    Contracts And Cable... What Fun Stuff
    by Janis Kracht, 1:261/38, janis@filegate.net
    
    A few weeks ago our contract with TWCable was about to expire so I
    set up a meeting with the sales department.  My previous account
    hadn't expired by any means, I still had probably 2 or 3 weeks
    until that would have happened.  I was taking care of it before
    something stupid happened, if you know what I mean.  :)
    
    We have a business account because we need to run servers here
    related to our work.  We also use TWCable for TV and telephone
    service (also business class)...  we're supposedly getting a great
    price with that bundle - ha :)
    
    I should have known something was wonky with the "new contract"
    when we suddenly lost great channels like the SyFy channel (OK,
    maybe that's an exaggeration to call it 'great' ).  I was
    assured that we'd have all the services as with the initial
    contract, but it obviously wasn't so.
    
    "Oh", the sales rep said on a subsequent call, "we dropped those
    'extra' channels from the package you were signed up for, so now
    you need to sign up for an additional package to get that set of
    channels.  That will only cost you another 10bux."
    
    I groaned, and said 'just do it...' geez.. meanwhile the sales rep
    is going on about how much faster our connection will be now at
    50Mbps as opposed to the 30 we had..  "sure", I said..
    
    OK, I figured it's done, I don't have to worry about this for the
    next 3 years..  until email from my server started bouncing at
    Gmail..
    
    I called the tech dept. at TWCable today to find out if the reverse
    dns had been removed "for some reason"...  I remembered back 3
    years ago when we first set this account up what I had to go
    through with the tech dept.  to get them to get the reverse dns set
    up so I could send mail from my own server, and it wasn't pretty
    .
    
    Turns out when I had TWCable set up this 'new' contract they had
    essentially dumped "everything" from the previous contract (even
    though it hadn't even expired yet) and like the tv channels we'd
    selected that suddenly disappeared, the reverse dns was gone.
    
    So now in about 12-24hrs. that will be fixed.  What slimes.  
    
    When my contract next expires in three years the "new" contract
    will result in this tabula rasa state, but I'll be ready.

     Advertisement: The most truthful part of a newspaper.
    
    The following are ads from a real-life newspaper which appeared four
    days in a row - the last three hopelessly trying to correct the first
    day's mistake.
      
    MONDAY: For sale: R.D. Jones has one sewing machine for sale. Phone
    948-0707 after 7 P.M..  and ask for Mrs.  Kelly who lives with him
    cheap.
     
    TUESDAY: Notice: We regret having erred in R.D. Jones' ad
    yesterday.  It should have read "One sewing machine for sale cheap. 
    Phone 948-0707 and ask for Mrs.  Kelly, who lives with him after 7
    P.M."
      
    WEDNESDAY: Notice: R.D. Jones has informed us that he has received
    several annoying telephone calls because of the error we made in
    the classified ad.  The ad stands correct as follows: "For sale --
    R.D.  Jones has one sewing machine for sale.  Cheap.  Phone
    948-0707 after 7 P.M.  and ask for Mrs.  Kelly who loves with him."
      
    THURSDAY: Notice: I, R.D. Jones, have no sewing machine for sale. I
    smashed it.  Don't call 948-0707 as I have had the phone
    disconnected.  I have not been carrying on with Mrs.  Kelly.  Until
    yesterday she was my housekeeper but she quit!

    INFO:
    
    Fidogazette is published by Janis Kracht, Editor.  
    
    If you have an idea for a column or a series of articles, 
    please contact me :)
    
    New! 
    Mailing-List subscriptions via 
          http://www.filegate.net/sub.html
    
    but of course you can always link into your uplink and use 
    Tick or a tick compatible program.
    
    Where to Send Your Articles
    
    Unlike most editors, I surely do not  mind running my mouth
    when there is a sparsity of articles for the 'zine.  I'd
    MUCH rather you sent in material...  lacking that, I will
    fill these issues with my meanderings and thoughts and
    hopefully we will grow into something of consequence here
    :)
    
    Write an article!
    
    If you WOULD like to submit an article, feel free to drop
    your article off at:
    
    Email attach to address: janis @ filegate.net
     
    Fidonet attach: Janis Kracht at 1:261/38
     Modem: 607-200-4076 
     Binkp: 1:261/100 filegate.net port 24555 
     telnet mailer: filegate.net
    
    If you are using routed Fidonet mail, don't send articles as routed 
    attaches.  They will fail somewhere along the path before getting here.
    Send them instead direct to filegate.net.
       
    Give it a title, sign your name and network address if you have
    one and send it along!
    
    Don't worry about the format, I can take anything you send me
    and mutilate it further as you can see above.  Linux is nice
    that way (g).  Spell checking your own work will help though
    (something I'm typically guilty of (g)).
     
    To send reviews or recipes to the Food section, email or
    netmail Janis as above.
    
    Email address for submissions to Dr.Debug:
      To send a question to Dr. Debug, email a question to:
          drdebug @  filegate.net 
      or post in the fidogazette echo!  :)
    
    To send a listing to the FidoGazette bbslist, email your 
    listing to:
      bbslist @ filegate.net 
    or post it in the fidogazette echo!
