Time Warner is now my former internet provider. I'm Verizon's bitch now. Got a 4G thing b/c Time Warner's outsourced customer service reps apparently didn't know we had a big fucking storm and had no answer re: when service would be back on. Hey, I wasn't looking to download porn, I was trying to get online to help out with work.
You see, my office is located across the street from the construction pit that is the former Ground Zero, the power around there was shut off to avoid electrical fires (caused by the flooding salt water), and no one knows when the power will be turned back on. Anyhow, Verizon is evil, but it's evil that works. I'm online again and will be helping out my co-workers who are doing three times the work because other co-workers have no internet, no phone, and no power (all in New Jersey, by the way).
I have to add that while I got through unscathed, across the street starts the no power zone in Dumbo. I assume the phone service is down too. And a friend who lives in the village has no power, phone, or internet, and we think her cell phone died out. Oi. No one knows when power will be restored to downtown Manhattan. Nor do they know when subways will be able to travel from Brooklyn to Manhattan. It's a big fucking mess.
Hope things are well wherever you are.
