Happy 2000th post to me :)

I know it's not 5000 or anything...but hey, it's still gotta be a milestone of some sort.

Optimum Online is amazing. Most people put it down until they don't actually have it. It's so reliable. It's probably been out 5 times for me in the 5 or 6 or maybe 7 years I've had it. I know people who have ISPs that are out ALL the time.

I got it the first year it came out. Had some issues at first but other than that, it's been fine. Once in a while I have a problem but it's a smaller ISP (though they are connected with Road Runner and Comcast) but we have voice too. So tv, online and voice, cheap and reliable (except for their idiot online tech support staff lol).

AT&T came to the shop to fix the lines, there's nothing wrong with the lines so they were supposed to send another idiot to look @ the phone system (we have 3 lines and 6 phones - not that big of a deal) but line one is still dead and won't switch to line two, so it was pretty quiet again today. But the funny thing is, line 2 works and the dsl/fax/alarm line works just fine (though I hate dsl!). We may switch to Optimum Business because it's still cheaper than the phone company (we've been thinking about it for a while).

I didn't realise how bad ISPs are in the US. By comparison, in the UK internet connections are incredibly reliable. I've been with NTL for about 6 years, and it's only gone down once, at most twice, in all that time.

Yeah, AOL and all of the dial up ISPs are terrible. AT&T's dsl isn't too bad but I don't like it. I like my cable and wouldn't switch unless I move :D

Mmh, same here. I'm in Belgium, and I have Belgacom Skynet ADSL. It hasn't really been down yet, the only problem I've experienced was the DNS server being down (happened twice).

Quite happy with it all actually :P And not such a bad speed either... although that 10GB/month limit is killing me.

Ok here's my AT&T dilema update. They really pissed me off!

Here's what happened:
Today is tax day and the accountant's office couldn't get ahold of me, so they new to call home, so Mom relayed the message, Dad went to pick up the returns.

I called AT&T to follow up on the support ticket, their automated system said it was resolved, I said hell no! I talked to the representative and got put on hold, she said it had been cancelled yesterday. I told her that I was on the phone with them when the line tech was still here and she put me on hold again. So I was on hold for about 10 minutes total, if not more. She comes back to the phone and says: "you don't have a support contract with us" after I had been told that I did yesterday. I told her that I threw the check in the mail yesterday for some maintenance thing that we pay once a year for whatever - I don't really know what it actually is. So she's like well, there'll be a charge. I said I don't care! I need the phone to work! She said she'd get someone out here today (she better! Now that half the day is almost over).

Customers can't get through and if our accountant's office didn't know to call my Mom (this is a family business so yeah) then we would've been late on our taxes and got penalties and fines and all of that lovely crap >:(

Ugh! I just love managing an office >:(

Eh, so the girl that worked with me got fired yesterday and now next week someone else will be coming in to talk to my Uncle about helping me in the office (at least I can train her so that when I finally leave for another job, I can leave with confidence)...

Ah and I arrived to work 3 hours late today too :D (my ear dr's office screwed up). But today's been an ok, sorta slow day.

I read! lol I can't stand people like that! If someone opens their mouth and speaks like they came from the gutter, I blow them off because they're not worth my time. If you sound like that and you happen to be intelligent, there goes the impression of having any type of intelligence. If I can't understand you, you might as well not say anything at all.
