Thank Fuck It's Friday [Part 14]


The weekend starts here which means I've managed to survive yet another week on the internet without my broadband connection, no thanks to B-fucking-T who have now been royally fucked the fuck off,  but the dongle thing is just about hanging on in there. Although I'm getting rather pissed off with having to re-boot the bastard thing once an hour or so. Ah well, beggars can't be choosers, eh.

So, as usual, red wine will be taken in industrial quantities while I kick back and reflect on a fairly typical shit stick of a week. Have a great weekend yourselves, wherever you happen to be on the internet ....

PS. I'd give a hat tip to the sad twat that spent hours and hours putting this map together in the basement of his mother's house but can't find out who the fuck is responsible for it. Perhaps the 'billy no mates geek' just doesn't want us to know ;-)

Well thats bleak. I've had a particularly good week myself. I've put out about twenty fires a work that the rabble couldn't deal with, I've finished the attic conversion, I've fixed yet another oil leak on the old banger and I haven't soiled myself once.
Now I'm enjoying a cool Guinness and a big cigar.

I've dealt with  BT since Push button 'B' and Party Lines but I fucked them off when they refused to let me continue  my internet access when I stopped paying for their landline that I didn't need; then they flogged off BT Mobile to 02 so now the only time I connect to them is when I use a payphone to make a lengthy freefone call.

Havea good weekend all.

I used to work on the BT Broadband technical help desk, until they sent it to India.  I was shifted across to the Broadband Voice / BT Communicator help desk and I and my colleagues were regularly amused by calls from Indian THD asking us how they should do the jobs they'd taken from us.  Naturally we told them, without being rude of course.

I still use BT Broadband, and occasionally I have problems but I never call THD.  Some time ago I had a problem logging in to the server and I knew that it was a BT problem (I carried out all the relevant diagnostic procedures - pings and traceroute etc).  I did call BT and the Indian robot I spoke to asked me to log in to a web site I used to send people to when they could not log in to manage their Communicator accounts.  I explained that she was of no use to me and hung up, set on cancelling my account if the problem was still apparent in the morning.  

BT THD are absolutely bloody useless and I pity those poor sods who are dependent upon them.  Unfortunately The Mrs Gruff has locked us into another twelve month contract, even though we'd decided to shift to another ISP (that's what comes of allowing women to organise things) but in seventh months time I'll be free again.

You may wish to consider telling BT to stick their broadband up their corporate arse, if you are out of your twelve months'.
