My New Favorite Children’s Story

October 6, 2009

This is my new favorite children’s story:
Once upon a time there was a poor child,
with no father and no mother
And everything was dead
And no one was left in the whole world
Everything was dead
And the child went on a search, day and night
And since nobody was left on the earth, he wanted to go up into the heavens
And the moon was looking at him so friendly
And when he finally got to the moon, the moon was a piece of rotten wood
And then he went to the sun
And when he got there,
the sun was a wilted sunflower
And when he got to the stars,
they were little golden flies.
Stuck up there, like the shrike sticks ’em on a blackthorn
And when he wanted to go back, down to earth,
the earth was an overturned piss pot
And he was all alone, and he sat down and he cried
And he is there till this day All alone:
Okay, there’s your story!
Night-night!

AT&T UVerse is terrible

June 24, 2009

Upon navigating and having to login to at&t’s UVerse customer three times before getting to the ‘contact us’ page, I wrote them this email to hopefully recieve some customer assistance sometime soon:

The television is unwatchable due to periods of hdmi error, loss of audio and jumpy buffering problems on the central dvr and far more unwatchable on the other boxes. The internet is intermitent.
This must be remedied because at the moment your television service is worse than trying to stream video on a dial-up connection and the internet is less consistent than one.
Please advise, or as a new customer I will feel the need to abandon your service.

I hit the submit button, and was greated by a “Page not found or has been moved error page.”  I would think this was funny if I was not trying to download a very small attachment from an email I sent myself but cannot because the internet connection I have in my own home is at the moment so slow and inconsistent that a 76k download keeps timing out.  If AT&T does not fix this for me soon I will be forced to irritate them into giving me free intermitent and barely functional service for life no matter where I go and what I do.
