Yeah, I posted one, deleted that one and posted another in that time (with my little one finger typing); you need to go into the future and get the latest net technology for us.

Well speaking of interent providers...I loathe Verizon. Two years ago I had their service and it went out for three months. It go so bad that I had the supervisor's home phone number and she called me everyday to reassure that they were working on it.

The problem? The local office had the color coded wires in backwards...
They gave me free interent for 5 years AND a speed increase every three months cause of it but I still don't forgive them> My past Runescape days suffered cause of it

RuneScape today on dial-up is hard. I tried moving a seed from one tab to another and lost connection.

I envy your ability to get Verizon, when they were here they were not in our area, Fairpoint plans to be in our area late 2010.

I second zidane about verizon. the only way I ever got it straightened out was to pay a local linemen $50 to troubleshoot it. And of course he did for all of 2 weeks. btw verizon doesn't in their TOS say that you will have service 24x7. Useless

Geez, there's no excuse for that; they actually told you the reason why? If I'd have been them I'd have been too ashamed to admit that.

I will never forget that day...I was in High School and Mom just came to pick me up...She got a call on her cell and they asked for me. It was the actual Supervisor again and she flew from Washington down to Marion. She went into the main office...looked at the wires and reversed them. I have never heard someone apologize so much for what transpired...and was also quite surprised when I heard her tell everyone in that office to go home and wait for their last check to come in the mail The crazier part was that she had been BY MY HOUSE to ask for me to come to the main office to get a straight answer and no one was there
