Hurricane Sandy 2012

As Hurricane Sandy approaches, please make sure you have prepared. Visit your local city or county web site for preparedness information. Follow them on Twitter or Facebook. Visit the Ready Virginia site. Make a list of important phone numbers.

Severe weather like Hurricane Sandy can cause power outages, flooding, and other damage which can cause interruptions to your Internet connection. Before that happens, make sure you have alternate methods of getting up to date information and communicating with friends and family. Make sure you have a battery powered radio with fresh batteries. Make sure you have your cell phones charged and have your home and car charger for them.

If you have a land-line telephone at your location, make sure you have a corded (hard-wired) telephone that you can connect. Cordless telephones do not usually work during power outages.

Service and status information from Widomaker can be found on our website (http://home.widomaker.com/), our blog site (http://weblog.widomaker.com/), our Facebook page, our Twitter page, and by calling our office (757-253-7621).

Dominion VA Power info can be found on their Storm Center web page. They are also on Twitter and Facebook.

Once the storm has passed, and if you have power, please report any service problems by contacting our office by telephone or e-mail.

Help Stop The Internet Censorship Bill

no_censorship_buttonCongress is about to pass Internet censorship, even though the vast majority of Americans are opposed. We need to kill the bill to protect our rights to free speech, privacy, and prosperity.

The Senate is scheduled to vote on the internet censorship bill on Tuesday, January 24th 2012, and unless we can find 41 senators to block the vote, it is going to pass…

Can you meet with your senators during the January recess and ask them to vote it down? Visit http://americancensorship.org/ before January 24th to help.

Here is a helpful guide to In-Person Meetings with Your Congressional Representatives provided by the EFF.
