I Can't Believe It's True

Something historic has happened at the Scully household. It is bigger than sliced bread, bigger than the abolishment of slavery and even bigger than the first black president of the United States. Brace yourself for some incredible news. Are you ready? Prepare yourself, make sure you are sitting down for this. Take a deep breath....... We have finally ditched the dial-up connection!!! We have gotten a real live Internet connection!! I will let that soak in for a second.....
I wrote this blog post without having to wait for some stupid crap to load. I am so excited for this step into the 21st century. I think I'm getting a little choked up, hold on, there might be some tears.

Okay, I'm alright now. Don't worry, they were happy tears. There are so many possibilities now. I can finally watch videos people post on their blogs. I can read more blog posts and make more comments now that I don't have to wait and wait and wait. I can get XBOX LIVE if I desire. I can watch all that porn I have been missing out on, am I kidding?

It almost didn't happen. Cable Vision came to the house on Monday and was tinkering for hours trying to install it and get it to work. He thought the modem was defective and went out to get a new one. He came back with his supervisor and they finally figured out that Cable Vision isn't the service in the area, Comcast is. What a bunch of morons. So the Comcast guy came yesterday and half the job was already done for him by the Cable Vision guy. Ahh good times.

I asked the cable guy if he ever comes across people that still have dial-up and he said he thought so, then changed his answer to never. I would compare it to still using an abacus. If you are wondering, yes we do have running water. I am going to go bask in the glory of the high speed internet now. HURRAH!!

How do they not know this before they even leave their office? We have Cablevision here and If I tried to call Comcast I'd think they'd say, "sorry we don't handle that area"... Duh!

My husband is an IT guy and some of the computers he fixes are for senior citizens and they have DIAL UP! It drives him nuts trying to download software and using his cell phone to contact diff. tech support numbers for them, etc.
