Brighthouse Sucks Again

Update: Brighthouse sent out a cable tech and did some work on the lines, I’m currently running more tests to see if that solved the problem.

As usual, Brighthouse has much work to do if they really want to please their Internet customers. Changing and working on network equipment during prime hours (5PM to 10PM) is just wrong in so many ways. I’m not going to keep telling you what I am dealing with but instead I will just post the proof below.

This is a two day graph, between 10AM on April 16th til 10AM on April 17th. The network latency when it is working, is below 20ms for the majority. That is when the packets are not being lost in transit. The red blips on the bottom line are amounts of packet loss.

Here we have a six month graph. Including the data above at the very right, as we put more data into the same size image, you will have to look a little closer to see all the packet loss at the bottom. The time period of this graph is between November 2010 til April 2011.

Update: I have added more graphs below.

So I created a address with the url so my family members could get to a private photo album that they could all post to and such.

I just received an email saying the following:

Dear member,

Our content administrators have suspended your account.

They had the following comments to make regarding the suspension:

no password protected sites

The following redirects have been suspended:

Sort of funny, I searched their terms page, and nowhere can I find any statement of password protected sites…

I mean, I didn’t even realize they would not do a DNS redirection, but instead a web frame redirection displaying a fucking ad on the top unless you close it manually. No thanks, I was not going to use it after that anyway.

At the time of this post, their FAQ page: does not state anything about linking to a password protected site.


Your destination address must not contain pornography, adult, illegal, profane or defamatory content. You must not promote your address using spam or any other illegal means. Your destination site content must be in one of the following languages:

Hm funny, okay, searching the Terms page. Nothing relating to directions to password protected sites. In fact, the only thing searching for password on this page is the following:

6. MODIFICATIONS TO YOUR ACCOUNT. In order to change any of your account information with us, you must use the Account ID and the Password that you opened your account with us through our online application process. Please safeguard your Account ID and Password from any unauthorized use... (blah blah blah)

(blah blah blah)

Next time, morons, check your own pages before you send me an email saying I didn’t follow your NON-EXISTENT RULES.

Took screen shots, sorry they are PNG images, since well, if I copied the text you might think I changed it.

US Intelligence wants their data back

“Are any of these documents missing from your possession?” “Nothing is missing, we want what belongs to us back.”

Wait… You want your digital leaked information..back? Would you like that in a specific format? Should I share it with you via torrent?

Defense Department Press Briefing

I recommend you watch the streaming video, it’s actually funny.

The following information posted by WikiLeaks sums it up: What we didn’t hear from the Pentagon last week: “Killing all those innocent people is bad. Sorry. We will stop that”.

Alright, up front I am not a Apple guy I do not use Mac systems. But this is about tech support not about me.

Recently at work one of the newer executives purchased a mac and wishes to use it on our corporate wireless. No problem bring it by and I will take a look.

After trying to setup the 802.1X authentication and continuously failing, I decided to do what I know and Google search for it. I found out it’s a known issue. The site told me to replace the driver, I did and sadly it did not work. So I had to restore that file.

Called the Mac support number since the owner had support, might as well use it. Yeah, it’s about to get funny.

I give them my name, exec’s name and the serial number, and then I start to describe the problem. As first level support he asks the OS version and passes me over to the wireless support. Talking to the wireless guy he directs me to open the Advanced tab, and remove all networks, then click on 802.1X tab at the top and remove all these. I do, and then he tells me to create a new one, name for the network, SSID, Authentication Type, Encryption, Username and then Password. After I click save he then asks if we use any proxy servers and if we can bypass them.


It’s like if I went to oh say, a vehicle mechanic and said my car will not start. He then says, “Alright, put the key in, turn it to accessory, lights come on?” Yes. “Alright, turn it once more, do you hear clicks from the engine?” Yes. “Alright, don’t crank it, turn on the ass warmer, does it work?” ….What?

Yeah, okay. Your asking if I use any proxy servers, you know services that filter HTTP traffic and allow strict filtering from the inside of a network out to another, like the Internet. But, we have not even connected to the wireless network yet. It’s like having the Ethernet cable in your hand and asking if you have an Internet connection yet.

Suffice it to say, we still did not get 802.1X working on that Macbook Pro. I refuse to use plain WEP on any wireless network let alone an enterprise system. I guess I will tell the executive he can bitch out Mac for adding features that just don’t work… Well, at least on this Mac.
