Okay, this wasn't on TV, but after my mini Domainer lunch in Ottawa this Sunday with [notify]richard.schreier[/notify] and Ilze:

Guess my invite got lost in the mail? Just kidding, but nice to see domainers getting together

I figure maple knew that and meant it should at least be written somewhere on the truck so people can connect the dots and remember the acronym more easily.

Sure, but did he know that it's...

WELL KNOWN FROM COAST TO COAST LIKE BUTTER ON TOAST!

Exactly *THUMBSUP*

You too have no sense of humor. I clicked on the link and I couldn't resist posting his hilarious self-promotional material.


Another classic:

OUR PRICES ARE TOO LOW TO POST ONLINE

:D
 
Oh I chuckled and believe me that is hard today because I just got a repair bill from my air conditioning guy which put me in a grumpy mood. $5085 to fix my a/c, holy crap.

That said I still chuckled so that was one bright spot.

At that price you better have gotten new evaporator, compressor and condenser hardware. Holy crap.

He replaced the whole outside unit, was about half to fix or twice the price new with a 10 year warranty.

Blew out right in the middle of a heat wave two days ago.

The same thing happened to me and I’m still dealing with it….mine is under warranty though. Have had multiple people come out and each guy tells me something different. I think they’re all trying to avoid honouring warranty.

I had this problem too, the heat pump died while under warranty and then I discovered the real problem.

Warranties are designed to never be paid out. The fine print says you have to have your system serviced yearly to ensure it is in proper working order. Its a fucked up catch-22. You're forced to pay a couple hundred bucks a year for them to stop by, say, yep, it still works and hand you a bill. Then when it does fail, they try to get out of paying every way they can, and if they do pay, you still pay labor and a prorated amount for the parts, so you're screwed either way...

The bottom line is - crap isn't made to last any more. Count on replacing everything sooner than you think... and don't count on any warranties. If you're lucky enough to even get service people to show up, you're probably doing good. Oh, and hope your crap doesn't die on a friday afternoon, cuz it'll cost double to get them out on the weekend...

Sorry I missed you. I was in Ottawa for something else and put this together fairly quickly. Should this happen again, I'll make sure to reach out to you as well. We also might do something at the Montreal WHC office at one point.

I had the same happen, just at the end of the warranty. Our original installer actually took care of it for free, which was great. First of all, his old company (it was a partnership) didn't exist any more, he was on his own now. Secondly, he didn't sell the brand of HVAC units any more that we had. Thirdly he lived quite far away and wasn't really normally servicing our area any more. Fourthly the distributor he had bought the unit from had trouble helping with the diagnostics and getting the parts... As you can imagine, it almost took a year to fix it, but we basically have all new parts in one of two outdoor units.

Now sometimes one of the indoor unit is starting to sound weird, I hope this is not going to get too expensive, as it is no longer under warranty now.

Not sure if he'll do that again :D He had to fight with the distributor too as they continued to charge him and give him the wrong parts etc. Very nice guy though too.

No worries [notify]FM[/notify], I was just kidding. Wouldn't want to be a third-wheel at an intimate gathering between friends. But a WHC event would be great though, i would definitely make the drive for that (Montreal is my favourite city, so any excuse to go is a good excuse :) )

Just saw LoansCanada.ca on a TSN commercial.

Redundant, no?

Always surprised to see how much companies spend on commercials but then won't make the one-time investment that pays back for a lifetime.
