Figured I do a single blog post to tell you what is on my mind today, maybe I’ll expand them out in the future.

For the past few months, since the financial bubble, I have been listening to Bloomberg Radio. Very depressing, to say the least.

In any event, first I hear Citigroup is laying off 50,000 workers. I think to myself, this is not going to be a good day. The market then skids the 8200 levels after it opens.

Then I see the SEC is charging Blogger and Dallas Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban with insider trading related to sales of Mamma.com.

Some correction in the markets, I think. But sad news, why why why….

Then I read that the top executives at Goldman do something right, they say, no bonuses for us in 2008.

More correction in the markets.

Now, the markets are rising a bit, now only down about 50 points for the day.

During this time, I spend an hour on the phone with Verizon about them not really signing me up for the FiOS triple play. So I am being billed $80 too much every month. This is the fourth time I called them about this. Each time, they said they got me on the plan this time and they have not. So I sign up again. This time, I am in a one year plan, for $94 per month. Let’s see if they give me the plan and the credits I am suppose to get.

The good news, is they tell me I can now upgrade to the multi-room DVR option, since originally they did not support HD TVs. So I am hoping this actually works when I get home. It should be activated remotely.

Oh, got my new MacBook Pro up and running Saturday night. I used migration assistant, that took about 3 hours to run and when the computer popped on, it worked like my old, just faster. A few things did not transfer over, such as my printers and VPN info, but so far, no hiccups yet…

I think that is about it for today at 1ish.

    I’ve found that having them email me what they’ve discussed helps when they continue to screw up. Sprint tried to put me in collections until I sent them an email from one of their employees that stated I owed nothing! 🙂 Never had another problem…
