Healthcare.gov, i.e., ‘Obamacare’ Website — 2017 — STILL A Frigging Disaster.

I can’t tell you how frustrated, angry and crushed I am.

Since Friday, December 1, 2017, I have spent over 5 hours — including 3 phone calls that laster over 3 hours — trying to get DAMN coverage for 2018. I am willing to pay whatever. Just don’t care anymore. I just want this frigging system to stop torturing me and SOME of the CROOKS who provide telephone support to stop lying to me outright.

Yes, there are some OUTSTANDING and very caring people that you can sometimes get at their Call Center.

Well this morning I, alas, to my misfortune and cost, got an outright, lying-cheating bastard. It was a man, and by his accent, the way he talked and his vocabulary I will just say that he was not Asian, Hispanic or Caucasian. He CONNED me for 1 hour and 20 minutes. He would not let me be logged at the same time as him. After 80 minutes he told me that he got me the coverage — both health and dental. Told me the names of the plans and monthly premiums. Then he hung up. I immediately logged on. HE HAD LIED. He had lied through his f***ing, bloody teeth. He had duped me. He had NOT got me coverage. My application was left UNFINISHED.

I had to call again. This time got a LOVELY lady called ‘Sherri’. She was wonderful. I was on the line with her for an hour.

But, she admitted that she could NOT get me coverage.

Nothing wrong with my application or eligibility. System ERRORS. She had 3 people check my application. The system goes all the way to allowing me to pick plans … then CRASHES.

I hate this system.

Sri Lankan Bowler Lahiru Gamage Wouldn’t Be Out Of Breath Bowling In Delhi If He Lost 20 Pounds.

by Anura Guruge

I have been meaning to comment on this for quite few months.

Quite a few of the Sri Lankan cricket team carry too much weight around their belly — classic Dahl belly.

Being even 10 pounds overweight makes a difference when playing cricket at the Test level. You are on the field, when fielding, for 6 – 7 hours.

Gamage is the worst — and he is supposedly a fast bowler (though I think he is more medium pace, than anything else).

Him getting sick in Delhi was understandable. He is too fat. Yes, I, given that I too am 20 lbs overweight, should not be complaining, BUT I am nearly 65-years old and no longer playing cricket. [Though to be fair I was fat when I played cricket.]

Anywho …

Gamage needs to go on a low-carb diet.

Garmin Is Recommending A ‘Soft Reset’ For Unresponsive (Frozen) Vivoactive 3 Trackers.

Click to ENLARGE and read here.

Got this on my Twitter account — with Garmin responding to my “Vivoactive 3 DIED” post from last Friday, December 1, 2017.

I went and checked the Vivoactive 3 “Owner’s Manual“. It is in their, on Page 19, under “Troubleshooting“. See below. Though it is called “Restarting” and NOT “Soft Reset”. I never got to that. I panicked.
