New internet service came to our home earlier this week. Thanks Charter for the 65 Mbps speeds. It is wonderful. The installation went without a hitch and the service tech was efficient and helpful.
On the downside there are two issues with Charter.
- The modem they provide doesn’t work with our Apple Airport Extreme. #FAIL
This was one of the main reasons for getting our own service, was not to have to rely on the business available wi-fi. Now I need to find out how to get hold of Charter Customer Service and have them address the issue.
- Charter Terms and Conditions.
We signed up for the service three weeks ago, and waited the 18 days for our install date. All was well, Charter took our money and we signed and agreed to all of the terms and conditions. However we continue to get internet pop up screens which interfere with the browsing experience. Again, a Charter #FAIL.
This will be a continuing story, so check back as I’ll update as any progress is made.
So a retailer that I’ve been wanting to purchase a product from, finally has the item back in stock. Of course, its the Christmas sale season, and it’s not on sale.
Now to look for something else to buy.
Attention Rosetta Stone marketing/sales department. Sending me hourly emails on what a great deal I’m missing, doesn’t enroll me in wanting to buy your product.
The ads the google is placing at the top of one of my gmail areas are in no way related to anything I’m looking for. Neither are they anything related. Massive #FAIL Google.
Here’s a video of the issue I’m having here on the blog.
Yes, it’s come to that age when we’re seeking senior housing. Both of us being 60+ and given our age related aches and pains along with other issues, this only makes sense.
We’ve found a great resource called A Place For Mom. Having made contact with this resource we have begun the process of getting on a waiting list and dealing with all of the other bureaucratic issues surrounding such a move.
Which once again brings me to the photo in this post. You might remember that I posted back in December of 2012, about the facility and their pet policy. To add some additional information, we’ve actively been looking into this facility due to it’s proximity to our current apartment. I’ve made several email contacts to the facility for information, all of which have gone unanswered. In calling the facility we were told to make use of the facility web site. When I related that I’ve made requests via the web site that have gone unanswered, I was again told to use the web site. Both of us on separate occasions have visited the facility to get further information. We’ve been ignored at the locked front entrance in spite of making eye contact with those in the leasing office.
In a conversation with an individual who resides in another Senior Housing facility here in Wheat Ridge, I was told of problems with the Town Center Apartments related to him by other Seniors residing there.
So in our continued search for new digs, the Wheat Ridge Town Center Apartments has been crossed off our list of potential residences.
