    Disappointment at new service.

    Oh!
    So you are all over here now.
    I thought you'd all gone home, or that it was my fault for rebuilding my C-drive over the holydays.


    <UL><LI>I want to lodge a complaint.[/list]I have experienced problems accessing the new lounge on account of the speed.
    I'm here thanks to my KVM switch which allows me to flip over to the 695MHz 320MB Big Beige Boat anchor and can, at those speeds, actually see the Lounge, instead of seeing a mousetrail-like stream of photons whizz by, too fast for these geriatric eyes.

    <UL><LI>I want to lodge another complaint.[/list]Up until now I have been able to grab a coffee, or turn an egg, in the kitchen three rooms away during the morning. Now I don't get as far as pushing my wheeled-chair back from the workbench. Am I supposed to exist on bottled water from now on?

    <UL><LI>I want to lodge yet another complaint.[/list]I have grown accustomed to taking a two-hour break from 6pm to 8pm, both EST, and using that time to consume food, read books, play with the cat etc.
    My weight is now down to 165 pounds, the Brentwood branch of the Etobicoke Public Library is dunning me for overdues, and the cat is locked in the third bedroom until he stops complaining.

    All in all, I see this move to a new server as disruptive of my work, eat and sleep patterns.
    It goes on like this, I may as well get a real job, travel by public transit, and adopt the slogan m├ętro, boulot, dodo.

    Oh Chris!

    Do be careful. If all of your issues are addressed, you will have nothing to complain about, Then what will you do? <img src=/S/duck.gif border=0 alt=duck width=23 height=23>

    Also note that "Complaints Department is closed" for remodeling for the extent of the remodel <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>
    One will need to go to Temporary Complaint Department to file or even to ask about a complaint.

    You've had a tough day! Maybe you ought to go get a tub of ice cream and chill out! <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Since in the US 'tub' is the equivalent of the UK 'bath' *, that's a lot of ice-cream! Visions of Cleopatra and bathing in asses' milk...

    But a bath full of ice-cream would be sufficient to chill out...

    I suspect there is a law somewhere that says the bath full of ice cream is going to melt if you don't add a refrigeration unit.

    At least that would keep Chris quiet for an hour or two!

    This is the "tub" of ice cream that I had in mind but the image of a bath tub of ice cream is amusing and would be lots indeed!
