a DSL line that can run servers,
    you have to have a commercial account...  so, While we were
    able to upgrade our DSL line to a 15M from a 5M line
    (geez!!) and our billing was reduced from $400.00 a month
    to $176.71 plus LD fees from AT&T, I guess somewhere
    somehow TDS figured it needed to make a few more bucks from
    it's customers (they are the only phone company in town
    afterall).
    
    Two months ago TDS instituted a new policy without any
    notice in writing to it's customers..  Normally, when the
    phone bill comes with it's handy preaddressed envelope (you
    pay postage, of course), I call the company on the phone
    and make our payment using our debit card.
    
    The new policy though that TDS started two months ago now
    charges anyone who uses their
    "automated-pay-your-bill-by-telephone" service a fee of
    $2.90.  Doesn't matter if you are a residential or
    commercial customer either.  And you don't hear anything
    about this fee until you call the customer service line to
    pay your bill.
    
    No, it's not a huge sum.  But why any fee is necessary or
    legal is beyond me.  You don't get this charge if you go to
    their web site and make a payment with your debit or credit
    card, and of course you don't have to pay this extra $2.90
    cents if you use a check and the postal service to make
    your payment.. I won't use their web site for payments
    since the last time I did that, TDS overcharged us by a
    whole month's billing.. and at the time, that stinking
    $400.00 charge was NOTHING to sneeze at.
    
    So first I filed a complaint over this excessive charge
    with the FCC.. and then I filed another complaint with the
    Federal Trade Commission's consumer fraud protection
    agency.. The FTC acknowleged my complaint and now I'm
    waiting to hear the results of there investigation.
    
    Wouldn't it be nice if the little guy won for once? :)
    
    Time will tell...

    Italian Marinated Vegetables
    Microwave recipe
    
    Typically I use any vegetables I have on hand for this
    recipe...  the crunchier the vegetable, the better suited
    it will be.
    
    Put into a microwave-safe 2-quart jar or container with lid:
    2 stalks celery cut into 2 inch lengths
    2 medium onions, quartered
    2 carrots, sliced in half or thirds if very thick  
     and cut to 2 inch lengths
    Handful cauliflower florets
    4-5 mushrooms, cut in half
    1 green pepper, sliced
    
    
    Add to the container 
    1 cup olive oil
    1/3 cup red wine vinegar
    3 Tablespoons sugar
    1/4 cup water
    1/2 teaspoon oregano
    1/2  teaspoon basil
    1 crushed clove garlic
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    
    Microwave covered on high for about 3-5 minutes.  The time will depend on
    the power of your microwave.  You want the vegetables to be somewhat firm. 
    Serve at room temperature in bowls with some of the dressing.

    INFO:
    
    Fidogazette is published by Janis Kracht, Editor, with the
    help of Richard Webb 1:116/901 (Old School ToolBox).  If
    you have an ideKa for a column or a series of articles,
    please contact me :)

    Tick or a tick compatible program.
    
    Where to Send Your Articles
    
    Unlike most editors, I surely do not  mind running my mouth
    when there is a sparcity of articles for the 'zine.  I'd
    MUCH rather you sent in material...  lacking that, I will
    fill these issues with my meanderings and thoughts and
    hopefully we will grow into something of consequence here
    :)
    
    Write an article!
    
    If you WOULD like to submit an article, feel free to drop
    your article off at:
    
    Email attach to address: janis @ filegate.net
     
    Fidonet attach: Janis Kracht at 1:261/38
     Modem: 607-655-5652 
     Binkp: 1:261/100 filegate.net port 24555 
     telnet mailer: filegate.net
    
    If you are using routed fidonet mail, don't send articles as routed 
    attaches.  They will fail somewhere along the path before getting here.
    Send them instead direct to filegate.net.
       
    Give it a title, sign your name and network address if you have
    one and send it along!
    
    Don't worry about the format, I can take anything you send me
    and mutilate it further as you can see above.  Linux is nice
    that way (g).  Spell checking your own work will help though
    (something I'm typically guilty of (g)).
     
    To send reviews or recipes to the Food section, email or
    netmail Janis as above.
    
    Email address for submissions to Dr.Debug:
      To send a question to Dr. Debug, email a question to:
          drdebug @  filegate.net 
      or post in the fidogazette echo!  :)
    
    To send a listing to the FidoGazette bbslist, email your 
    listing to:
      bbslist @ filegate.net 
    or post it in the fidogazette echo!
