She'll probably see him at least once a month, definitely more often than that in the beginning, and they'll talk every time he signs a new client (he'll be doing sales, she's a manager who oversees implementation). They won't be side by side every day but they'll definitely be in contact a lot. It's a small company.
I just have to take everything day by day like I've been doing. None of us are drama-mongers.
Were you wanting to cut him out of your life completely? It was an amicable break up, everyone can be friends, no one wants drama, I understand wounds might still be a little fresh, but I don't really see the big deal. Again, time will make things easier.

I remember lowes had a nice one, but I am pretty sure it was over 36"
Of course you can always pull the wheels off, cut the legs to the length you want and then reinstall the wheels.

If she would just introduce her friend to me, all this would go away.

Also... she'd be getting a guy's opinion on the crap she's putting up with from Dickhead. I think that will help.
HOpefully, something over the holidays will make this relationship implode and she'll be single by the time you're ready to celebrate NYE!

No, we wanted to stay friends. You're right.

If you're talking bout the link I sent, there's 2 little kids that want a cat. Dad won't let them have one, but then someohow they come to an agreement that if they get 1,000 likes on facebook, they can have a cat. So mom takes a picture of these 2 little kids holding a sign telling you what I just told you. As of last night, they had over 118,000 likes.

Ha!
Are you implying that a 3some would start? You're a real gutter mind, know that?

Anyone have AT&T U-verse for TV & internet? I'm switching to them from crappy Comcast when I move - I've heard nothing but good things (compared to nothing but negative comments and experiences with Comcast) and it'll be a lot cheaper too. The only downside is that apparently the installation is a bit of a process and might take hours. Yes, hours. But it will be worth it. I'm hoping it won't take TOO long since I only have one TV.

They have to install a satellite dish (att uses direct tv.) Then run all the wires and stuff, so that can take a little time. Installing the internet shouldn't take as long though.

I think ATT discontinued their association with Direct. Isn't this U-verse a plumped up version of cable but through the phone lines?

I do have Dish and I would not trade that for cable or ATT.
You really have to check the fine print for prices on this stuff.

Oh, I miss my U-verse. I used to have it. Then I moved and had to have Comcast.

When I had it years ago, installation took about an hour. Probably depends how much wiring you need.

I miss my U-verse!

I am on the low tech end of things. When I was shopping for the smartphone I looked at Consumer Reports. I know they rated cable service too. It won't help if you don't have a choice but they are very good about explaining what you are getting into

According to my friend at work who has U-verse, they don't use a dish. I think I remember another friend telling me that they use the same cable lines as the cable company (the phone lines would be DSL but isn't that obsolete?).

Everyone has their own preference. I did love U-verse, though.

Here's about their lines: http://www.att.com/u-verse/explore/fiber-tech...

Cool, thanks.

I just talked to my friend who told me they use cable lines, and he said he'd give his left nut to have U-verse again (he moved to a tiny little town with limited options).
