stupid people [Oct. 11th, 2000|04:38 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
i'd like to list the following people that are angering me right now:
  • our landlord
  • the repairman that's supposed to be fixing our sink 35 minutes ago.
  • US West (is now Qwest) for breaking our DSL and not fixing it yet (they have 25 minutes yet... whatever... it won't be fixed today)
  • Erik, for always locking his room on the days when they're supposed to be doing DSL work. Qwest asks me to tell them what the lights on the DSL modem are doing but I can't even get to the modem because it's locked in Erik's room. Grrr. We were going to mount it in the hallway instead of his room but he didn't have an ethernet cable long enough to reach the switch and modem if they were in the hall, so instead of waiting a day to go get one we left it in his room and it's always frickin' locked. I'm just going to flip the circuit breaker on the house to reboot the router at 5pm. (I used to be able to telnet to it to reboot it, but the stupid Qwest people had me clear the NVRAM on it, and I forgot to set the exec and enable passwords before rebooting.... grrr... so now I have to borrow demo's serial-to-ethernet management cable again and set the damn thing like that)
that's my rant. all done.

dude, can't you tell that they're just stalling on you? giving you half-assed "solutions". rebooting won't do shit.. they should be able to fix their own shit, but they CAN'T cause they're a bunch of fucking monkeys. you can tell them that from me.
