Dodging the Roadkill: Layered Up To Throttle Up

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Obviously old man winter has reared his ugly head in many parts of the country, so the days I get to ride are far and few between. 

Today was one of those days.

I haven’t had “black beauty” out for a good run in over a week.  On that day, the temps were in the low to mid fifties, but I was still trying to shake a bad cold and just didn’t feel it.  

This week, we’ve had rain, ice and some snow flurries, so the best I could do was fire up the “beast” and take it for a quick spin around the neighborhood.  Not much, but it felt good.

Tennessee Division of Consumer AffairsNashville, TN – Robocalls are computer-generated recorded messages used to communicate with the masses via telephone. A favorite of telemarketers, robocall technology is also used by thieves and scam artists to lure residents into traps.

“When I’m speaking to groups across the state, audience members inevitably ask about robocalls,” said Director Gary Cordell of the Tennessee Division of Consumer Affairs. “I always tell them that if you pick up the phone and a recorded voice tries to sell you something – hang up immediately!” «Read the rest of this article»

CDE launches Lightband techonology: Welcome to the future!

 

CDE’s New FTTH sign DesignAt first glance it a was step back in time; vintage cars including a bright blue Camaro just begging to be taken for a ride, and members of the Roxy Theater’s production of Grease holding open doors at the end of a long red carpet.

In reality, there is a certain synchronicity to merging images of an era that saw the origination of television with the reality of fiber-optics “lightning express” [in this case, Lightband] into the future of telecommunications. It is the kind of creative, futuristic thinking that fueled 1950s imaginations in Disney’s Tomorrowland, that erupted and amazed in the futuristic exhibits at World Fairs. Many of us are old enough to have read about “the future” of technology in books by authors like Ray Bradbury or Isaac Asimov. Yesterday’s imaginings turned reality today.

Tuesday evening, the Clarksville Department of Electricity stepped into the future with the unveiling of their new logo, sign, branding and price information for their new Fiber to the Home (FTTH) services that place Clarksville, Tennessee on the cutting edge — nationwide. CDE Lightband is the culmination of years of planning and design, an informational campaign, and legalities including an endorsement by the voters of Clarksville on the referendum question that allowed this far-reaching development to occur. «Read the rest of this article»

Charter Sucks!

 

Cable wireIt’s not often that I vent on a business — I know how hard it can be in this competitive world to satisfy ever more demanding customers. But I am about over Charter Communications. For over a month now, we have had missing channels and bad reception. We made an appointment and they never showed up, which doesn’t leave you feeling particularly good about having wasted a day to be there for them. Nor were they particularly apologetic about not showing up.

And every time you try to get a response from them, you are back to square one: you have to navigate a phone menu that resembles chinese water torture more than anything else. If and when you do get a human being, it’s a whole new world — you have to explain all over again what the problem is. And they will want you to make yet another appointment. «Read the rest of this article»
