Blogs I’ve been reading instead of posting

Here’s a list of the blogs I’ve been following and/or reading backwards lately (and should probably be adding to my link list). Partake and enjoy!

Hooked on Heat - Blog about modern Indian cooking with food porn and recipes
Bike Man Dan - Dan takes his bike with him where ever he goes and documents his adventures
Wandering Why - This couple took a year and a half off of work to travel the world
Breathe Dream Go - Mariellen took off to India to achieve her dream after the devastating loss of her parents
Matt Logelin - Life and death in the span of 27 hours. Seriously if you’re prone to crying, don’t read this at work. Link is to the first-timer’s page.

Fail

Ugh, fail, and I didn’t even know it. Sorry about the damn video in my last post. I am perpetually muted and I tested the video in IE, and it didn’t auto-play. But, apparently, it still autoplays in Firefox. So if any of you suffered I’M SORRY. I removed the embedded media and put a link there because I don’t feel like fixing it right now.

T-Mobile Update

Just as an update…  We are still unable to make outgoing phone calls.  And T-Mobile continues to be inaccessible and completely inattentive.  Thanks guys!

We DID end up changing our Comcast modem — instead of having the combo internet/phone modem, we now have a straight cable modem without phone capability.   At this point, it’s likely the only thing keeping us from using our phone like normal people is Comcast, a la a couple of blocked ports.  Dominic at the @home customer (cough) support said that he would work with Comcast on the issue, but it has now been over a week and a half and we have not heard anything from him (or any of his team members for that matter).  I have left them voicemails, since you cannot actually reach a person when you call advanced technical care, but no one will return my call.

I would, you know, call Comcast myself, but I can’t make outgoing phone calls at home and I have no mobile reception while in the house.  Standing outside talking to Comcast would make testing rather difficult.  Considering the fact that I’ve spent hours on the phone with T-Mobile regarding the issue, I can only hope they will help me out a little here…

I’m probably hoping too hard.
