Free Computers for Tax Filing at Brooks Library

The Brooks Memorial Library at 224 Main Street in Brattleboro offers free sessions on its public access computers for filing taxes online.

Because the IRS and Vermont Department of Taxes have severely limited their distribution of paper tax forms through libraries, many citizens are turning to online filing, which has many benefits—including, in many cases, a quicker refund.

The library cooperates with the Windham County United Way and its partner agencies to provide access to www.myfreetaxes.com, where citizens with household incomes at or below $60,000 can file their taxes for free.

Fairpoint Internet Outage

Fairpoint's high-speed interent service seems to be offline for Vermont and New Hampshiire.

As we rely on it (I'm away from the world HQ at the moment), updates to the site and answers to emails will be minmal, if at all, until they sort things out.

I wonder where Fairpoint could find a bunch of talented, knowledgeable technicians to help them bring this back online more quickly? Hmmm...

Three Headed Dog

A central aspect of being a surfer is getting innundated with weather reports. If ever a group had its eyes on big storms and ’watershed events' it’s the children of waves.  And the buzz now is zonkers over superstorm Nuri in the Northern Pacific. Nuri's impact as a typhoon is starting to lessen, but nonetheless the Explosive Cyclogenesis (aka weather bomb) is charted as the most powerful event of its kind, ever.

Nuri began as a low pressure incident just off Guam a few days before Halloween, now over Alaska, soon to wreak its wreckage over the lower 48.
