Sweet broadband!

Just a quick bit of news today.

After ordering Broadband over the internet, and getting the confirmation email saying they would call ‘shortly’ to set up the appointment…I got a little impatient.

Today marked one week since that email, so I finally cracked and called them up to ask what the hell the delay was.

So after calling Charter, talking to their help department, then being put through to tech support, help desk again, back to tech support, then (oddly) to the DVR enquiries line, before going back to the first person I talked to…who put me through to sales…I finally got to talk to the right person.

“You always know you’re in trouble when you ask a simple question, get about a minute and a half’s silence, followed by “I’ll put you through to X, they’ll know how to help you.”

The work order didn’t go through, but I managed to set up an appointment to have broadband put in this coming Sunday.

Seeing as it’s now 12.07am, I can say in all honesty, that I’ll have 3mb Broadband tomorrow.

Sweet broadband! It’ll have to do before I can get the internet directly connected to my veins.

However, I’d like to assure all of my regular readers that, despite the fact that I’ll have the bandwidth to do it, ‘Life, What the Hell is Going On?” will remain an animated gif, non-stoppable midi file and annoying sound effect free zone.

(Today's handy hint : For those of you who got screwed by emachines, and are forced to write your posts in Microsoft works, pasting the text in 'edit html' instead of 'compose' preserves the formatting.)

Today's hint is brought to you by Paulius Brand Assorted Animal-Part Spread...Mmm, mmm, mmmm, you can really taste the spleen!)

Spleen! That's what that is. I thought it was pancreas, but no, you're right, it's spleen.
