Yesterday my e-mail was on the fritz. Last night at about 11 the Internet went out. Today at about 2:30 PM they got it fixed and my e-mail was on the fritz again.
I counted up the calls I have had to the help desk since April: 16!
Now, its not because I am stupid – Don’t ask my mother-in-law about that – Its not my fault when the Internet does not work. I live five miles from a city. Not a big city but a real city and have DSL. You would think it not that hard to keep my Internet working.
Maybe its just the hillbilly curse. We are supposed to still be in bare feet and living with our cousins, right? Maybe West Virginians have not advanced to the point they are able to have working Internet. If Senator Byrd was still around I bet he could get some Federal assistance to correct this.
The guys that come to work on my Internet are local guys and most are shooters. They are dedicated and accommodating but it would appear they are working with crap equipment. I appreciate their efforts and have given them empty brass and other goodies. At least now I have a cell number I can call to get help fast.
I guess the good news is that I spent all day actually writing. Also set up a land navigation course for my son to test out the new Bushnell Backtrack Point 5. What a great outdoor gadget. If you are a hunter or outdoor person order one of these today. $ 79.98 here.
