Fiona and me in the snow

(no subject)

It seems as my entries without subject seem to be better structured and more with a clue. So I, in the ever present search for a subject, am not going to use one.

Did a show yesterday. Let's just say that the internet is *****not***** fixed, no t3, no freaking bandwidth. So all through the Hobbit, the thing disconnected all the time. Let's say the classicnet will be getting irate call from ner on Monday. Apparently, Quest, the phone company or telecommunications company is supposed to put in the line "sooner or later, maybe in a month" that was two months ago. Anyway, enough of that, KXUA tonight, and maybe internet will behave somewhat so as not to piss me off. Pissing me off means I write about it and you know how much you want to read when I get pissed off? I know I know.

So I continued to do nothing yesterday after the aftereffects of the coffee infection wore off. I'm in the process of uploading these extremely funny BBC Radio dramas up to some kind of a cool site, and it's taking for freaking ever. I guess I can be thankful that we have cable internet out here in teh freaking middle of nowhere.

I don't have many plans for today, just the usual crap, crap, and more crap. Shall return later, so be warned. I must write this article, so I guess that should be what I do today. Yeah, great idea! More later, peace out.

cool technicians

I should take back what I said about Classic net. I was not irate and explained my problem to Matt, a guy I'd actually talked to before seeing as I've called them lots of times. He said that the t3 hadn't been installed yet, sure enough, and I said that this was not too acceptable. He agreed, said hold on let me do something. He had me do a couple of things and then told me to try my uploads again. What he's done is given me premium business coverage meaning I can upload at a higher rate, 768 k and also download at a higher rate. I asked him if it would show up on our bill and he said no it wouldn't it. Damn technicians have too much power, not. So, I'll be doing tests later but as I wwas able to upload at like 60 k/sec earlier I doubt I'll have any other problems, at least I hope not. We'll see. Not that you care, but I'll write back about how it worked or not. Long live the bad and immoral technician that gives out free internet services. Bad bad technician, bad! Matt said to call again if the new bandwidth hadn't been installed soon. Guess I'll have to ask for him, the horrible and audacious technician. Classic net rocks!
