Deja ah-choo – hay fever season.
I’ve been doing it for a while.
Two years aro, I got $60 a month off my bill. When they put it back on, I called again and this time I only got $50 a month off the bill.
With “competition” from streaming, the local monopoly is more willing to make concessions to their, for lack of a better word, customers.
Our options are Direct TV which is tolerable and Spectrum which took the technical incompetence of Comcast and combined it with the worst of customer service from Time Warner.
DTV at least answers the phone and their reps usually speak English.
Alexa, go (expletive deleted) yourself!
Sorry Dave, I can’t do that.
Big Brother is watching you.
When I was job searching back in the mid-90’s, i encountered a person on line who was helping me with my resume.
She asked if I had a resume, and I told her yes. And then she asked what it was written in and I told her troff.
She asked me what troff was and I told her it was a unix typesetting language.
She asked me if I had ever heard of MS-Word.
I told her, “I don’t do Windows.”
I did a lot of very neat things generating reports with Informix, C and troff.
I had to switch due to the pressures of the business world. I do miss shell scripting.
I am pissed off with the mainstream media right now. In an attempt to boost ratings, they have borrowed a tactic from the far-right media: fear and sensationalism.
Let’s dwell on “breakout infections” and one-in-a-million reactions to scare people from getting the vaccine.
Your choices are simple: don’t take the vaccine and contribute to prolonging the pandemic while increasing the odd that you will catch the disease and greatly increase the odds that you will be hospitalized and wind up on a ventilator and put you in to a prime position to be come one more death
Take the vaccine and perhaps be the one in a million that has a negative reaction.
1 in a million shot that it’s a bad thing. 999,999 in a million chance that it’s a good thing. I know where I’m placing my bet.
With cable companies, you have to call them about once a year and tell them you want to cancel your service.
They will ask you if you are moving. You say no.
Then they connect you to a customer retention representative.
Simply state that you are switching because the bill is too high.
This is a bad rap.
