  • Request For New Medal

    That's it - I am requesting a special medal for guys like me whose ISP melts down everytime someone looks at it without smiling.

    Lost my DSL first - tried to revert to...shudder...the old dial-up and it wasn't even there. Took THREE WEEKS to get a repairman to come out, but they wanted to keep billing me for the DSL connection the whole time.

    After some sweet, diplomatic words dimly remembered from my service career, the kind that scorch paint and melt chrome off of bumpers, the unwashed and unknowing at Qwest finally agreed that a) there was a problem, yep, sure 'nuff and b) they needed to send a repair guy. So now I have my @#$%&* dial-up back and am still waiting for the misbegotten DSL. Seems the redneck they sent wasn't a DSL repairman, just the ordinary kind.

    There ought to be a medal of some kind, maybe a tiny little gold Qwest guy sitting on a white platinum commode on a field of chocolate brown silk with a bloody red stripe down the middle...

    How about one for those who survived The War Banner Advertising incident of 2007?

      You know, I'd like a medal for my efforts as well. This site would practically collapse without my magnificent personality and skills.


      I'd also like a medal for being the most modest person ever.

          Just from that statement alone, you deserve it!

          I got a call from Qweat a little while ago - they have cleared up my problem! Unhooked dial-up, re-hooked DSL - guess what? Still doesn't work.

          What is the primary qualification to be a Qwest technician? I don't know either, but some sort of terminally abysmal ignorance seems probable.

            I think I figured it out MM . . .

            They only hire the least qualified repairmen now so they can spend more money on advertising how great their service is.

            My DSL goes down about every 90 days and I've now got it down to the point I can tell the repairman to go to the local switch and reverse my connection.

                  The {poof} is especially trying for a typing challenged guy like me.

                    I know a guy that works for Sprint and lives sorta in the sticks. Still has high speed business DSL lines or whatever they are called (he told me I don't remember). He gets a big discount on it because he went over to help out the poor guys as they fiddeled for hour after hour and told them how to fix the problem.
