Fourth Night In Internet Hell

I've Become A TechnoWuss...


The good news is my Internet service is back on.

The bad news it was out again last night for ANOTHER four hours.

A Comcast found my previous posting and commented here with an apology for my inconvenience.

Consider the apology accepted...

Al Gorgasms

I'm NOT Sorry I'm So "INSENSITIVE"


Just in case you haven't noticed (else you have lapsed into a catatonic comma watching the Senate hearings on soon to be Supreme Court Judge Sotomayer) it's now July 17th, 48 days beyond the beginning of the official government declared and decreed "HURRICANE SEASON"...

And because I'm just really a silly little simple bigoted, egotistical, racist, backwoods redneck blogger...

And as our United States Congressional Assholes--residing in the House and the Senate--spend their time in front of the microphones and cameras considering putting an "enlightened Latina" on the "Supreme Court" and Crapping Passing Taxing "Capping and Trade" and deforming "reforming" or conforming our "health care policies" by spending more money to avoid bankruptcy in the image of Medicare and Medicaid and the VA health system...

But...

But...

I just have to ask...

Has anyone but me noticed that there HAS ONLY BEEN ONE TROPICAL "ANYTHING" IN THE ATLANTIC/GULF BASIN AND ONE IN THE PACIFIC BASIN AND TONIGHT THE NOAA PICTURE LOOKS LIKE THIS IMAGE:



No?

Nan?

Nada?

So all I have to say is screw Al Gore and screw all of you sniveling, booger eating, tree hugging global climate changin', eco-friendly crap heads...


GIVE US 0UR COUNTRY BACK AND GO FIND SOMEPLACE IN EUROPE TO LIVE...

Three Nights Of The Living Dead In Internet Hell

What Hair I have Left I'm Pulling Out...


This morning I'm tempted to utter the words: "screw the Internet and screw modern technology..."

That's said as I think back to what the past THREE nights have been like here in Eastern Tennessee.

Night before last Comcast decided to pull some kind of "maintenance outage" which lasted from somewhere after midnight until somewhere after 4 AM when I finally went to bed again.

That would also be after I spent most of FOUR HOURS resetting my cable modem and router and running around between our home server PC and two laptops trying to decide if the problem was internal or external.

I finally called the bastards and was matter of factly informed that there was in fact a "maintenance outage" and they had sent notification to my Comcast e-mail account to that effect.

I haven't logged on to a Comcast e-mail account since the first months after we signed up for their so called "high speed" Internet while living on our little Island back about 2004 because all I ever got was SPAM BS e-mails from Comcast trying to sell me something or tell me about a "partners" unwanted services.

So any way, then last night we were blasted with a weather front that came through and thunder and lightened and grumbled around for three or four hours dumping over two inches of rainfall in my back yard, and again about 12:30 the power went off here and in spite of having a giant 14 giggawatt battery back up on the server PC I elected to shut down and read some more of Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged" out on the carport by flashlight (while smoking a cheap cigar.)

The electricity from the federal government power company juice from Tennessee Valley Authority started flowing again about 6:15 by the account given to me by our neighbors who were trying to shower and get out the door to work about then.

Just now I've begun to write this morning's rant after enduring another almost THREE HOUR unexplained Internet outage AGAIN....oh Oh OH Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.......

Screw civilization and screw technology...I say that IF we actually need to communicate long distance to protect life and limb and property that we all better start buying ourselves a few thousand feet of string and some paper cups because if we stay reliant on the crap we're all relying on right now we're going to pay dearly some day pretty soon when the Koreans and Iranians get their way.

That will be all...for now...

Dammit...

I Can't Leave Well Enough Hard Enough Alone

Additional Pain & Suffering Courtesy of Home Depot...


I was staring at my railing painting project the past few days and couldn't help notice the pealing reddish/brown paint on the front porch and guess what???

I went BACK to Home Depot and spent another hundred dollars on Muric acid and paint stripper chemicals and grinding stuff and exterior concrete patio paint and now I have to go and burn my eyes and skin removing the crappy paint off the railing and the porch surfaces.

Did I mention getting the existing paint splatters off the front brick wall surfaces?

I'm crazy I guess but I've started and now I have to finish.

Dang it...

Grinding The Paint On My Wrought Iron Railings

Dying Of Lead Poisoning In The Process...


So here I am, finding myself immersed in the early stages of my latest home improvement project--attacking 46 years of paint, rust, and paint over rust on about 25 feet of ornamental steel/iron railing.

When we first moved in I had the intention of updating the appearance of the front porch with new columns and railings, but over the past 15 months the obvious heavy upgraded appearance and quality of the railings has grown on us...that and the reality of having limited funding at this time to take on such a project.

Thus after a $50 trip to Home Depot for some Rustolium, mineral spirits, and Bondo I'm now scraping and grinding away the bad spots while trying to avoid swallowing or inhaling paint chips and dust thrown up by the wire brush spinning in my drill.

Time to go back and do another section.
