Week one coming to an end

Well, week one is about in the books. I'm heading in a little later today because we are traveling late into the evening and they don't need use until later this morning. We are about 3.5 days behind. Mostly due to system issues and conflicts with the training department. Training double booked people in classes.

So far this isn't going too well, but things did start shaping up yesterday. We were able to actually get some of the training of the new employees done and all the access seems to be available.

With Ktreva's grandfather dieing I was sure that I was going to have to end up leaving down here and miss more training time that would set me back even further. I'm not sure why, but they scheduled his memorial on August 2nd, so I'm not going to miss any time.

I'm still working to get this wrapped up in time for me to be able to come back for the Galesburg Heritage festival re-enactment I participate in. I at least want to get home for the weekend.

The good news is that I'm flying home tonight to spend the weekend with the family. I really miss Ktreva and the boys. It'll be good to see them again.

Please? :)"

Sorry to kill a topic by posting wedding dresses about it ad nauseum, but my God(!), I can't believe that wedding dress  there was a time I preferred to use Qwest - that is, until Qwest DSL started giving me some problems. After abandoning Cox for two years because of the crappy  wedding gowns service they gave me wedding gown  in three different locales, the prodigal son returns - and it is great to be back.

Apparently two years makes discount wedding dresses  all the difference. Cox has completely revamped their customer service. Sure, they have some snarky automated bitch cheap wedding dresses  when you call tech support, but - and this is a tip for all of you Googlers out there who can't find simple wedding dresses  this - if you're calling Cox tech support and want to bypass the automated system, just say informal wedding dresses  "Technician". Apparently, that's the secret word and Cox's automated doorman lets you pass through the pearly gates to,bridal gowns  surprisingly, competent tech support and dude's who really don't mind too much when you have  bridal dresses a problem.

I had to call Cox twice yesterday, and unlike the horrible time I had with Qwest, they actually fixed my problems both times. It's almost as if they know what they're doing.

And as for speed; I had bridesmaid dresses to always assumed DSL was comparable stricly because with DSL, you're not sharing your network with anyone. I was wrong. Despite what other sites may tell you, cable broadband is way faster than DSL. Clocking my mother of the bride dresses download times, it's about 400% faster with Cox than it was with my DSL. I'm not exaggerating.

Of course, I also purchased their top tier bandwidth speed; at the basic package, it may be more plus size wedding dresses comparable. However, for a web designer, 400% faster means a lot more work is done in less time. And for a guy who actively loves to stream media, holy shit.

Anyway, I'm done now. I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't a guy who only complains, but also compliments. Kudos Cox - ya won me over.
