Yes, because Comcast customer support was the solution to woes in Time Warner's customer support.




I once had to deal with 3 months of living with Comcast (when I was in DC). Wow.

Oh really? I was assuming it couldn't have been any worse than Time Warner and only improved it.

as much as I (everybody) complains about TWC, I've always had ok service when people come out to the help. Two instances that I can recall: first, guy noticed I had an old internet modem thing (he was there to fix a cable box, not a modem), and he went out to the truck and did a full replace and setup, and then re-did all the wires from outside to get me faster service. Second, when I moved to W'Burg, the cable connection next to the TV was shot, so they neatly wound a wire from the cable connection at the other side of the room - i expected them to just leave a cord running along the floor next to the wall baseboard, but they set it up nicely. Low expectations were exceeded both times.

of course, I'm still getting a bill for service that I cancelled in July, but that's a whole different matter.



For Comcast, we once had a group of technicians over to fix the internet, and after careful consideration, that group declared that it's the 5 computers in the house that are broken (and, coincidentally, all broke at the exact same time), and not their internet service. Then they left.

It has been awhile since I had TW, but I don't recall any issues. I've had Comcast for a year, and they've been pretty much as bad as I'd heard. However, no TV/internet company has ever matched Charter when it comes to pure, spectacular awfulness. They were so bad it almost seemed intentional.

I have TW for cable and Verizon for my internet and home phone.

Just last week, TW called me trying to "up-sell" me on their triple play package. I said that one of the reasons that I don;t want to switch is that if I have just 1 provider and my service goes out, I am SOL. During Superstorm Sandy, I always had either my internet or cable working.

I also have to swap TW cable boxes at least 2-3 times a year after they fail.

Woman and I spoke for a while. I was asking her questions, some of which she could answer and some she apologized for not answering. Whatever. I was just killing time.

What happened earlier today....cable box went down. After unplugging and plugging back in 5-6 times...and after 30 minutes, it came back on. I was fully expecting to have to swap out the box again.

From what I have read, TW's cust service is much better than Comcast.

I am located in a small section of NEPA that still has an independent cable company. I only use them for internet access but they are awesome.



Also, it might help that I have rep'd 3 of their service personnel on DUI/drug charges.

Cablevison has been a PITA for me. I have not been able to get them to fix an incessant lag in the signal that requires me to watch on a 10 second delay. They always blame the wiring in the house that was done by the prior owners.

A homeless person had on whiter socks than me.

Betimes I listen to "dream pop" music in my office to where if I want to sing along I have to do hell of falsetto. (The singers are always female and sing in a breathy voice of which is not natural to me needless to say.) Sometimes people come into my office be like "where did that lady go I know there is a lady in here be singing." And I sheepishly say "Naw thawas me." shog[1].gif

Julie Cruise?
post #74186 of 85767
In that general kind of style, yes. But I've been singing along to such as Still Corners and Lyla Foy.

My reglar voice is deep of tone to where I have to sing falsetto even to sing Interpol songs. (Of course that is also a symptom of I am not a good singer!)

Ted Levine?

The CFO of the company who employs me has an awesome voice. It is very deep, somewhat monotone and he has this friendly somewhat mid-western accent to which anything he says sounds very important.

I can give you some key insights as to why off the record. SEC prohibits me from making forward looking statements via Style Forum.
