Wow, what a relief to be back online!

As some of you may have noticed, I have not been able to blog since last week. It is at this point that I must admit that I am still a member of the dial-up community, and therefore dependent on my household phone line to access the Internet. Therefore, when my phone line gets screwed up, I can no longer access the Internet.

When I came home Friday evening, my phone line was still audible but it was filled with static. I WAS able to get online, but the speed was ridiculously slow. However, by Saturday, I had no Internet access, and picking up the telephone produced a sound like an angry beehive.

So when I called the good folks at AT&T (early Saturday afternoon), they informed me that they would be able to send someone out on Tuesday, between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. What expeditious service!!!

Apparently, the guy came out around noon today. So once again, I am able to blog.

Priority 1 -- research DSL plans...

Oh no! To be disconnected! I didn't realize how bad dial-up was until I moved to the city and got DSL. Before, I used to do a lot of things while I was surfing the net, you know like between page loads. When I go to visit my parents, and they only have dial-up, I often do not even bother checking my e-mail because I am not patient enough!

Dude! A dial-up internet connection is my idea of roughing it!

It's good to have you back!

I'm with Mike. Dial up is like de-caf coffee- why bother?
