Worst day (Thursday) off-program (>600 calories) since I started, by far, by a factor of at least 2!
Didn't feel up to much of a workout, either. Did 20 minutes on the treadmill. Back, legs, shoulder, and neck all ached.
Verizon remained true to this form, as well.
* first in bloatware
* first in raising prices
* last in problem resolution
* not most clueless, however (that's the province of Comcast)
Can't blame Verizon (nor Comcast), however, for my performance. Tomorrow will be a better day -- for me, if not for those clowns!
Lesson: anyone that trusts a comm company is just not paying attention. How do they get away with it? Because they can. The same way the banks do. Power may not corrupt, but it sure does allow corruption to go unchecked.
* Verizon is our cell phone service provider.
* Comcast is our Internet broadband ISP
* Dish is our HD TV service provider
* Fairpoint is our land-lines telephone provider (we need this because MDW Beth is a clinical manager of the NICU -- Newborn Intensive Care Unit), and the power goes out here, a lot, and cellphone service is spotty, to say the least
* VOIP -- Voice Over IP (Internet Protocol -- the base protocol of the Internet, and what allows it to be so powerful, flexible, resilient). VOIP allows telephone calls to be sent over the Internet in "real time".
In our case, it allows the cell phones in my house to communicate with Verizon's
central office switches via Comcasts's IP broadband service, thus bypassing the weak links to the cell towers in my area.
Verizon is guessing that Comcast has blocked VOIP out of my house thus rendering our cellphones fairly useless. They have their crack team working the issue. My past experience is that they must be taking crack; otherwise, their performance is inexplicable.
