At the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority conference this week, Georgia Senator David Perdue, (R), said we need to pray for our President. He then stated that we need to specifically pray a certain way. Well, in his own words: I think we’re called to pray for our country, for our leaders, and […]
Corporations are about maximizing profit. I get that. For all of its brilliant “Think different” marketing, Apple is, in fact, no different. Years ago I watched a documentary about the first MacIntosh. Several people who were on the team that put the original machine together were interviewed. One of the guys, I forget his name, spoke […]
A week ago, I jokingly posted this photo of Steve and me as we traveled to Winnipeg for a yet-to-be disclosed reason. I joked that, since Trump appears to be the presumptive Republican party presidential nominee, we were avoiding the mad rush to Canada. But, have you noticed, I’ve stopped posting much about politics these […]
Comcast appears desperate to know who my new internet service provider is. I blogged about their weird phone call in which they all but demanded I tell them. I had to tell them that information was none of their business. It felt so good! Now, Comcast is sending me emails.1 But, their last email was the […]
Shortly after moving to Atlanta, I learned that Atlanta is a “test market”1 and therefore our Comcast internet had a 300GB monthly cap. Additional fees applied for overages. I called their corporate office2. I told their agent that I flat out refused to have a 300GB data use limit, that no one told us of […]
I suppose we become spoiled bit by bit, without really being aware of the process. When we repeatedly experience something marvelous, and are even acutely aware of how extraordinary the experiences are, we still seem somewhat unaware that our expectations for this new, higher level of perfection are also growing. I recently had this expectation […]
I’ve mentioned before that when I lived in Atlanta 8 years ago, I drove like the proverbial bat: insanely fast. However, I never tailgated, weaved in and out of traffic, nor did I text or email while driving. I may have squeezed through a light or a few. Driving in Atlanta today is like driving […]
Pages 5.6.1 lacks this fundamental, basic feature. Pages technical support didn’t even know this. What??!! Seriously??!! The feature is available in Pages ’09. Their recommended solution: export the document out of Pages 5.6.1 in the old version’s format and number the pages and print them in that version.
You assholes are getting what’s coming to you! And you more than deserve it! You and your absurd 300GB bandwidth limit! Your horrific phone system. Your wretched customer abuse masquerading as support. Frankly, I hope Brian L. Roberts, CEO of Comcast, loses his job, that all of his good employees go to work for Google […]
Today, on Halloween, I receive a survey from the corporate-owned cemetery asking me to rate my “overall cemetery experience” from last month when we buried my mother there. “How many positive recommendations have you given for this cemetery?” Are you serious?! How insensitive and crude! Jeeze!
