Starchoice Satellite: Crap! Avoid it! Lousy Service from Star Choice

I've had Star Choice Satellite TV for the last year and have never had so much down time on TV service with any provider. Snow, bad weather, mysterious circumstances, it doesn't take much for the satellite signal to disappear for hours on end.

Take my advice, stay away from Star Choice (aka Shaw Cable TV) and stick with your regular cable provider - they can't possibly be as bad as Shaw (StarChoice). Last time I called Star Choice when the service went down, I was told the wait time for Tech Support was in excess of 53 minutes. Never did get through to them, but I cancelled the Star Choice service the next day!

What is my IP Address, you ask? Current IP number info...

Sometimes you need to know the IP address of your computer for troubleshooting or online game purposes.

Get the current IP address of your computer at these websites:

Techsupportfree.com or here .

Your IP address identifies your computer or device on a TCP/IP network. Networks using TCP/IP route messages based on the IP address of the destination. The format of an IP address is a 32-bit numeric address, shown as 4 numbers separated by periods. Each number can be zero to 255. For example, 1.132.12.110 could be an IP address. Within isolated networks, you can assign IP addresses at random as long as each one is unique. However, connecting a private network to the Internet requires using registered IP addresses (called Internet addresses) to avoid duplication.

Find American brands and products on eBay Canada

A lot of items that Canadians may be looking to purchase simply are not available at retailers in Canada. Many brands of clothing, shoes, sporting goods etc. do not have Canadian distributors, and most American online retailers won't ship to Canada. For example, clothing brands like Etnies, Hurley, Quiksilver, Roxy, DC Shoes, Juicy Couture, Lucky Brand Jeans are hard to find online in Canada

One way to find these products in Canada is to browse

shop online at eBay.ca
eBay.ca

and search their listings. There's no cost to register and the selection of products available far exceeds any online Canadian retailer's stock. You can browse eBay Canada here.

Stanley Park Seawall Bike Trails

Went for a 20km walk through Downtown Vancouver and Stanley Park yesterday (Canada Day). Beautiful weather and lots of crowds for various Canada Day celebrations.

If you haven't walked or biked along the Stanley Park Seawall, you're missing one of the great free treats of Vancouver. There's actually 2 paved trails side by side - one for walkers and one for bikes.

Because of the huge windstorms earlier this year, thousands of old trees were uprooted and blown over. They've been cleared off the seawall and trails, but the seawall path in the Siwash Rock to Prospect Point area is still closed due to landslides and unstable ground conditions.

As you can see in this picture, there are signs and fences blocking off the closed areas, but some people still venture in to check it out themselves.
stanley park seawall

Near Second Beach (between English Bay and Third Beach) there was a guy stacking rocks to make the most incredible object balancing act I've seen. Have a look at these artsy creations on the beach:

If you live in Canada near a border crossing and wish to take advantage of the free shipping offer, have your order shipped to a mailbox service in your nearest US border town (example: Blaine, WA where for a small fee you can have a US mailing address).
If you hate border lineups, get a Nexus Pass so you can speed through those border lineups, even on long weekends when everyone else has to wait 2 or 3 hours to get through. It costs $80 for a 5 year pass, but it's well worth it even if you only make a few trips a year.

If you'd rather not even try to cross the border, you can order online from a number of US merchants that will ship to Canada for a small extra charge here .

Folding bikes are cool: Dahon, Schwinn, Jeep, PT Cruiser

I've had a folding bike for a couple of years now, and it's a great way to get around in summer. If you get a 20" aluminum frame model, they only weigh around 25 lbs., so they're easy to carry around, throw in the trunk of your car, or carry on public transit or in your boat! Check out this cool video of a Dahon folding bike:



Best place to buy a folding bike online is Amazon.com , or in Canada: folding bikes on eBay Canada or Canadian Tire .

Earth Week - Get out of your car!

If drivers would use alternative transportation even 1 or 2 days a week, air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions could be significantly reduced. Try riding your bike to work, or take transit, or carpool, or walk!

If the benefit to the environment isn't enough incentive for you, think about these stats from the Canadian Auto Assn. on the true cost of operating a vehicle. The numbers are based on Dec. 2004 data (when gas was 86.9 cents/litre) so the real costs are even higher:

Based on driving a Chevy Cavalier Z-24 for 12,000 km in 1 year, total annual cost is over $8500 (including insurance, depreciation, gas, maintenance, interest). That works out to over 70 cents per kilometre.

A Dodge Caravan driven the same amount would cost over $9300/yr or 78 cents/km. More info...
