Our house ISN'T a #Brighthouse, due to email woes forcing us to be incommunicado, where is Wile E.Coyote when ya need him?

Hi every furry and human!

If you aren't on Facebook, (or if you are but don't subscribe to our updates,  that is another issue unto itself lol), then you don't know that I have been without email since 7am Wednesday, June 11th...as I am typing away, it is now AFTER 12 NOON, Thursday, June 12th. If any of you have Road Runner email (a service offered by Brighthouse Networks who is now owned by Time Warner Cable who in my opinion is the source of the problem, but I digress), you are more than likely experiencing the same issue. This isn't my first rodeo with my lack of feeling the love for Time Warner, you can read about that here.

After more than 24 hours had passed, Brighthouse Networks FINALLY posted THIS on our home page:

"We are experiencing issues with the Mail system. We are working quickly to troubleshoot and restore access to your email. We thank you for your patience and apologize for the inconvenience."


AFTER MORE  THAN 24 HOURS
WITHOUT EMAIL
 THEY FINALLY ADDRESS THE ISSUE?

SERIOUSLY?




Why is being without email a problem?

Well aside from a myriad of other reasons, the main one being that I WORK FROM HOME,  brainiac that I am,  I follow 99.9% of your blogs via email. Yep, I know, many of you have often informed me about the error of my ways, and stubborn cuss that I am, I vehemently ignored the warnings. For those of you that I follow via email, that means that I can't read your blogs until my email is restored and I have pawed my way through what is sure to be well over 1000 emails (I kid you not).

Some of you I can read on Bloglovin' but also, on Bloglovin' for some reason, I can't comment on some of your blogs (not all, but some.) I am doing my best to visit as many of you as I can.

Also, I am supposed to post a book review/give-away for tomorrow and until email is restored, I can't. I keep my notes, etc. in a file........where? You guessed it........MY EMAIL FILES.

So, I'm not deliberately being incommunicado, it is just one of the many fun-filled side points of being without email.

A plus? I am finally doing laundry that was long overdue to be done!

Enjoy the silence while you can my furiends........and one final thought for Brighthouse and Time Warner....DO NOT go and mess with the TV........

  1. I hope your email comes back soon! One of the reasons we don't have cable internet here is because our area is serviced by... wait for it... Time Warner!

  5. I feel your pain. We have RR email too and it's been a PITA for weeks. Have you tried mail2web.com? I've been able to access the mail there when I can't from rr.com.

    1. Hi Rene! OMG RR has been having outages once per month since last Fall but NEVER this long! I have never heard of mail2web.com....THANK YOU!!! Heading over there to check it out NOW!!!

      Delete
    2. Rene thank you! I am there now! I can at least read and delete mail...can't access my files to do the book review but this is great because I can at least read email and get rid of some of this before it comes back up! I have over 700 emails! Thank you!

  6. Can you set up an alternative with Yahoo or Gmail? Hope things get resolved soon.

    1. I have gmail attached to the blog, the problem is, the blog posts and anyone who would reach me would go to my RR email......it is on all of my business cards too :(

    1. thank you!!!! Thankfully the internet is fine! It's just the email!

  8. I would also be beside myself...I go nuts when the power goes out for a few hours, but at least then I can still get my email on my phone!
    Well, when we are without our technology, we do finally get other things like laundry done!
    Good luck, I hope it gets fixed soon. IMO some of these companies are getting too big for their own good, and they can't even handle it.
    PS...I also follow my blogs by email, so you're not alone there. :)

    1. lol me too!!!! Ohhh you are so right about these companies. Trust me, when it is up they will hear from me. I am definitely asking to be credited for this (I was advised to do so by a rep I spoke to yesterday on the phone). Yay so I am not the ONLY one who prefers following via email :)

    1. Yeah someone on Facebook asked if Feedly was owned by Time Warner lol!!!! I wonder? Hope your situation is resolved too!

  11. We're with TWC too. We use Road Runner through TWC. We've noticed access through the internet is extremely slow, but the emails come through Outlook easily. We've never been happy with TWC but have little option. Good luck getting your email back.

    1. I don't use Outlook. I use Google Chrome. Will keep that in mind for the future! It came back about an hour ago! Wooo hooo!

  12. We have Brighthouse here, too, and boy are we glad we aren't using Roadrunner's email! We hope it comes back for you soon. Sounds like a lot of people must be really steamed at them right about now.

    1. I actually LOVE Brighthouse! They were fine until Time Warner took over. Guess what? I think it is back! It came back about an hour ago and so far so good! I think they were afraid of Cody's claws :)

    There's just something about Internet/Email/Cable/TV providers... And that "something" is, well.... only HBO words could describe.

  15. Jeez. We typed out our comment and clicked "publish". Guess what? Our internet died at that VERY MOMENT. Took about 15 minutes to revive it and now we're back. And our comment has been eaten. :(
    We hope you won't have too long more to wait for your email service to be back.

    ReplyDelete
  16. From reading the comments it sounds like you have your email again. We just know it was Cody's threats that made it work. We has Charter and mama thought it was the worst in the world but sounds like Time Warner makes it look good. Hope it's back for good.

    1. Hi guys! Yep! It came back about 4 hrs ago and I have been spending the entire night catching up with email! Funny you said that about Cody, I thought the same thing! xoxo

      Delete
  17. Ugh what a pain! My email gets on my nerves a lot, but definitely nothing as bad as this... I hate when I get behind on my emails. It just makes you feel so behind. I was out all day today so I did get behind a little bit. Speaking of emails, I got an email for PEOPLE Pets magazine and there was a picture of a cat in there that looked JUST like Cody. Had to do a double take!

    ReplyDelete
  18. :Yup, that is one super reason to do lots of screaming. That would drive our Person over the edge too. Not that Caren has gone over the edge but I bet she is ready. We are crossing all of our paws that it all comes back really soon. Take care.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Well, I am glad you finally got it back. My head would have been spinning as well!
    As I was telling you on fb, we lost internet for a total of one hour, and I was already contemplating the end of my blogging career because, well...how on earth will I post with no internet? How on earth will I check my email and visit all my pals blogs with no internet....it was the end of the world as I knew it, all in one hour! But....do not fret, internet came back, and you got your email back, so I suppose the world is saved ......for now!
    Damn you time warner! LOL

      Delete
  20. Oh no!!! That is terrible. We too follow everyone by email, so we can see how losing access to your email would make visiting everyone's blogs difficult. We hope your email problems get fixed soon! I can't imagine how frustrating that must be. :(

    ReplyDelete
  21. Ut oh! Do they know who they're messin' with in taking away your email service even for an HOUR???? Good grief!!! What a pain in the tushie. Want me to sign a petition? Write my Congressman? Gimme the word and I'll do it. Seriously though, Mom would go INSANE without email. We hope they get that fixed ASAP!

    Hugs, Sammy

  23. It's the modern equivalent to a postal strike! The upside is life is a lot less stressful ... For a while!! Hope it comes back soon!, xxxxx

  24. Oh the rescue site cam I watch just switched to Time Warner and been having nothing but; problems. It goes down all the time now. Hope they fix your email. I have had issues with yahoo email so I found something else. They would never help either. I didn't have it for a week once. It was awful.

  25. This sucks but ya know it is Mercury in Retrograde and full moon and Friday the 13th. Godaddy sucks at my email, some emails disappear for no reason. TGIF and hang in there!

  26. Oh boy! Any internet or email issues and my mom goes off the deep end. She works from home too. Don't feel bad, though, about following blogs by email, we do too. It is just so easy to read and delete in our inbox rather than starting a whole different system to find new posts. We love posts per email...Mom is old, maybe that is why? Hope your situation improves there!

    1. Oh Emma your Mom and I have sooooo much in common! I sooo went off the deep end! (I STILL am!) I have a 2nd book to review Monday that I have to try and finish reading tonight (the book review for yesterday has been postponed).........but I am in email trying to catch up now and see what I have missed. Your Mom's reasoning for subscribing to blogs via email is EXACTLY the same as mine! I am "old" too lol! I am older than your Mom!!! It is back now.....praying it STAYS back!

  30. Then you probably didn't see John Oliver do his incomparable rant against corporate incursions into net neutrality. Time Warner apparently is the worst of the worst. Dang. So very sorry. There is nothing quite like this kind of . . . what. I can't even. Pawpats!!

  32. It's when the electronics go down that we realize how dependant we are on them. When Hurricane Sandy blew through New Jersey, we had to do without electronics, the Web, electricity, hot water etc. It makes you appreciate what you have when you have it. That said, Sandy wasn't preventable. You would think your email provider would be a little more on the ball.
