Coming Up On The Shaw Media Network

shaw mediaShaw Media has sent out three press releases outlining the network’s plans for the 2012-2013 television season, and before I delve into them, let me say that I am extremely disappointed for two reasons. One is that Endgame Season Two is nowhere to be seen, and Shaw has still not added Investigation Discovery to its channel lineup. It’s good to see that, like Rogers’ announcement yesterday, there are many shows I won’t be watching, Canadian originals or not. I don’t want cheap drivel time wasters whose content makes me shudder at the state of humanity. I want intelligent, engaging and entertaining programming. Like Endgame. And Alcatraz. Oh yes, and Ringer – which while shot in the USA, had a Vancouver connection in post-production. Read the rest of this entry »

GWEN Toga Party for Multiple Sclerosis

This article was written by Ananamoose and originally published on GuildMag – it has been reposted here with Rhonda’s permission. 

GW-EN MS Toga PartyIf you are a part of the Guild Wars 1 community (and even if you are not) you have probably heard about GWEN. No, not the Mesmer in Eye of the North. I’m talking about the Gaming World Entertainment Network!

GWEN is an online radio station that is also affiliated with Gamers Giving Back. Both organizations are run by the same person, M A L I B U Barbie, or Rhonda as she is known here on Earth. She has been running these organizations since January 2010. Her mission is to prove the stereotype of gamers wrong. We aren’t just sitting at home staring at a screen, we have big hearts and we are active in giving back to the world. Read the rest of this entry »

The Web Goes Dark For Some On March 8th

On March 8th, the Internet will go dark for hundreds, possibly even thousands of users.  And it will be the FBI’s fault.

Not really though, but that grabbed your attention, didn’t it?  Here’s the deal.  Back in November, the FBI took down a malware website that was infecting computers around the World and changing the infected user’s DNS settings to point to hacker-controlled networks.  If you were one of the unlucky, you would suddenly find your computer no longer gave you proper search results, and you would be seeing ads pop up on sites that shouldn’t have any (making money for the hackers in the process), and, most serious, you would find that your antivirus would no longer update.
