|House update: ma'am, we're here to deliver the world
||[May. 11th, 2004|07:52 pm]
Many trucks arrived today, delivering many heavy objects and taking away large amounts of money. Our refrigerator, freezer, washer, dryer, and bed came in. Late in the afternoon a guy from a local artificial-turf company came to give us a quote on doing part or all of the yard. We were unimpressed: scratch that off the list. It was a pretty good day, albeit a very expensive one.|
In the give-me-a-break category... The reason why all of this stuff was scheduled for Tuesday was that willowisp was going to be there anyway. ADT was going to come out in the afternoon to set up the alarm. Well, they didn't show up. willowisp called to find out what was going on and found out that the local ADT contractor is none other than Prewire. They had no record whatsoever of our appointment. We are now rescheduled for Thursday.
Some things you don't have to comment on, you just report 'em as is.

Can you request another contractor? Or go with a different alarm company?
I'd really look for someone else, if it was me. That's just too ironic for words...
BTW, what's the schedule for getting things like DSL, etc...?
DSL? Probably in a year or two when Qwest rolls it out to this area. There's a long-shot chance that it's possible now, but I won't know that until sometime next week... and in any event I'd have to wait out the end of my cable-modem term of service, which I think runs through August. Maybe next August. I'll have to check.
Phone service gets switched over early next week (possibly Saturday). Our home number won't change. Cable service gets switched over on the 17th. All the utilities and such are already set up.
