From Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, an old movie starring Gary Cooper.
"John Cedar: Suppose you just answer, Miss Jane. Now, will you tell the court what everybody at home thinks of Longfellow Deeds?
Jane Faulkner: They think he's pixilated.
Amy Faulkner: Oh, yes, pixilated.
Judge May: He's what?
John Cedar: What was that you said he was?
Jane Faulkner: Pixilated.
John Cedar: Now that's rather a strange word to us, Miss Jane. Can you tell the court exactly what it means?
Board member: Perhaps I can explain, Your Honor. The word "pixilated" is an early American expression derived from the word "pixies," meaning elves. They would say the pixies had got him. As we nowadays would say, a man is "barmy."
All this as a prelude to our Charter Cable tv image: Pixelated! The images on the screen are caused to be enlarged so far that the viewer sees the individual pixels that form the image, the enlargement having reached the point at which no further detail can be resolved.
Here's what our tv looks like when we try to watch Fox Sports Midwest and the Cardinals game.
All this after Charter put us to some effort when they required new boxes for each tv or we'd get nothing. And we'll be paying for this new system and still getting nothing.
It's very frustrating, not to mention time consuming to have to sit on the phone and answer a mechanical voice tell us to go through a series of tests which we have already done.
I may Tweet charter today, it's often the fastest way to get a real answer. This stuff is more than Barmy!
