Billy, why wont you meet me for lunch if we are close? I'll buy. Bring your partner if you want. Depending on where you are exactly, i probably know the good spots too. I really think ftf helps folks understand each other better. Typing words can never convey the true subtlety/nuances that speech can.

Again, i am completely happy for anyone who likes their current dish, landline, or even bright plaid yellow bell bottoms (well, that last one is a white lie, those things are hideously offensive to my eyes). This is America and Capitalism and the Freedom to Choose! But looking at what Elon has done in such a short period of time(!), what the projected timeline is.....well, i just dont see how the old services can have any future. RIP old guard, you were fun while you lasted. Refusal to see whats coming will get you run over. If i can help you, or anyone, function better and enjoy life more (and save money!!!), then the world is just a little bit better place.

My name is Bill. When someone calls me “Billy” it generally a demeaning term to belittle me. That’s what I see in your posts. Fight fare without the demeaning insults.

Well....Bill, i sure dont mean to offend you in the least. God Forbid. But maybe you should look again at that post of mine that you quoted and note how i also poked fun at my own self by signing off as 'champy".

He knows this well. He's just an A$$. He takes pride in it and rolls in the mud just as happy as a pig in shinola. If no one quotes him I won't have to see any more of his drivel.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

CFerguson is intentionally being offensive. This is not the first time. Unfortunately, it probably won't be the last time. Civility in this society is dying. I actually exchanged PM's with him about it in a prior thread. He said something about "retaliation" and told me he was "glad the police didn't feel like I did." When I responded that I didn't think the police believed in retaliation, he never opened my PM. To tell you the truth, his PM's to me didn't make a whole lot of sense.

LOL. Again. Name calling? Hello Pot, meet Mr Kettle.
The only reason Billy and i go at it is that he attacked me on these boards some time back for no reason. I actually thought he was posting while drunk or confusing me with someone (tho i have no knowledge of his drinking habits). If you cant take it, dont dish it out and certainly dont go crying to mommy. I treat people like they have treated me- works both ways.

Heres some more info pertinent to the thread for those that want to learn instead of complain. Always read the comments at this site as they usually have pretty good input on the subject.

edited to add: also pls note that i offered to buy Bill and his partner lunch because i thought he was near me at the time. Turned me down flat saying it would never happen. Some people just want to hang onto the hate, i guess.

It didn't start that way. Only one poster caused it to go sideways.

And like anything satellite, cloud cover and precipitation will affect reception. But in areas without access alternatives, it's better than nothing, albeit expensive.
The only folks who believe this are the cable company ad-writers.
I've had Dish for 22 years now. Never once had an outage for weather, clouds, snow, or rain. There used to be a 20 minute outage twice a year for solar interference, but that has gone away now.
We had Dish and then DIRECTV and both were regularly affected by thunderstorms etc. Jumped at the chance for a fiber TV/Internet service when it became available and no more signal interruptions.
