Whines of the Day

I keep planting birdseed, but all that comes up are weeds.

I hate that I often base my designs around the limitations of my Internet speed. If there are any Iowa politicians out there – WE NEED INFRASTRUCTURE OUT HERE. Our only options were WildBlue and Hughes.net. We went with WildBlue because they swore up and down they’d triple the speed and lift the usage limits “sometime in the first quarter of 2011.” We’re still waiting.

I hate how everyone complains about Verizon’s cell phone service, yet Verizon does nothing about it. It’s amazing how “the acreage you’re buying is right in the middle of a strong 3G coverage area” turns into, “we’re sorry, we’ve never had good coverage out there” as soon as you sign on the dotted line…

I’m not happy that my blogs aren’t showing up in Facebook as notes like they should. I realize that both Blogger and Facebook are free, but shouldn’t they work as advertised nonetheless?

I hate that my Internet Service Provider makes me use an outdated version of a browser I don’t like, because “all the new stuff they released doesn’t work with our system.”

    You could try planting actual birds but then I fear you’d just have more birds sitting along the Verizon screwing up your reception.

    I keep planting birdseed – You trying to grow some “Yardbirds”?

    I grew up in rural Illinois. Last house on the powerline. When visiting them, I would have to drive up the road a ways, top a hill, and let my phone connect and download my email. (Thankfully, they’ve “moved into town” and they get a reasonable signal.)

    And sorry about your ISP. Got to be frustrating.
