My Internet is cactus again.
My maximum download speed over the last three days has been 1.3 mbps. I am paying for 12 and rarely get better than 9. But the service has always been lousy - and I was told before I came here that the Internet was lousy - so I was not expecting much.
I thought I might change providers but the only other one possible in our area is Bright House - which on Google ratings seems to be struggling to get even 1 star.
Most Bright House reviewers say it is the worst service in America - but I could argue with that. I have no idea why it has to be so bad here - but Australia is no better.
But I had a nice online conversation with Conrad at AT & T who apologized a lot for the problems and said that he would send someone to fix it almost immediately. I think Conrad spends a lot of time apologizing.
But there are many other important things to worry about.
Robert De Niro has just appeared in a film called “Dirty Grandpa”. This has been rated by Rotten Tomatoes as one of the worst films of all time - and got a one star rating. The critics consensus was:
“Like a Werther's Original dropped down a sewer drain, Dirty Grandpa represents the careless fumbling of a classic talent that once brought pleasure to millions”.
(I think they mean ‘who’ instead of ‘that’ but I am being picky).
Now I know that they (those Hollywood people!) have to make films like this but what is the name of the Shrieking Puffins is Robert De Niro doing in it?
He was a serious and brilliant actor. Nay - a towering giant of an actor - and for the last 10 years he has been appearing in some rare decent movies - interspersed with gruesome schlock.
Meet the parents? Spare me. Does he need the money?
I would be prepared to contribute to ‘go fund me’ if it would stop him from doing this rubbish.
I mean I used to be ’the man’ and now I spend my time cleaning cat litter and picking up dog poo - but even I would never appear in a film called ‘Dirty Grandpa’.
