Re: “First Slice 8/1/14: Ebola patient to receive treatment at Emory Hospital, some Americans fear pandemic

This whole Ebola thing has highlighted just how ridiculously ignorant the average person is regarding modern medicine and the systems involved therein.

Thank God I never drive downtown. Why would you when you can take MARTA and not have to deal with traffic, aggressive cops and parking fees?

Re: “Spring Street viaduct to close in September, prepare for chaos

So what exactly is the alternative? Not repair the bridge? What are people bitching about?

^^^ This is either the most ironically (and poorly) placed (not to mention rather inept) spam ever, or a really great piece of understated satire. I don't think it's satire.

Re: “The best of AccessNorthGa.com

Problem: HP Printer not connecting to my laptop.

I had an issue while connecting my 2 year old HP printer to my brother's laptop that I had borrowed for starting my own business. I used a quick google search to fix the problem but that did not help me.

I then decided to get professional help to solve my problem. After having received many quotations from various companies, i decided to go ahead with Online Tech Repair (www.onlinetechrepairs.com).

Reasons I chose them over the others:
1) They were extremely friendly and patient with me during my initial discussions and responded promptly to my request.
2) Their prices were extremely reasonable.
3) They were ready and willing to walk me through the entire process step by step and were on call with me till i got it fixed.
My Experience
I loved the entire friendly conversation that took place with them. They understood my needs clearly and acted upon the solution immediately. Being a technical noob, i sometimes find it difficult to communicate with tech support teams. It was a very different experience with the guys at Online Tech Repairs. You can check out their website www.onlinetechrepairs.com or call them on 1-914-613-3786.
Would definitely recommend this service to anyone who needs help fixing their computers.
Thanks a ton guys. Great Job....!!

Re: “First Slice 7/31/14: West Nile Virus found along Beltline, near other Atlanta parks

Yeah but the new location is crap and the secrecy of the deal smelled worse than crap. All three new stadiums are mired by poor planning and corruption.

Re: “Spring Street viaduct to close in September, prepare for chaos

Oh I know they can just take away a lane of Peachtree and make it pay to play like they did with 85. It's not like our tax dollars didn't already pay for it or anything like that. Why should people who can afford have to sit like the rest of us? :{

Re: “Spring Street viaduct to close in September, prepare for chaos

I like how the referenced GDOT map still has MLK continuing west past COP. Someone should tell them that they demolished that bridge a few months back, only a year after they rebuilt it. Good job guys! Take out a major western artery and northern one at the same time. What other surprises does Arthur Blank have for us? Lemme guess? Kasim Reed will be in charge of the committee to sell the toll rights for the new viaduct?

Re: “Spring Street viaduct to close in September, prepare for chaos

are they going to incorporate the proposed connections from alabama and wall street? if not, they'll have to rebuild it again once the MMPT starts construction.

The coastline has changed throughout the millennia. You really think we can stop that with drastic action that will have minimal effect?

@acer Please call/e-mail/write Commissioner Mendoza from Atlanta DPW and tell him that. It is in the city's comprehensive transportation plan, which they seem to have a hard time following.

Re: “Spring Street viaduct to close in September, prepare for chaos

Someone needs to tell the private buses I see lumbering over that bridge everyday that they should not be using it.

Re: “Spring Street viaduct to close in September, prepare for chaos

Someone didn't bother to read the difference between a viaduct and bridge...

TL;DR Viaduct's are much more intensive.

Re: “Spring Street viaduct to close in September, prepare for chaos

Can we please leave two way traffic along Centennial Olympic Park Drive permanently?!? There is zero reason for COP to be one-way through downtown now that the interstate exit has been reconfigured to Williams Street. It is currently a two way street on both ends (Techwood Drive / Walker Street).

More than two years to tear down and rebuild a bridge?
