de-magnatize me, please


the mac computer that my friend gave me just about a year ago when my 2 year old – $1600 computer died, has just about completed it’s life in this world. although i’m not a doctor,  i would give it another 2 weeks to live.

i do have a notebook with very little memory and storage capacity for use in emergencies, and at least it gets me online – except when it doesn’t.  in this case, it’s the service, not the notebook which is the problem.  my connection speed is so unbearably slow it actually hurts my brain to check my e-mail.  i called time warner cable on monday to remedy the situation.  after all of the usual button pushing, confirming the nature of the problem (to assure i would be directed to the right department), my account number, phone number, name, address and health history, a woman got on the line and made me verbally repeat same. she then proceeded to tell me she would transfer me to the right department.

it came as no surprise that i was put on hold for 9 minutes, being that the right department had to be located somewhere in the himalayas.  when the man with a heavy indian accent answered the phone, he asked me to repeat all of the information i had already twice offered.  i was expecting this and therefore able to keep my blood pressure at bay – that is until i understood that  my  accent was too heavy for him to comprehend my words correctly.  eventually he preformed a speed test (www.speedtest.net) on my connection  to make sure it met the minimum speed of 30.  the results came in at 17.   after a total of 30 minutes on the phone with time warner cable, he informed me i had a problem.  he then offered to set an appointment for a tech to come to my place on saturday.  that was on monday.  it is now friday and my connection speed is 11.

my phone, generously given to me by another friend when my last iphone died may, or may not, be ok.   i think it’s the service, not actually the phone, that makes it unbearable to have a conversation.  the  crackling and “underwater” sound effects almost always cause the conversation to be cut short, as it’s just too painful.

although i do not have cable tv, i used to get channels 2 – 12.  recently, they mysteriously vanished – along with my camera battery charger.  this was within days of the death of my ipod.

i am sure that i am somehow magnetized and electromagnetic frequencies are unable to perform in my presence.  today i will use the computer at the public library to investigate if there is some kind of exorcism for  this condition.

missing notes!


if you follow my posts regularly, you probably know about my freakish “electronic disorder”.  if not, you can read about it  here & here

just this week i blew out 2 light bulbs, which were both replaced less than 2 months ago, my tv remote decided to stop working for no apparent reason and the batteries in the dvd remote completely corroded. i can only get internet service in one small spot in my apartment – unless of course it’s raining or even just extremely humid, in which case i cannot connect at all.  i’m actually grateful to have tv / internet at all since i canceled all services with time warner cable on april 12th due to my current financial circumstances.  the cable guy felt sorry for me so he left me with hook up to the basic channels 2 – 13 (minus channel 12 for some reason).  i hook on to the one internet network in the building that isn’t locked and wake up in fear each day that the person who unknowingly shares it with me will move.  all of that, i can live with – but now my notes have vanished.

i have an ipad with a ‘notes app’ that syncs with the notes on my phone.  i use the note pad regularly to record everything.  it’s the record of my life.  this morning i opened my ipad notes and all pages were blank.  no notes. nada.  i rushed to my phone hoping for a back-up copy and found only blank pages there as well.

i’m wondering about the message here . . .
