I'm good with gotten
It's "has gotten" that drives me to distraction. When an item was obtained from a retail store (rather than as a gift, or an item made by its owner), my mother used to use the adjective "boughten". "It's boughten goods." She would never, however, use "Them's boughten botten" (to mean those are Japanese robots purchased as such, not Pi robots made in a garage), because "Them" is ungrammatical.
I have Shaw Internet, but didn't notice a slowdown. I was scanning, so that was a lucky afternoon activity choice. Mrs. Bunch noticed some outage, but not enough to complain to me at the time. Shaw is expensive, but has offered good service. Then they cut facilities (no Usenet, no member pages) but claimed we weren't paying for them anyway. Yeah, right. Going forward, I don't know how this is going to pan out. With vastly fewer employees, they will be unable to offer the same levels of service. They'll be just like their competitors. Yuk, race to the bottom. The one thing Shaw still does have is "Shaw Go", which allows subscribers to connect mobile devices to internet via wi-fi all around town, including at bus stops. Last time our service went down at home, about a year ago, I walked to the nearest bus stop, sat in the shelter protected from the rain, took out a tablet and engaged in online chat with the Shaw rep. Way less noise than a phone support call. Besides, since our phone is Shaw VOIP, the service outage meant that it wasn't working anyway. For the technically-minded, our issue was that the service was marginal due to oxidation, corrosion on parts up in the pole. When Shaw TV Cable went digital, deficiencies were unmasked. Even though we don't subscribe to Cable TV. The technician, to his credit, identified the problem pretty quickly, and it was also repaired soon enough.
I hope you've all got(ten) a down home flavour from this and do not feel the need to downvote me too strenuously. If you do feel the need to downvote, please go ahead, accept my apologies in advance, and may the pasta deity bless you.
