Someone on the street came up to me:

Person:  "I had a shiba too, for 20 years.  She died 6 months ago"

Me:  "O that's really nice"

My post lamenting my loss of 5 likes had TWO whole likes.

Fun with new ISP!

---

Chat:

ISP: Your installation appointment for tomorrow has been cancelled.

Me: Why is that?  I didn't request this.

ISP: Service at your address was soft-disconnected, so the team cancelled your appointment.

Me: I just moved to this address.  I am a *new* customer.

ISP: Whoops!  We'll have someone out tomorrow.  I promise!

***20 minutes later***

They called me:

ISP: No one is coming out.  We disconnected your service.  Plus you have to return your modem.

Me: Uh...?  I'm a new customer...?

ISP: You need to go to a local store with [shitloads of documents, proof of ownership, and IDs] for help.  Or call billing.

Me: Can you transfer me?

ISP: No. 

:mindblown

---

Chat:

Me: Someone just told me that nobody is coming and my service has been disconnected.  I'm really confused because I'm a new customer.  I don't have any service yet.

ISP: Did you get our equipment already?

Me: No, I signed up for service. 

ISP: OK.  They disabled your account.  But I can set it up again, no worries.

***10 minutes later***

ISP: It won't let me do it.  May I ask that you call 1-800-WAIT-FOREVER?

And I've now been on hold for 45 minutes.

After an hour on hold, I get technical support.  This time the person thankfully knows what's going on and tells me that I need to be transferred to sales to set the account up again.

I get transferred...

...and this puts me back into the same queue that I called in the first place, with an automated voice telling me to restart the modem for troubleshooting purposes, wait 10 minutes, then it hangs up on me.  :lol
:dead

I am now unable to call them back since it just tells me the modem I don't have is restarting.   :derp

Heh- I was charged a fee already, a few weeks ago, when I set up the install date.  When they started saying they'd have to start over with the account, I mentioned this and got a long pause before they said "you'll get credited at some point for that."  :doge

I can service from my current ISP at this new address, too, it's just that the don't offer the same speeds and it would be a bit of a downgrade. After last night, I think I may end up just sticking with them regardless and will just do a chargeback on the other ISP.

Got rear ended today, neck/shoulders/back already starting to give me issue which means I'm going to be fucked up and dealing with pain for months from this on top of all the pains from my other health problems.

Also fucked up the back of my new Tesla.

My life is so busy with so much shit going on I did not need this in my life. Turning 40 soon and it's a cursed birthday.

No insurance, doesn't even own a car or drive one, they were on a trip and rented a car.

What are you doing driving in LA if you never drive, no wonder they hit me   :derp


Went to the doc today and basically said nothing seems too damaged, so just give it time and start PT if not healed in two weeks. I'm ok but I just feel like I got the crap beat out of me. Can't sit and eat without my back & neck getting painful after a few mins. Luckily my Herman Miller chair I bought a few years ago for my back support works really well and doesn't do that so I can sit for longer periods of time with just moderate neck pain. Doc said I can start using heating pads and stretching in another day or two and try to help speed up recovery.

If they're renting a car that have some kind of insurance.

If they don't that's when you sue and go after their possessions

Took just about 2 hours to vote.  Never had anything over 30 mins before.  Mostly because the line was full of old people, who complained how long the line to each election official that would pass by, then to anyone else the at would have the miss fortune of meeting eye contact, and then they would spend like 10 minutes to draw an x beside one of the seven names.

Moved into my new house in September, was meant to get internet and TV in on September 22nd, it's now the 25th. Engineer came today, basically by the exchange the pit has collapsed.

So that means my ass is gonna be waiting at least another month for them to fix that issue and also come out AGAIN for my install.

I just want internet, using phone data is absolutely shit. Like honestly, if I could go somewhere else and get decent speed I would, but I can't fucking Stockholm syndrome.

I wouldn't be so annoyed, but the customer service has been so shit. None of the internal teams seem to have any clue what is going on between departments.

Alas, yet another phone call in a bit to have yet another argument. Fuck my life!

While in the USA, I watched a shit-ton of 8-Out-of-10 Cats Does Countdown on YouTube. The advertisements drove me nuts, so I opted in to the Premium free month, and now I don't think I can go back to the advertising version.

...seems like the (included) YouTube Music even works here in Japan.

It seems ridiculous to pay more for YouTube than I do for Netflix, but those goddamned ads really do drive me insane.

As posted in the triumph thread, I have new UHD monitors at home. The working one is lovely.

I've been working at a standing desk setup at home for 1.5 years. I very much like it, except for when days go 12-14 hours. Then it's a drag. But I'm still a fan.

Took my crappy 19" Acer HD monitor off of my monitor arm, reattached its base, couldn't get the cosmetic panels back on. No biggie.

Tried to put the new UHD monitor on the arm. The monitor's bezel is about 2mm too small to accept the VESA mount. Tried every angle. Did everything except force it.*

Ended up disassembling my setup, putting the PC on the floor, and putting BOTH monitors on a seated-height desk.

First monitor works immediately. Looks GREAT.  Try connecting second screen, but 1.8 meter 4K DisplayCable balks at driving 2nd monitor. Try MST daisychaining them, fail. Order replacement cable.

Fingers crossed.
