My Qwest for Speed!

The Qwest for speed is back! Smiley

Ever since my pretty Pinky laptop died on me last weekend, I am back to using my old PC. Yes it's still working fine and all that but it's just not the same as using the more powerful sleek and speedy Pinky. Of course I am bummed out especially when it comes to dropping EC. I don't know if it's just my PC or it's my sometimes unreliable ISP that's causing me grief but for the past two days, I was unable to drop in my usual speedy efficient manner.


It takes ages to load all blogs, and even my Outlook is acting up; freezing whenever it feels like it; returning to normal only after an extremely long pause. I am unaware of any service disruptions in terms of my Internet connection so I can't really put the entire blame on Screamyx. What I do know is that my connection seems extra sucky tonight and using my older PC does not seem to help the situation much. Smiley

I see many of my blogger friends moving to other ISPs and naturally I am enticed. Wouldn't you be too when you hear stories about them being able to drop 1200 ECs easily after the switch? Anyway, I hear Qwest high speed Internet is a preferred choice amongst users. Besides Qwest phone service, which offers you Unlimited Local Phone Calling Plans, the internet package is a steal, starting at only $19.90 a month! This promotional package is however only available for first-time new subscribers.

As a freelance copywriter and blogger working from home, the need for speed is always topmost priority. Every aspect of my freelancing ways and lifestyle requires fast reliable connection, which is why I always place emphasis on speedy internet. No fuss, no muss just super speedy surfing online!

That image is too funny indeed! Between those emoticons and now that "banging your head" pic is comical although I know you haven't had the pleasant of times lately. Maybe you should have used the Quiet Riot "Bang Your Head" theme for MM this week! Or use it next week! That pic just made me think of that song! LOL! ;) :)
