I am a simple person. Well, on some things I am a simple person.
My Comcast telephone just disconnected any time it wanted - two minutes, one hour; didn't matter. I knew it was in their lines, but three visits for Service and no improvement, I just accepted it. We were just home from the Stroke and I had the Cell phone and much more important things to deal with. When they added HD two years later, more equipment and doubled our price. AT&T was soliciting on the street. They offered same bundle service at the old price we were paying, paid for new wireless telephones, one extra TV. But the big bonus was they gave me personal business cards to the Tech guy and the Sales Rep. And both of them call back within 1/2 hour. Nice benefit.
I don't care about high speed or premium channels. I need for the TVs to work, the phone to not disconnect and to get on-line for maybe two sites -this being one. I do not purchase on-line, pay my bills on-line or surf the Net. So this was perfect. At one year, when our contract was up, I called as I was advised and asked for them to continue at the same price - disability - and not only did they do that, we got some premium channels. Upside to this is there are no commercials on the premium channels - less channel surfing - LOL. I should offer that as a promotion to their Sales office.
So I get a mailing that I can now get McAfee Security free. Who is better than me? Spent half hour last night downloading it, did the scan and then went off to Chat. As I logged on here, get the POP - WHOA - we haven't approved this site. I check I want to go there anyway. Get into Chat and 40 minutes later disconnect. Diagnostics says it is McAfee. Can't log back in. Knowing there were problems here earlier, I Email a fellow caregiver and go to bed. Get home from work today, go to Email, no site did not crash last night. An hour and a half later, computer sharing, 3 reps, finally the site is available.
Now an hour and a half off routine here is disaster. After dinner and a shower for Bruce, I get back on-line and can't get here again. I uninstalled all of the McAfee and finally have my computer back.
I know why McAfee questioned this site. We are not Facebook. There is a very select clientele that comes here. And for my own personal sanity, I need to be here. One would think a company of McAfee's size and their quality, it would be a simple matter of just calling up the site and allowing it for the customer. If I click that I allow the site, one would think that would be enough.
There are some things I wanted to discuss in Chat, blog or topic; I always like to read through the new stuff, help if I can. But after a day like this, just want to vent. Sue said it best last night "computers are great when the work!" Debbie
