    The meaning of Irony

    Amazing. The telco's really do hate everyone equally....


    I swear, the problem started when some poor CSR put a call on hold to laugh and joke that some guy on the phone that claims he's the CEO of Microsoft and is cursing him out. Then transfered his call to /dev/null.... I could probably see myself doing that ...

    Steve Ballmer really must be stupid. In his position id just install Satellite Internet.

    Or maybe pay them 50,000 to build a telephone sub station at the bottom of his road!

    But, remember for Sat your upstream is liimited to the speed of you dial-up connection....


    But, yeah... If he really wanted it I'm sure he could probably just pay UU or Level 3 to run fiber to his house. Make a little server farm in the basement (You know we all want to )...

    Amazing... I thought they just hated me

    He could afford a T1 or T3 so if he really wants broadband he'll get it.

    Something I love doing to telemarketers

    They call, ask for so and so... I say "one moment please" press the hold button and go on about my daily business ... then when the phone starts beeping at me a few minutes later I disconnect the call. Funnily enough they don't call back

    As for broadband... I applied for 512/128 ADSL a few days ago - haven't heard back but I hope it's accepted

    actually that story makes me feel a lot better about having my wallet out ready to pay for it an hour south of Seattle and found out it wasn't available anywhere nearby.

    Oddly, Tacoma is reputed to have the most fibre of any city on the US for it's size, and all virtually unused - if the story is true.
