Idiot Control Now

Well, D bought a new computer.

Because he wants to play Diablo.

In his defense, though, our desktop is about 8 years old. I remember getting it in time for Sims 2. It barely runs Sims 3.

Should be here Tuesday.

And our cable has been acting up. We got home yesterday afternoon after being gone for 3 days to find our internet and digital cable were both out. (The non-digital box TVs were okay.) The woman on the phone kept insisting it was our problem because of our router. She was all, "Disconnect the router! I see a router on your system! Your router is the problem!" First of all, this is what they tell us every time it goes out, and every time, it's not the router's fault. Second of all, D disconnected the damn thing and was standing here showing me it was disconnected, and the woman was still insisting it was the problem. Third of all, what the hell does that have to do with the TV being out? She said, "We'll get to the TV! Just unplug the box and reboot it until the time shows!" Well, it didn't reboot. It sat there trying, but nothing happened. It took three hours for us to get service back. Since we weren't home, who knows how long it was actually out.

But yeah, it was the router's fault!

D wrote a scathing email complaining about their customer service and thinks we might switch to an AT&T bundle. He may not be wrong.

It's funny because I was just talking to my friend last night about all the issues we had with Comcast and about their lousy customer service and she was telling me about having the same problems with Verizon. It seems like cable companies generally suck on the customer service department.

I know they have to treat people like idiots because most people are ("My printer won't print.".. "Is it plugged in?".. "Oh."), but honestly, if I'm standing here telling you the damn router is unplugged and you're telling me I'm a liar, then that's just bad service.

I've been having issues with Sims 3, and after doing all the troubleshooting in the manual, went to their forums looking for another solution. People with the same problem as me had posted, and the mods came back with "Check your power supply and make sure your drivers are up to date!" Dudes, seriously? We did all that before coming here. If that's all you've got, then the problem is your buggy-ass game.

From what I hear, Diablo 3 is like the rapture for half the world. Men vanish, leaving only their clothes and their wives.

Yeah, pretty much. I played a little of the first two, and D wants me to play this one, but, eh.
