Orchestration

February 28, 2007 @ 08:04

Last night I went to buy gas for my wife's car and it wasn't easy. I had to go to four stations before I could find high grade gas and it left me in a state of pissedoffedness.

I don't buy it. If the big oil companies didn't have a history of price fixing and gouging I might be able to find a little sympathy in a refinery fire in Nanticoke, but I'm sorry, I smell a rat.

I keep searching for the answer but I haven't heard it clearly defined yet. If the oil refinery fire was an Imperial Oil problem, why couldn't I get gas at Sunoco and Petro-Canada last night?

I wonder, I just wonder if this is another case of collusion. Here's my conspiracy theory.

Imperial Oil has a problem at a refinery that will force them to raise their prices, but the other oil companies won't be affected. Imperial goes to the other guys and says "if we have to raise our prices and you don't, then you're going to get all the business and we'll get none."

The boys all get together and decide that goes counter to their long and illustrious history of working together through price fixing and controlled shortages, so they agree that everyone will have a shortage and everyone will raise their prices.

Crazy? It might be but I think these bastards are capable of anything.

And here's something that is really crazy. Yesterday when pressed by the media about the gas shortage in the province, Ontario Energy Minister Dwight Duncan said "so what." In the middle of an energy shortage in his province, whether real or orchestrated, the Energy minister said "so what."

The Tory Tory years are coming.

Freddie you are so right. Those friggin bastards at the oil companies are colluding and our politicians don't have the balls to do anything about it. So, if the waterline to your home in Brampton breaks and you have no water, does that mean people in Hamilton are going to have no water too? I don't think so - I think each city has independent systems. Hey, that's just like the oil companies. Friggin' bastards!

Years ago my father-in-law had a gas station at Cannon and London streets in Hamilton. When they bought a truck load of gas they could not change the price of the gas until they ordered their next truckload. I find this up and down price crap really annoying

This may only mark the first update to the mysterious BMW coupe, which is seemingly (at least for now) based on a current-gen 6-Series, but the lack of quality images, video or information is already proving to be quite frustrating.Although we wish we could bring you more concrete information on this mystery car, we have little more than another video showing the aforementioned coupe driving straight at the camera. While we are certain it was by no mistake, the audio quality - or lack there of - manages to mask the sound of the vehicle sufficiently enough that we are still uncertain if there is an electric motor or a traditional gas engine powering the car.

Like Suzuki, Nissan too is caught in the crosshairs of a major recall stemming from little fault of their own, aside from their choosing of Garmin to supply their portable navigation devices for several models (optional).Suzuki was first to announce the recall of some 20,000 vehicles thanks to the use of a Garmin portable navigation device that is known to potentially suffer from overheating, which can lead to a fire. Now its Nissan's turn, with seven models, all 2008 through 2010 model years, which used one of the recalled Garmin units.

Lindsay Lohan “If perhaps I were the alcoholic every body says I am, then setting a [scram[]|] bracelet on could have ended me up in clean out, inside the emergency room, because I would have had to come down from all the stuff that folks say I am taking along with my father claims I’m taking – so that says something, because I seemed to be fine.”

Hey I only wanted to let you know, I certainly like the written material on your web site. But I am using Chromium on a unit running version 9.04 of Ubuntu and the look and feel are not very enjoyable. Not a powerful deal, I can still essentially look over the articles and look for info, but just wanted to inform you about that. The navigation bar is sort of tough to use while using config I am operating. Keep up the superb job!

Whenever you purchase your first set of women’s Ugg footwear, remember that you will find unique directions you need to follow to maintain your shoes neat and being confident. Ugg’s are naturally water repellent however for maximum repellence, it’s best that you employ suede water repellent in it. Selected types of Ugg’s have a removable inside sole although not all.

Brilliant! I am not sure if you heard but Milwaukee Bucks shooting guard Michael Redd has had an awful yr and a half. In January 2009, he tore his ACL and MCL in his left knee and was finished for the period. He came back to start the following season but then tore the ACL and MCL all over again almost precisely a yr later.

If you're still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you'll know which is right for you.

I'll gear this review to 2 types of people blog: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

You need to fit a low light camera fairly close to the office. Then a cable to your location, or into the office where it can be recorded by a security video recorder, a computer with a cctv card or a dedicated cctv camera server. Unless you are experienced in this you can waste a LOT of money for no results.
