One Day at a Time....

One Day at a Time with AT&T

Step 1 - Admit you are powerless over your Cable company. What used to be a mere pittance for broadband computer connection has continued to rise until it has become a money -sucking monster.

Step 2 - Come to believe that a power greater than Comcast can restore you to your sanity.

Step 3 - Make a decision to turn your life and your computer over to the care of AT&T, as you understand the phone company.

Step 4 - Make a searching and fearless inventory of your home and count all the computers, including laptops, disregarding old computers and computer parts in the attic.

Step 5 - Admit to AT&T, yourself, and Comcast that you are stupid for paying more money for Cable just to keep your free virus protection, an unused home page, and eight email addresses, seven of which you’ve never used.

Step 6 - Be entirely ready to have AT&T remove your cable connection.

Step 7 - Humbly ask the phone company to reconnect you with DSL.

Step 8 - Make a list of all the email contacts you will have to notify and be willing to forget about half of them.

Step 9 - Make a direct wired connection to your computer whenever possible, except when to do so involves a remote computer or laptop -- for those you need to go wireless.

Step 10 - Continue to take inventory of computers and printers and to work endless hours with AT&T support people to get your computer up and running.

Step 11 - Seek through power and meditation to forget your aggravation with AT&T – as you understood them – praying for an understanding of why you cannot connect to the Internet, regardless of what you do.

Step 12 - Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of three endless days of being on the phone with support techs, frayed nerves, no sleep, lost time, and nothing working right, try to carry the message to others.

Step 13 - Crawl under the desk, find the old computer cable and plug yourself in. Kiss your homepage. Check email, update your website, and check out your favorite newsgroups. 

Sooner or later your new ISP will get their act together. Until then, remember...

Relapse is a part of recovery.
