Noobs...I Hate Those Assholes...

...and I hate talking to them.


How does a perfectly good wireless internet connection just bite the dust? I know a little about them, and they just don't go Steve Irwin on your ass. It usually centers on your main modem, which I have, supplied by that stalwart Verizon. OK, tech support call, because I haven't changed any settings. But a few preliminary tests. Can I connect directly to the modem, with the wireless out of play. NO. Ok, so it's gotta be the modem. Reset it. Nope. Ipconfig /reset/renew. Nope. So, a call it is. The good bitch Ann talks me through the same steps I'd just done, just to make SURE. Nothing. So as she's drilling through her list of things to try I connect another ethernet cable from the wireless to the back of the laptop to see if hardwiring works. Bingo, but that makes no sense. If I can hardwire from the wireless I should be able to from the DSL modem. Go through level 3 and 2 technicians. Must be a problem with the Linksys modem. 2 1/2 hours later I gave up and said I'd have our IP guy have a look. Verizon sucks when it comes to tech support. I went through an issue a few weeks ago with their wireless phone section. I wrote about that. I'm leaning toward caveman status. This shit gets tedious after awhile.

ON TOP OF THAT, the dipshits that work out at the gym near the take-out place thought it would be a good idea to run me over as they were leaving their stress-relieving, booty-building let me show you my pecs/boobs workout crap they go through. I hate their asses. I could have gotten a front row parking place, but I parked at the end of the lot. Guess I was fair game. Fuck you prince and princess. It's coming, and it ain't gonna be pretty.

I'm such a freaking non-technical dork. I hit "main modem" and my brain went all catty-wampus.
