I am sure they are working on it. It doesn't make the folks here less friendly though.

Whew! Whatever happened (which I thought was permanent) has reverted back to how it looked before. THAT was weird!

Anyway, thanks for the reply. I'm glad it wasn't something someone really wanted to make it look like, because it was like staring at the hull of a battleship from 2 inches away. All ugly gray, with no lines or containment of the text.

P.S. - this is the RANT thread, right?

Go Cricket, Boost or Virgin Mobile. I will never purchase a contract phone. Lots of great phones available and the monthly rates are acceptable and you will know exactly what your monthly bill is as well.

You can purchase a Triumph, for example. Not to mention, one of those evil iPhones.

Software failure prevented you from receiving the PM on that, so I resent it - and that's my rant. Why does software fail most when it matters most??

Because someone didn't get a good systems engineer (like me) to design a system as a whole that's bulletproof.

I want to know why shipping box makers even bother to put in those "tear open" strings that always pull right out instead of opening the box. Why don't I never learn, and just start off by using my box-opening knife in the first place?

Bandaid had pull open strings that did the same years ago. You would try to pull the string down, and the string would pull out. So now they put separating tabs on the bandaid that still don't work (you can't grab them) in an extremely dry climate.

Your weather station probably covers a couple of counties. We get ours from Pueblo - covers El Paso, Fremont, Pueblo and probably a couple of other counties.

Bosses who think that spreadsheets and automated systems are so scary, they not only yell at you for suggesting something could be easier, but make you do all your work on paper with pen...and then they do not even look at the work, but give you more than can be done in an 8hr shift....if only spreadsheets and accounting software existed to make life more efficient and for an international corporation, no less.../rant

Sure, I'm in a county with a 1000W transmitter that reaches into neighboring counties. But the whole point of S.A.M.E. is so I don't have to listen to alerts that aren't for my specific area. S.A.M.E. stands for Specific Area Message Encoding.

Here's what grinds my gears right now: My ILEC (TDS) that keeps on shutting off my phone and DSL service every few months, and blaming it on me for not setting up auto-pay. It's set up just fine, and I haven't changed anything since the first time I set it up.

This last time is the last straw. Not only did they not restore my service promptly because the business office was closed, the jerk on the phone told me that he couldn't give me my new login (they keep changing their website) to my web account page "because it's FCC law". When I told him that the FCC doesn't make laws or regulate things like that, he insisted that I was wrong and he was right. Now I have to go through all the pain and suffering of having clueless cable installers come in to install my replacement Internet connection.

how about when they take the wrong thing off of your food... for example: im allergic to onions, and i order my burger without onions, i ask when they hand me the sandwich "this has no onions, correct?" they say yes. the wrapper has a 'no onion' tag and when you open it and look it has onions, BUT NO PICKLE?!?!?!?!?!?

Default Sprint Sux

WARNING: Strong language. Look away if you can't handle it.

Today I finally got my Sprint Airave femtocell. It was bad enough that it was sent, and therefore arrived after I was supposed to be out of town to visit my mother for her 89th birthday. (This one might be her last.) But the thing that really grinds my gears is how rude, aggressive and dishonest Sprint agents were when I called for help in getting their device to work.

The bottom line is that it wasn't configured. But they wasted my time by telling me to plug the device into different ports on my switch, and when I said that I had things plugged in and wouldn't just pull out Ethernet cables without good reason they got all authoritative, demanding that I screw my network for their convenience. When I refused, and explained that swapping PHY ports wasn't troubleshooting (it's a shot in the dark), I got the "who are you to tell me...?" bullshit. Well I told them (the 1st level tech and the "supervisor", who read from the same script) what my credentials were and that I knew that they were bullshitting me, they proceed to attack me for not cooperating. "We know best; you know nothing."

The straw that broke the camel's back was when the "supervisor" repeatedly told me to pull the power plugs on all of my networking equipment, then plug them back in. (I was going for broke, and allowed them to connect directly to my cable modem, which was possible because after I got too much 'tude I told the "supervisor to go fornicate with himself and hung up my VoIP phone, he called back on my cell.) This jerk refused to accept a simple "OK" as confirmation that I had just done what he had just told me to do, and made me start all over again.

In the end the femtocell finally worked (it had network connectivity the entire time, so all of that BS was for naught), both plugged directly into my one and only cable modem, and after I put it back on my firewall, so that I could SSH into my home computers.

I can tolerate clueless people working in technology and failing. I will not tolerate anyone who fails and blames their failures on me. The customer is always right.

Sprint, you're fired.

It would make a difference to me. I don't do videos, music, movies so I probably wouldn't notice any censoring from the entertainment industry - (it still sucks, tho)

Censoring news and comments re current events just to toady to get special favors from business or the government would be totally insane. Same thing as prosecuting whistleblowers. Abuse of power is no concern of ours according to some. Keep the masses in ignorance.

Here is my rant for the day:
Yesterday we had one of those meetings at work that add more work to my job, and seriously reinforced how I need a new one, just wish companies were hiring here!! It was a really kinda funny in a really bad way...the meeting included not only the group I work in, but another, very outspoken group...all being trained by my supervisor...but the training was for everyone on a new program he developed...but never consulted the people who actually do the job before implementing it....and there are some serious concerns about the "reality" ....which is something he apparently (and verbally said) he does not care about...only that the new program is in place And he gets credit for developing it....cool...now let's go make it work-it goes live Monday....

Doing call ahead seating and being told it would be about 45 minutes and getting here to find out its another 45 minutes from when you get there.

People from North Jersey!

I kid, I'm from there originally.

Seriously though. You know what just. IRRITATES me?

People down here, use the term Baby Daddy a lot. Which is fine, I suppose. But. WHY if you are still with the person?

YEAH ME AND MY BABY DADDY ARE GOING HERE

You mean your husband/boyfriend.

>.< It just drives me up a wall.

No offense to anyone who does use that terminology, it just drives ME nuts personally.

When you buy something off ebay that is "100% functional", when it comes it isn't and the seller acts like you're being too picky because not all the lights work, etc.

I'm so frustrated with Comcast's DVR issues right now I could scream. I've spent an annoying percentage of the last two days trying to solve a problem with the program listings not loading more than four or five hours ahead (which does make setting recordings more than a few hours in advance impossible). I've even swapped out the box, plus dealt with about five different techs via chat in efforts to sort this mess out. Last resort before I call the competition is to arrange a service tech visit.

Ever drive a car with a VATS system (1992 Pontiac Bonneville) and had it assume you're trying to steal your own car? my system, and only in high heat/humidity (such as 95 or 100 F) will do that--it will refuse to turn over and display the 'SECURITY' light for up to ten minutes, during this time you cannot start the vehicle. three or four times later (which = to 30 minutes plus) it will start normally.

People who come into my devices section and post "please come develop for my phone. I have nothing to offer in return, i just figured that this thing was going to port it's own roms. Since that isn't happening, i would like to make you spend YOUR money on this phone because I'M not satisfied with MINE. Thanks"

Smokers. They still blow it around and it stinks and burns my eyes even out doors can't avoid them sometimes. It must be getting expensive because my brother quit saying he could save a lot of money.

It is expensive. I'm on two months without a smoke, almost three. Smokers are being pushed out and away from everything. It is hard to be a smoker these days. There is hardly a place they can go to smoke in peace where they can sit and relax, let alone enjoy a bite to eat or drink with it.
I hear your pain though. I can't go anywhere without the smell and site tempting me, but it isn't my world alone.
