Public Service Announcement


For the past several days I have been getting terrible TV reception. My HD signal has been nearly nonexistent and even regular channels have had a lot of interference on them.

Now, to be honest with you, that's not really a major issue to me. I hardly ever turn the television on anyway. What I watch is mostly the news and between the internet at work and the daily newspaper I can easily keep up with current events. I do miss watching baseball, but it's not a big deal.

However, my internet access is via cable. And that has been working very sporadically the past few days. It's been off more than it's been on. And that pisses me off!

For the last few days I haven't had an internet connection long enough to update my blog. I've been dropped in the middle of chats. It makes me wonder why I pay Comcast well over $100 per month. We all know how buggy AdultFriendFinder is all by itself. I don't need further complications from the cable company!

Wouldn't it be nice if the local cable companies didn't have a monopoly? If we had a choice of carriers, I'm sure the price as well as services of the cable companies would both improve tremendously!

We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.

My day hasnt been much better. This morning my blog was missing. Wrote them and asked them where the hell it was, then it came back on. Then I get a letter from them written in German. I wrote them I only read and speak English. They said they would get back with me and havent.

How my magazine is missing? What the hell is going on?

As I said, AdultFriendFinder has enough bugs on its own. I really don't need those bugs compounded by Comcast!

I have comcast as an internet connection and although I haven't had nearly as much interference as you have....I've still had some problems. You can call and report it but it doesn't do any good. All you get is that stupid recording saying they are aware of the problem and are working hard to get it fixed.....it's just a bunch of BS if you ask me

The problems weren't so bad I didn't see YOUR blog tonight! I'm going to bed with a smile on my face now...

Thanks Robin. It seems to be slightly better today. And I saw Comcast trucks in the neighborhood, so maybe they'll get it back up to snuff soon.

around here comcast is changing to timewarner... and that has caused some issues with my service...it has also propelled me to make a priority list of those people that I know only via online..that i'd like to NOT lose contact with. I've gotten some real email addresses and even some phone numbers of those I do not want to drift away from just because the internet or even AdultFriendFinder helps me drift...

That's a good idea. Never know when this site is going to blow up for once and all!
