Growing, Not Dying

Welcome to my insights, ponderings, and experiences. Hopefully they will enrich you in some small way, or at least make you laugh.

Sign of the Times

Today our new Dish Network arrived. Apparently there is something very tricky about where our house sits or something. It took the poor instal guy literally all day to get it in. That's right folks, from 9:30 am until 5 pm. The equipment went in fairly quickly, just a couple hours. The rest of the time was tuning it in, getting the remotes to work, ect.

So, after JW spending nearly 8 hours solid setting it up we enjoyed about 2 hours of viewing this evening. Then we decided to actually use the recording feature for which we got the system in the first place. Somewhere along the course it was discovered our second remote wasn't working. So, Jim has spent 2.5 hours on the phone with tech support now, and is still going at it. How sad is this? We are getting tech support to watch TV.

What a great blog. It's always good to find one that isn't just a spam dump. Mine probably won't interest you since it's mostly about a role-playing online game but... you're welcome to visit if you want. :-)

Great site. Well-written. Tastefully arranged! Glad I found ya!
