12-5-13 I Bet You Didn’t Know This

After months of truly lousy connectivity, innumerable phone calls and technician visits I finally bit the bullet on Monday and decided that the internet was going to work in this apartment no matter what it took.  After days of phone calls and technician’s visits and transfers from the call center in India to the call center in ? where the level 3 technicians reside, moving the modem and router about the apartment, pinging, pinging and more pinging I think we finally have internet back up and running and to make it all worthwhile, running much better than it ever has. (Knock on a forests worth of wood). That is by way of saying it may take me a while to catch up with all of your published writing and shooting over the past days.

That has nothing to do with the title, does it? I am about to let you in on a little secret that only some folks in NJ and NY who live near the river know.







The river does not have its own water supply! We, the taxpayers, supply the water. These gentlemen usually only work at night. Must be an emergency…

  2. I know something about that! We had a lot of trouble with losing the wifi at least once a day [at the same time]. Endless phone calls, thankfully to Newfoundland [I think], and finally a technician spent almost three hours here. I don’t know what was the cause, and neither did he.

    Hilarious, about the water supply 😀

  3. Sorry about the net access. But had a good laugh about the water supply. Always wondered where it came from. Who knew they replenished it from that box every night? Must have a sturdy lock on it during the daytime.
