There are many things I enjoy about living in a rural setting. The amount of time it takes to get anything accomplished is not one of them.
Two and a half weeks ago we started having trouble with our Internet. We called the place who services our connection and was told he would "be out in the morning". Two weeks later, we called to find out where he was. He comes out, looks at it, says we need a new whatsit and that he'll "be right back". Two days later, we tracked him down and got a string of excuses including that the tower we feed off of suffered a lightning strike.
It's up today, but it's slow. I didn't see him come out, so I don't know if this is a result of him fixing it or if it's a fluke.
In any event, sorry about the hiatus. I'll be back on schedule tomorrow or the next day.
