Computer problems? Or not.

A few days ago, I lost connectivity on my two computers. The desktop and the laptop were suddenly not connecting to the internet. I called Embarq (like I mentioned before) and they said it was my equipment.

I almost blew a fuse. However, I tried to play around with the desktop first, to see if I could get it working. Nothing.

So today, before disconnecting everything on the computer and taking it to a Geek Squad to look at – I called Embarq ONE MORE TIME, just to see.

Apparently there is an outage in my area and every customer in this area is effected. They have no estimated time of when it will be back. So that means I have no estimated time of when I’ll be on the internet again.

Mom will most likely let me use her computer every now and then, but my withdrawal symptoms have already started, even as I type this from mom’s computer.

I miss my Twitter and my DIST and everything in between. At least I don’t have spend money on getting that shit tested. Just have to wait it out.

At the end of the outage, I get to call the business office and get a discount on my next bill. 3 days of this shit and they had me thinking it was MY equipment. Fuckers.

See ya when I see ya.

Until next time…..

    Aren’t you glad you made that second call. I just love it when the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing. At least now you know that you don’t have problems on your end.

    So glad it wasn’t your equipment – that could’ve been spendy – all for nothing!
