    Who is in control- God or the ISP?

    To some people this may sound basphemous or weird. But, if you have a new computer[October 2009] and a wireless router a stone's throw away, why should it take fifteen minutes to get online at 4:30- 5:30 a.m when most people are sleeping? Worst still is when you try to upload a hub or photos, the connection times out- especially if the uploading /question is beneficial to you or others.I did not start to use the notebook computer until after Christmas when the desktops messed up. Who gets the blame- the computer,ISP or God?

    I think the very common scape goat is God as almost all of us curse our luck at the very first instance then comes the computer and the ISP. Alas,we don't give up cursing or blaming God even when our gizmos are faulty but that's the way it is at present.

    Ditto.  I am always using God as the scapegoat.  And it is not even his fault.  It always seems when something does not go my way, I always use the GD swearword, something I am not proud of.

    you have to bind the demons of streaming!!! and command that they come not back into your downloads.
    LOL
    joking of course but its funny.
    God really can't be blamed for anything unless you are born-again and dloading porn then your comp might fry but then you'd have to wonder if god didnt give permission for satan to fry your comp, of course if you are using your computer for gods glory chances are all the christians are online before the unsaved and of course all the christians are winning lotteries too.

    LoL.. you have to rationalize whos to blame with sound rationalization. I think blaming god is wrong in whatever scenario and satan well thats a joke doctrine so forget that so reasonably, the streaming demons!!!! they were cast out of heaven which is a really good isp.
