Out of the Blue

We have a landline that's been out since Hurricane Sandy, and when speaking with Verizon today they indicated this condition may persist for months, and it sounds like I may be getting a good deal on FiOS as a result. We'll have to see, because I'm still skeptical that the conditions they are trying to work around actually apply in my case, but it will be pretty cool if they do.

Six inches of snow and counting here in MPLS.

Wow! It's supposed to cool off here today, with a chance of flurries, but no real snow.

I'm just glad for the cold weather, and hope it stays as long as possible, to kill as many bugs.

I read that story and remembered about that guy. I thought, "Damn that guy has balls." Then I read at the end of the story after he was released from prison in Russia and returned to Germany how he stabbed a guy and went to jail a second time. Then I thought, "Damn that guy is just crazy."


Yeah, I'd not heard of that until I read the article. Kinda odd...

Maybe he just wants to produce his own gravity field.
Or to see if NASA will fire a probe at him.

Hay guys, GMG has a survey for a single use 35% off.

Done, thank you. Might use that to lock in bioshock at under $40.

Thanks!

Blue, our apartment complex of 5 buildings, ~3000 apartments in South Brooklyn is also w/o VZ service and they are saying the same thing..."months" until service will be restored.
Our maintenance office had to get new phone numbers from another provider to handle calls from residents.
I'm surprised there's no more public outcry about this incompetence. So much noise about State Island power problems, but nothing about VZ.
