I've had Time Worthless for about 5 years now. I can count the major
down time on one hand and the tech has been out exactly once. And
you're pissed off at them for what reason?

Either you have a very shaky connection, or you need to learn to help
yourself. Tech support is stupid, but sometimes, they have the
answers to routing questions. My e-mail remains with my original ISP
and it's relayed through TW. My honey's email is relayed through our
ISP to her RR mailbox, so sometimes we need TS to get through the maze
when it burps.

Since you live in NYC, it's unlikely that there is only ONE ISP in
your area. Try Google, or wait, let us do the work for you.
