So much wildlife when you leave the city on a shoot!

Celebrity Apprentice: Me

And I finally made it to NBC. 

This means I am famous. 

Autographs available. 

I am changing my cell phone number and my assistant will start running my tumblr.

Thank you NBC for making me the most famous of ever.

Any decent internet in NYC?

I have been struggling with decent internet (shaky downloads. skipping videos, itunes partial downloads, and miserable upload speeds) in NYC for a while now.

Today, after several failed attempts at uploading a relatively small file to youtube, I finally broke.

It took every ounce of humanity to stop myself from throwing the modem across the room. My face is red. Im embarrassed at how frustrated I am. 

I have since ventured to a local cafe, a vietnamese sandwich shop and another cafe to upload this damn file. All have failed as these public wifi spots reset the modem every hour or so.

I feel like it is 1994 and I am patiently waiting for the AOL page to load from the dial-up modem. Delaware doesn’t have this problem. Comcast upload speeds are splendid. Thusly, Delaware > NYC. Can we allow this to happen NYC?

So, in a desperate attempt for an answer, I am begging for help. Can anyone recommend an internet service provider or a location in NYC where the upload limit is decent?

For all the techies out there, I have tried multiple PC’s/MAC’s in several people’s homes and I get the same result. 

I need to get these files to a client. It’s 2012 afterall, let’s get our sh@t together.

Any suggestions NY?

EDIT: I have given up on any hope for this evenings technology journey - I am shifting gears and diving into a culinary adventure. Challenge: to make better Banana Pudding than Magnolia Bakery

*Higher Ground (HG) is a nationally recognized veteran rehabilitation program that combines sports, family and coping therapies to restore and rehabilitate men and women of the armed forces who have been severely wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan.

*The University of Delaware Deltones was founded in 1991 by a group of five University of Delaware students affectionately known as “the origitones.” The group members pride themselves on their smooth tunes and their motto - friends first, singers second - a motto they have lived by for 20 years. They focus their energy towards singing on campus and in the Delaware community, as it is important for them to give back to those who support them. The group consists of five current UD students, seven recent graduates and three recent “alumnitones.”

*Special Olympics Project UNIFY is a national project funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The goal of Project UNIFY is to activate youth around the country in an effort to develop school communities where all young people are agents of change — fostering respect, dignity and advocacy for people with intellectual disabilities by utilizing the programs and initiatives of Special Olympics.

Is anyone familiar with DVD studio Pro? My DVDs refuse to play in DVD players.

Anyone?
