Home Net is slowing down

Home Net service seems to be slowing down a lot lately. One of the reasons I moved away from PNCC dial service is to avoid the stress build-up of trying to open my Gmail account in a standard view. Dial up is a slow service that you resort to opening your inbox by loading basic HTML view. It was not worth it.

It has been quite common in the past two weeks that Home Net has failed to deliver the top speed you’ve been promised. The speed as I am writing this post is as slow as dial up. You can never get any reprieve. No words from PNCC yet as to the problem.

Comment Policy

A Le Ko Kau Forum welcomes all comments and appreciates you taking the time to contribute. This blog encourage rational discussion and comments. However, be aware that in order for you to join in the discussion, your first comment must be pre-approved by the administrator before your subsequent comments are automatically published.

Anyone is free to disagree with the author of a post, or with other commenters, or with me as long as it is done politely. Comments that take a belligerent approach on an issue are at risk of being deleted. If you agree or disagree, put it down. Add to the discussion if possible, or make your opinion known without resorting to name-calling of the author or others.

 Try to stay on topic as much as possible. Relevant links in comments are okay, irrelevant links are not. A comment with a link that’s not really relevant to the post will be removed. And I will spare no time to delete comments containing personal attacks, hate speech, excessive profanity, or other behavior that would be inappropriate in a civil conversation.  

Anonymous messages are not allowed. I’m sure if you want to flame the positions of the author or the other people who take the time to comment on the material presented, have the decency, courage to put your name/blog/address to your post. Otherwise, don’t be surprised if your message don’t get published. If an approved commenter continues to violate the comment rules I will remove them of their pre-approved status. And to be clear, put down your real name and email address for confirmation if necessary. However, nothing is fool proof as few are bound to slip through from time to time. Because it is next to impossible to monitor every comment that comes in all hours of the day, for better or worse, this will be the A Le Ko Kau Forum comment policy. 

Now go ahead and post that comment of yours!

Alii and Welcome

Alii and welcome to the launching of this long anticipated weblog A Le Ko Kau Forum. The idea of this weblog was borne out of the need to diversify the source of information and to add new voices to the public debate hopefully elevating the quality of discourse to the point where insights are refreshing and the sharing of ideas is done in an open and civil manner. All geared toward the betterment of our country. 

It is my belief that Palau can find solutions to its myriad of problems, you name it, the many social ills, corruption, environment, education, and so forth if the young Republic cultivates a healthy environment where free exchange of ideas is both respected and welcome. To create that setting, Palau like many societies must break out of the classic model where knowledge flow is stopped and administered by many news sources; newspapers, TV, radio, etc. And opinions are shaped by those who get to hold the “megaphone” where ideas that keep with current trends or political agendas received top billing, while unpopular – though necessary for innovation and social transformation – ideas are ignored. This quandary is made worse by the complete lack of a far-reaching platform that allows for multiple perspectives and facilitates passionate debates exploring virtually every facet of an idea or concept. Through such a platform of open conversation ideas are formed, nurtured and refined. It is for that reason that I hope this Forum becomes such a platform to break the stranglehold of opinions of those with the “megaphone” by increasing the number of voices to the dialogue.  

This blog is not going to be limited to what my interest lies in (which is pretty much everything) but I hope with contributions from guest authors and many in the community will make forays into arts, culture, politics, environment, law, technology, process, and business strategy, etc. Nonetheless, whatever I post here, or from a contributor to this Forum is being done in a spirit of good cheer and contribution. Let’s see if we can make things better, not worse. We’ll see how it goes.
