My status

My high speed Internet connection has gone completely down. Compost is sending a technician out early Monday morning to figure out what's wrong with it. Until my Internet is fixed daily music is at a halt since it's impractical to attempt to do that over a slow-speed modem connection. And no, I'm not going to use my employer's bandwidth to browse music videos during the workday.

  1. I will NEVER forget/forgive Dell service ;"It's the motherboard dude, just buy a New Computer!". Choke, spurt, warranty aside. Like I had another Grand to throw away. assholes.

  2. Yeah, Dell is on my black list at the moment; my two-year-old (out of warranty) Dell computer decided that both it's wired and wireless internet hardware were going to break down. So now I'm using external USB adapters for both -- it's waaay to soon to buy a new computer -- and muttering imprecations at Dell.

    Tux, sorry about the Comcast debacle. I think I hung up on one of their salespeople just the other day.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
