The Enemy of the Good


Cingular made up big time for the lackluster service they gave me when trying to set up my service with them initially. After about an hour on the phone with two seperate techs, they put me on the line with a dude who fingered it out in 5 minutes. The other guys were supernice and very helpful, though. So, long story short, I now can access the internet at sub-dialup speeds through my cell phone, for only $5 more a month than I was paying. This will make up for the $50 I'm saving by not having cable internet for a month. I'm thinking about going through Earthlink when I do get it, because they'll give me 6 months at $29.95 (first three months are $20 a piece with the promo code). It uses Time Warner Cable's lines and all, but hey, fuck TWC. Is there a difference (aside from customer service) if I go through someone else? It's all down to who I make the check out to, I guess. Since TWC has the name recognition (I didn't know I could use Earthlink until someone from Information Boulevard pointed me to I guess they figure they can charge whatever. If I'm wrong, someone correct me.

I was supposed to be in Ithaca right now, unpacking. Furniture arrives tomorrow and I can't seem to stay away from the toilet for more than 15 minutes at a stretch. I don't have TIME to be sick, people! Let's go, move it move it!
