Rogers Cable Internet Update #39

June 27th, 2004 · No Comments

Service hasn't changed much since the last post. It could be down for an hour or more or so intermittent is almost impossible to do anything. Or it could be good for a couple of hours. All in all extremely useless.

If you are looking for my Mattamy Homes posts you can find them over on theĀ old weblog at http://www.kosmo.com/blogs/TimsBlog/2002/10/21.html#a257. Comments posted from that entry can be found at http://rateyourmusic.com/yaccs/commentsn/blog_id=90000024990_and_blog_entry_id=257. Update (May 7, 2009): The comment system I was using on that old blog went under a while back and I just now got around to […]

Rogers Cable Internet Update #38

June 19th, 2004 · No Comments

Rogers Cable Internet service remained spotty since the last blog post and I received automated calls yesterday and today that they are still working on the problem. Does anyone think it might be time to rip out all of the equipment and lines and put in new stuff? Current ticket number for myself is WSR01252611 […]

Rogers Cable Internet Update #37

June 17th, 2004 · No Comments

Well as expected the Rogers Internet Connection started going flaking just after midnight this morning. It has remained that way since with a good patch somewhere around 3am for about an hour. It is basically unusable and I'm tired of using dial-up for a backup so its off to one of my satellite offices to […]

Do Not Spam List Will Not Work According to FTC

June 16th, 2004 · No Comments

Wow, someone must have a clue there: A government-run “Do Not Spam” registry would only generate more unwanted e-mail because unscrupulous marketers would simply treat it as a source of leads, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission said on Tuesday. (source: Yahoo! News – 'Do Not Spam' List Will Not Work – FTC)

Rogers Cable Internet Update #36

June 15th, 2004 · No Comments

Well, a technician did show up yesterday. Actually a decent and knowledgeable technician (Doug – #6642). He tested the levels on the line and said they are too high and he expected that. The infrastructure provider (the morons Futureway) for this area is pumping out too much signal. He put yet another device to help […]

Rogers Cable Internet Update #35

June 14th, 2004 · No Comments

Connection came back up around 2am this morning and remains up so far. Regular readers are probably getting just as tired of seeing these updates as I am posting them. I can post these only to the Customer Service -> Rogers Cable Internet category and not have them appear on the main page. Let me […]

Rogers Cable Internet Update #34

June 14th, 2004 · No Comments

As one could guess the connection last night was up till about 1:30am today and remained very spotty overnight until 8am this morning when it went completely dead again. It has remained dead every since. Original ticket is still open and apparently they are working on this problem. I certainly believe they are working day […]
