    Angry No DC for me

    About three weeks ago I spoke to my telephone company and had them upgrade me from a Nortel 1Meg Modem to a Bit Stream 1.5Meg Modem because they have upgraded the service in my area and the modem trade up is free.

    This past Tuesday I noticed my Sync light on my modem was out so I called the telephone company and they said that they had already run my new line card. I advised them that I had not received my new modem and that I was now out of service. They said that the modem was shipped on the 19th and that I should see it today. I called Canada Post this morning and they said that the package was being sent back Toronto because the address was incorrect.

    I called my ISP and advised them of the error and let them know what I thought of the stituation, which does't really do anything but I felt better for letting them have it. (I let the guy know that it wasn't his fault personally but that I could kill them right now!)

    I should get it by the beginning of next week but until then I am stuck with my dialup backup offered by my ISP!

    Hey ScottE, I guess it just goes to show how long I have been out of the loop. I hope to get back soon and return to the killing fields.

    See you guys next week. Keeping fingers crossed!

    rouse, I hope you get things up and going again soon bro..

    I made a brief appearance tonight on the server from my wife's PC.. I can't stand playing on it as it does not run as smooth as my downed rig. I was a bit rusty as well.

    I've narrowed down my board/mem options and will just be waiting a couple more paychecks..

    good to see some familiar soldiers on the fields..

    I guess I didn't read your reply close enough Kold. I had no idea that you were down too until ScottE replied. Hopefully the money rolls in quickly for you.

    London, just down the road from you Immy!

    I had Rogers before and had really bad service, kinda like what I am getting from Bell right now, so I have stayed away from them. The problem with Rogers for me was that it never worked and there was a ton of packet loss. They have since upgraded the coax in my area so if Bell doesn't produce soon, I'm going to cable.

    I have never had a problem with Bell until they upgraded my lines and offered a better modem. Now I am in Bell Hell!!!!
