I’m actually doing this but yes, I’m on dial-up right now. Wow, reminds me of the days when I had the TRS-80 and a 300 baud modem. Unbelievable, but that is where Time Warner has put me. No, they still haven’t repaired the connection, they claim now that they will be here Tuesday. Must be nice to be a monopoly and have sucky customer “service” (I just can’t use that word in relation them). So, I went ahead and cancelled it, I mean, heck, if it isn’t going to work anyways, why pay for it?
Now, don’t get me wrong, I’d much rather pay for it – but, I can’t bring myself to continue paying them $50 bucks a month for such poor treatment. Unfortunately, I’ve no other high speed options (well, I suppose there is satellite but that has it’s own problems and HIGH cost) in the hinterlands. Our phone lines are too far away from the service point for DSL, so, I’m stuck. Not sure what I’ll do in the long term, but, for right now, it’s dial-up.
Wouldn’t have bothered with dial-up except that I can’t really do my banking stuff manually anymore, I think I’ve forgotten how! Maybe it’s like riding a bicycle but the shock of dial-up is enough for my system right now.
Going to head out in a few minutes and let SU test drive a few cars. Only thing worse than dealing with Time Warner is dealing with a car salesman, so I’m not really looking forward to it. But, it must be done. Late.
