4G LTE in MT

4G device-having Bozeman residents awoke to a nice surprise today…Verizon flipped the LTE switch a few months earlier than anticipated.

They must be calibrating the network, as my speed tests are all over the board. I have one run that was 14M down / 4M up, but several that sit in the 3G range.

Either way, exciting stuff and incredible timing.

Our offer for this giant tree was accepted.

Pending an inspection and some title work, this tree should belong to us on the 14th of July.

From Inept RA to Inept Sex Offender

I fired up the Bozeman Daily Chronicle today to find a treat. As luck would have it, my corpulent former RA from the dorms is in some hot water. Good stuff…

From the Cronicle:

A Belgrade man pleaded guilty in federal court Thursday to attempted sexual exploitation of children, U.S. Attorney Bill Mercer said in a written statement.

Rayne Allen Wolery, 30, was accused of corresponding with a 14-year-old girl on Facebook beginning in June.

According to prosecutors, Wolery had met the 14-year-old girl briefly in a chance encounter at a marina near Helena, then looked her up on Facebook and contacted her. When Wolery’s conversations became sexual, law enforcement in Helena began posing as the girl on her Facebook account.

Wolery sent pictures of his naked penis to the girl’s account and asked her to show them to a friend, prosecutors said. Wolery also asked the girl and her friend to take sexually explicit photographs of themselves and send them to him over the Internet.

Wolery was arrested, and a search of his computer and Nokia cell phone showed they had been used to communicate with the girl and undercover police.

When questioned, Wolery admitted sending the pictures of himself, thinking they were going to a 14-year-old girl and her friend. He also admitted to asking for explicit photos of the girls.

Sentencing is set for March 18, 2010. He is currently detained.

Wolery faces up to 30 years in prison, a $250,000 fine and lifetime supervision.

The investigation was a cooperative effort between the Federal Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and Montana Division of Criminal Investigation.

The Cronicle staff didn’t include a picture of this piece of shit…I will

That beady-eyed creep was too inept to carry out his RA duties with twenty of us honors students…I’m not surprised in the least that he botched his attempt at child predatorialism.

I don’t have any patience for this type of shit…with any luck Rayne will sit in prison for a long, long time. I’m glad the girls weren’t hurt, aside from damage incurred by viewing the picture of his “naked penis”, of course. Gross.
