I just got off the phone with one of those internet usage survey things. They had questions about Bell/Sympatico. My answers were, quite understandably, less than glowing. I’m a very […]
Sadly, Canadian citizens only. But interested Canadian citizens can certainly voice their opinion.
In order to address my issues with not being able to keep a stable connection to Bell’s ever so craptastical intarwebz, they have graciously lowered my maximum connection speed in an attempt to stabilize things. Roughly translated: Don’t ask me to download anything for you until I switch ISPs. Now it’s officially at a crawl. […]
It’s still happening. Thanks for a whole wad-o-nothin’, moron of the year. Is it the 27th yet…?
Shortly after cancelling my Sympatico account, I considered how best to take full advantage of the fact Bell will, as of the 27th of this month, no longer be able to directly screw me over. And I’ve decided, I can only do so by beating them to the punch, and promptly screwing them over. So, […]
I keep saying I should, I’ve even threatened to a time or 3. But today I actually did so without thinking about it. Well, okay, I actually *did* think about it. After apparently 3 more times in the span of an hour last night I got the royal boot off teh intarwebz. So I call […]
I’ll randomly post articles from technology related sites on here at times, mostly to point out the utter moronicness of the situations in question. Techdirt gets nominated as my source for local stupidity.
For the second time in just over a month, my internets decided they would go south on me. Not pretty. It happened sometime between when I woke up at 5, rolled over, checked the time, cursed, and went back to sleep, and when I finally dragged my ass out of bed at about 7:20 or […]
It, apparently, started last night at some point, and didn’t get straightened out until about 6:00 this morning. Not sure if anything I did to correct it actually helped or not, but at least in doing so I could tell it wasn’t anything within my control that was screwed. Translation: Sympatico sucks. Loads. But it’s […]
Welp, as some of you know and others of you guessed I’m sure by now, the formerly Vista and now XP computer is up and running. Well, partially. No wireless network support and there’s still a rather lengthy list of devices Windows doesn’t have drivers for. But I’m slowly piecing that together. Now, here’s why […]
Because I only have a couple minutes before my shift starts. My late birthday present, one hell of a computer, should be shipping today. It’s about time. Apparently, the storm we got yesterday took out my internet service, and Sympatico decided to conveniently state there were no service outages in the area. Disproven. That didn’t […]
Dear Sympatico, Kindly stop blowing sunshine up my ass and lower the bloody prices for a change, rather than continuing to increase them. I’ve noticed no significant improvement in my service since I signed up, and therefore left scratching my head as to what, exactly, this price hike is supposed to go towards–besides some CEO’s […]
And this time, the no contest nod goes to my ISP for taking for freaking ever to escentially flip a switch. I’d originally got told before I moved up here that I’d have everything activated by the 6th of this month. Okay, so that’s not bad. I can live with that. Except not really. Because […]
I’ve begun the process of phasing out that email address. Also, due to the fact I’ll hopefully be moving at some not too distant point, pending job prospects. For those of you curious to contact me, my MSN is the most recent thing to get a changing. The old address is done, in favour of […]
Okay, so I decide to finally make an email address on this server serve as my primary one, because well, I’m insanely tired of sympatico. Logical choice, you’d think. And you’d be right… usually. But, the day I decide to do it is the day they break their servers. So, while I can send email […]
