FiOS Upgrade Slowing Metallman Down

Hey there friends. I haven't had a chance to do much in posting. I'm extremely disappointed that I will not have a Week 8 Heavy Metal Rankings due to my DSL connection being down at home. We are upgrading to FiOS connection and that should have been installed last weekend, but because the installers never showed up, it wasn't done. When I called Verizon the next morning complaining that my DSL was down, they explained that because we were meant to be on the FiOS network, all our info was transferred and the DSL is no longer active. Damn! The guy looked up the availability for rescheduling and there were no slots available until Nov. 15th. NO INTERNET AT HOME UNTIL NOV. 15TH!!!! I told the guy that that date is not going to work for me and I asked to speak to a manager. He did some telephone magic and before I know it, a spot opened up for Nov. 1st, which is this Saturday. I took it, considering that it's only a week... but what a week it has been.

We're some young people (at least I like to this so). We're in our mid-twenties, have a home, got ourselves a great family, and basically live off of gadgets and gizmos so to be without the mother of all tech, the internet, has been a bit of a strain. lol Our phones have internet access so we've been getting our fix there but it's just not the same.

So here I am, at work, trying to squeeze in a quick post to let my friends know what's going on. I've heard good things of this FiOS connection. Allegedly, it's the way of the future. I'll let you guys know how it stacks up compared to cable and DSL lines. Until then, later!
