A little while sgo, a guy called from TWC to ask if anyone feom TWC has ever reached out to me. "No," I said. So he apologizes for that and said he's a representative of TWC who will stay on my case until it's resolved permanently. He gave me his number to call if I needed to. It has a Madison area code. He kept repeating that he will stay with the case until it's resolved. I told him I had a tech coming out tomorrow. "Good," he said. "I'll have him report directly to me. Whatever the problem is, we're going to fix it. I promise you that."
I thanked and thanked him.
You would not believe the war that I"ve been having with Spectrum/TWC. First off, I don't exist when either system is checked for me. Then why do I have to pay? Or can I pay with non-evistent money?
I don't want to read too much into this. I've been raped and lied to by TWC so many times before.
We'll see, we'll see.

A technician arrived this morning and started performing all sorts of tests. Pretty soon his supervisor showed up. The technician then gave a long laundry list of everything that is wrong with my computer (and tablet) and said most of it couldn't be corrected, but he would try. That's when I stopped them and threw them out. The service guy kept saying it was impossible for Windows XP to receive 70 Mbps. I told him I received it for months, Until Spectrum took over. They set up all the reasons they're gonna fail and then they want to go at it. Not on my computer. Would you let a mechanic work on your car if he first gave you a long list of why he's going to fail? I don't know what I'm going to do at this point.
Btw, there's 2 Spectrums out there. There's the one that merged with Charter and TWC, and there's the one that stands alone. Go to Spectrum.com. Call one of the numbers and ask a question about your account. You'll be told that they don't have your account and you should call the old Time Warner Cable number. When you call them, they insist that they're Spectrum.
Would you let a guy work on your car if he couldn't even find it? What horseshit.
Interestingly, my download speed has been in the 70's since they left.

I called TWC this afternoon because I've been having trouble with my email. The guy fixed it almost instantly. I told him about my troubles with Spectrum. He said, "Did they tell you your operating system is too old?" "Yeah," I said. He said he has XP running on a computer at home at it's doing just fine. More smoke and mirrors from the elite. They will do everything but fix the problem. Offers to maybe fix the problem but more likely to do more damage don't count.
Good Morning everyone I hope you had enjoyed your week. I have been busy this week getting things ready to move my daughter into another dorm she has a job on campus for the summer and Monday we have to get her moved again. Here are your questions.
1) Do you like seeing the flowers and the trees with flowers starting to bloom in the Spring?
2) Do you like to hear the different birds singing as they migrate in the Spring?
3) What is your favorite flower to look for in the Spring?
4) What is your favorite bird to look for in the Spring?
Hello, peoples! How are you? It looks ike it will be another beautiful day out there, with a chance of rain. The sun is beating down now and I love the warmth. Spring is bursting out all over. This is a wonderful time of year.
Again, Junior and Señor Zanza want to clean up the yard, but they can't because it's too wet. The mud that they dragged into the house on their shoes last time was a mess. We can wait. The farmers can't. It's going to be a tough year for them. Heck, every year is tough for a farmer. You must really love the land in order to be a good farmer.
And I love you, my dear readers. Together we can ride the Titanic that the city has become. Mayor Liar is leaving us. WTF? Isn't the captain supposed to go down with the ship? He has stirred up some hornets' nests and thrown around our money to his friends like crazy. The corruption in Racine city government is thorough. I say we just change the lock on the mayor's office door and set about to get rid of his friends from our government. Many have already left, taking their golden parachutes with them. I hope that all the rest drop dead. These bastards stole millions of dollars from us, and nothing will ever be done about it. Racine must have the word "stupid" emblazoned on every map. C'mon down and grab all the gold that you can carry. Become friends with Mayor Liar and make much, much more.
I'm sure I sound like a broken record with my anti-Dickert rants. But the man has stolen not only millions of our dollars, he has destroyed morale at City Hall, where they haven't seen a raise in years. But newcomers who are friends of Mayor Liar start to see an income flow in little time.
So, just leave already, Mayor Liar. We can't afford to wait around wondering when you'll abscond with the rest of our money. My dearest hope for Mayor Liar is that someone takes him out. He has made a laughingstock of Racine and simply cannot tell the truth. Please, please, Mr. Mayor Liar leave your office NOW. He must enjoy keeping us out of the loop while making outrageous claims. Machinery Row and the proposed arena will finish us off. We'll be paying for Dickert's thievery for decades. A pig with a tie - that's Mayor Liar.
Well, thank you dears for reading my blog today. The more readers, the merrier. I love you all.
Enjoy he weather, Irregulars. Soon we'l be bitching about how hot it is.

"New investors were on the verge of pumping $100 million into Guaranty
Bank, a prospect that should have stopped federal regulators from
shutting the Glendale-based institution last week, an investment banker
who was working with the investors said Monday.
"Steven D. Hovde,
chief executive of Chicago-based Hovde Group, said the U.S. Office of
the Comptroller of the Currency 'pulled the rug out' from Guaranty Bank
when it suddenly closed it down Friday night.
is widely known in Wisconsin and elsewhere for helping banks raise
capital, said the feds knew that a recapitalization of about $100
million was in the works and might have been completed by the end of
June. The money could have restored the bank's capital to levels
acceptable to regulators.
"In addition, Hovde said, Guaranty was
improving financially and had cleaned up many of the problems stemming
from loans that started going bad during the Great Recession.
is no reason that bank should have been grabbed this past Friday, no
reason at all,' Hovde said, calling it 'a horrendous case of government
overreach plain and simple.'"
First off, it was a hell of a drive to see a physician. Just off of Hwy.50 and I-94 in Kenosha. Second, he rarely met my eyes, usually talking to a computer screen and typing. He would constantly pick at his beard and even pick his nose. Third or fourth, his "therapy" for me was to constantly repeat that I"m a nice guy and I should get out more. Fifth (and this is a big one), he knew nothing of alcoholism Every time we met, he asked me if I had cravings for booze. I'd try to explain to him that I've been sober for 24 years and the only time I thought of booze was when he brought it up.
The only reason I got together with this guy is that my old shrink recommended him. Turns out she's never met him; only heard about him. I'll look around for another shrink but I don't expect much. I called Ascension the other day looking for a shrink.They told me that their shrinks no longer accept Medicare and supplemental insurance. Bullshit. The shrinks get paid the same no matter what. Obviously, the business office has decided to take advantage of the severe shortage of shrinks in Racine. Bastards. Making money off of the suffering of others.
I can get my primary care doctor to prescribe all of the psych meds for me. We've done this before. How much you wanna bet that with the proper credentials, I could pretend to be a shrink? Hell, I'm beginning to think I could fake being a nephrologist, too. He's now taking orders from me because he can't figure it out on his own. Last time I was there, he said, "I'll see you in six months." He looked at me and I was shaking my head. "Three months?' he asked. "OK," I said. I don't particularly want to see him, but I want test results.
If you have a good doctor, hang onto him or her as long as you can. I suspect the majority of MDs are pigs. If I croak, it's no big deal to my doctors because they have plenty of other patients. When I asked my nephrologist if he had told his other patients on Nexium about my experience, he said, "No, I'm not going to mess with someone's drug schedule if they're doing alright. You're the first patient I've had with this Nexium problem." Or maybe I'm the thousandth. My numbers dropped., and I suggested Nexium was at fault. He didn't do shit. So who knows how many patients of his have croaked when switching from Nexium might have helped. Nexium probably gives the kidney doctors a nice vacation in the Caribbean for keeping thier mouths shut.
I trust no MDs. None. If you start asking questions and they start retreating, you probably have a liar/loser for an MD. I've had plenty.
