ISPs

My ISP is Comcast, and after years of nosebleed inducing DSL service (which was due to the crappy phone lines in the building I live in, and not my provider or DSL in general) I have to say that I am really happy with the level of service comcast has provided me with so far.

Last night there was a service outage, however, and it told me so when I called their support hotline.

Warning: Flying Out Of Sequence

In case people actually come here to read my blog, I wanted to share the following fact I found out myself recently and wish I had known about.

AT&T decides to bring broadband call center back onshore

Finally.

Even though I have nothing to do with ATT, or need to access their call center, I am somewhat glad that one behemoth of a company decided, for whatever reason, to bring back (part) of their call center.

Hazzah

Hazzah! Back in the days…back in the pirating days (not MP3’s – Gooch). Hazzah was a word coined when drawing swords. Someone would say hazzah! Swords would then be drawn to battle. Kind of like Miles from Celebrity Deathmatch, saying, “Let’s Get It On!”.

Airline Humor

After every flight, Qantas pilots fill out a form, called a "gripe sheet," which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics correct the problems, document their repairs on the form, and then pilots review the gripe sheets before the next flight.

Never let it be said that ground crews lack a sense of humor. Here are some actual maintenance complaints submitted by Qantas' pilots and the solutions recorded by maintenance engineers.

By the way, Quantas is the only major airline that has never had an accident.

(P=The problem logged by the pilot.)
