Oil, with it’s major fall, is $55.64 US per barrel at the time of this post. It seems Oil bottomed out and came up a tad today. Some predictions are that it could still go down so far as $40 US per barrel and hover at a low cost for as much as 6 months …. possibly up to 2 years.
This has caused unrest and concerns in the Stock Markets and with companies (plus their spinoffs) where they have lost considerable profit due to the high expense of producing a barrel of Oil. It has caused a wild ride in the Markets lately where investors get into this ‘panic and fear’ thing. Cool headed investors wait for the stock price to come down in these energy companies they are interested in and buy at what they estimate is ‘buying low’ … waiting for the rebound when oil will certainly rise in value again.
Consumers, such as myself, are enjoying the low cost of gas and lube for their ‘rides’ wondering how long the savings will last.
Airlines in Canada are in the news lately with the increasingly high volume of passengers as we head for the Christmas holidays. With the low price of oil, Airlines are enjoying the profits but created a negative buzz where they also have this additional ‘fuel surcharge’ added to ticket fares from when Oil was up there around $100+ per barrel. Folks feel the fuel surcharge should be dropped but of course that’s not going to happen any time soon.
Meanwhile, one of my ‘fav’ pastimes is watching the televised NHL games. Both Montreal and Toronto seen their winning streaks come to an end last night. Being a Habs fan, my team was bumped from their top spot in the NHL rankings as teams jostle for top positioning and try to maintain that spot through to Playoff time.
This Christmas tree is not mine but gives me ideas for next year… or is it a tad “too much’?
Digadz has posted their holiday downtime and maintenance schedule: (Edited for current stats)
I’m feeling that I must say thanks to everyone here and thanks for your patience! We are working really hard each and every day with almost no time to sleep.
Digadz has over 81.000 members and we are growing rapidly and we are having around 10.000 members online and I know there are issues with the server loading slow , but we are working all we can to solve this problem. For now server is running much faster if we turn off the banners, I know that is not a solution , that is why I want to give you this news right now.
Most important is that server will be upgraded around Christmas time 23rd-25th December,2014.
Please understand that for server upgrade we will need up to 3 days, (23rd,24th,25th December) to be completed. We already did this once and members who were with us from the beginning know what am I talking about. When we start with server upgrades , DNS (Domain Name System) will need up to 3 days to propagate in all countries. This time we want to avoid all problems while DNS propagates to all countries and we will be closed from 23rd-25th December to finish that process. We decided to upgrade during that time , so you can spend all your free time with your family for Christmas. I hope you will agree with this too.
This will be fair to everyone , because if we keep running, the server while DNS propagates then thousands of members will not be able to Login, Also before we start with upgrade there might be around 100.000 members. So we want to avoid any problems and we want to be absolutely fair to everyone. It’s better not to risk anything.
I have plans for the future but it’s still early and u will be informed when time comes This is just a beginning of our journey and I’m amazed with the number of members that we are getting daily! Thanks to all once again! You are doing a great job for DigAdz and we are trying to do the same for you!
