Finally! After threatening to cancel my Rogers@home, they finally setup a date for a techie to come to my house and check things out. (Feb 10th the exact date)

I told them that i suspected that it was my MODEM's fault for my slow speeds so I threatened to cancel. Than they said they would send techie to come over and do some diagnostic tests to determine the root of my problem.

My question is what can I do to make he techie "work faster and think harder?" Bribing them? What will they offer

Actually, wearing shoes (preferably rubber soled) are a "good" thing while working inside a PC. The tech would be less likely in shoes than in socks or bare feet to accidentally discharge a static blast into your PC and sensitive components.

Working on a PC while on "carpet" can be risky. Also, a static wrist strap is a must. I wouldn't complain if they had shoes on on my carpet. AND I will loan them the wrist strap because my tech didn't even have one.

Just a thought...
