in my new room at the imperial palace and a little annoyed but not due to poker

when i checked out of my room at circus, i went right over to the IP and checked in and was surprised to get friday free also instead of just wed and thurs so im good til saturday now..

and i went to osheas instead of going to my room first, played a little poker and was up $154 when i left because the game broke. one of the players wanted to borrow my phone charger and go elsewhere to play, so we walked over to ceasers. he showed me how to take a pic with my iphone camera too and upload it to facebook. (its of him). while i was at ceasers i continued to win about $400 more, ran into both Ian and miamicane from avp who were playing $2-5 and Ian sat at my table a while waiting for his seat there. and i pointed out Vince to him, who was dealing in the room whod got hired to help deal the tourney. new rolls about $13,900

and now for whats annoying me___ i cannot get my verizon access modem to work for NOTHING, (and on a side note because i use windows vista-i cannot get yahoo email set as my default email instead of windows live so i can click on an email address and have it bring up yahoo mail) So i tried calling the verizon number my access manager shows, and when i called i got a message that department was CLOSED and to call back during business hours. so i said the hell with it and decided to pay $9.95 for a days internet access since i have the money.

so when i logged on wirelessly the choices that looked like they were controlled by the IP were "guest internet access" and "imperial wifi". so it looked like guest internet access had more bars, so i logged in there, and paid $9.95 via cc. and i STILL couldnt get online so i called the front desk. and they said theyd connect me to a tech. well the tech said that i need to be logged into the imperial wifi network. so i called back both the operator and the front desk and they said that it was the same and right company, and that it was the ONLY company they have they do business with. which of course is a Lie. anyway they connected me back to that companys phone, so i just paid $7.99 again over the phone to connect. and i finally got online. once i did i brought up my online bank statement and found the name of "guest internet access" a totally different company in vancouver BC called hispeed corp or something like that. i wrote down their phone to call and complain during business hours to try and get a refund. but i know they wont. how is anyone staying at the IP who sees both those internet access options supposed to know which one is the correct one to click on? guest internet access is used by almost every casino in vegas so i just assumed it was the same thing and what i should click. really would like advice about how to get this company to refund me since i never got online with them, only the other company. and i blame the operator who wouldnt give me any number for tech support except the other company and claim thats the ONLY company when of course anyone staying at the IP can verify.

and now since i lost all my money on 5dimes lately, i need to now learn how to login to bodog and deposit. and if anyone can help with setting up yahoo as default tell me what to do, i googled for help and it claims no one using windows vista can have yahoo as their default email.

  3. Hey Tony,

    Computer/Internet problems are a bitch. I was having trouble yesterday with my Vulkano unit (a piece of gear that streams a US TV signal from my condo in Vegas to my house in London). Spent 2 hours on the phone with tech support and it's working now.

    Last night was my final night in Vegas ... thought I might run into you at the Nugget, where I played my last session (a $550 profit in 1-2 NL). Sorry I didn't get a chance to say goodbye ... see you next time I'm in town.

    Good luck, and stay off them machines!

    David

  4. Don't get on bodog, it leaves the U.S. market at the end of the year. Why even bother with online sites?

    Btw, the Imperial Palace sucks just as bad as this blog!!!

    Why aren't you using the f'n forum software that what's his face tried helping you out with?

  5. Tony I would look forward to reading your blog, it was epic on AVP and AVN, But your blog has jumped the shark. I remember if I missed your blog for 4 or 5 days I would have to read 12 to 14 pages.

  7. I have to agree with all of the constructive criticisms on this format Tony. You have to start thinking seriously about some other options for your blog Tony.

  12. Tony:

    At least take the time to respond to the 3 or 4 questions you get each update. Of course, with the format the way it is, I imagine it makes it hard to respond.

    Because this format sucks.

    p.s. - this format SUCKS
