I try to write a post everyday during the week, Monday through Friday. I cannot be held responsible for the lack of posts on the weekends. I mean, it’s the WEEKEND, peeps, and we are busy. Busy watching movies, outdated TV shows, CNN Headline News over and over again. Busy shopping for food products. Busy crocheting a scarf for the hound (winter is coming). You know, busy.

But ever since we got here lately, we have had Internet problems. P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. Like, it doesn’t work. At all. Zippo. Nada. Nothing. For 12-14 hours at a time. Usually the 12-14 hours that I need to work on the computer. For you techies out there, here is why there are so many problems. You might want to sit down for this. The violent belly-laughing you are about to do could drop you to the floor and you don’t want to do that from an upright position.

OK, here goes….

The entire city is on a giant LAN and our particular ISP is point to point. The LAN runs underground and is easily accessible through manholes. No, seriously. It is. What does this mean? This means that when it rains, the cables get wet. When it snows, they get really cold. Often, the cables are exposed, and mutant teenagers walk around and cut them….for fun!

When it works, it works really well. We can download whole movies in less than an hour, and songs in seconds. But when it doesn’t work, well….I get really really mad. I mean, once or twice I could understand. But this has happened twice just this week. Unacceptable. We are now in negotiations to change providers. Perhaps this problem will begin to resolve sometime around Christmas, because that’s about the speed at which things change around here.

Anyways, this is just my pathetic excuse for my lack of good posts lately. I plan on rectifying that this week. I have many, MANY topics of discussion for you. And I plan on getting them up. Here. On this blog. Seriously.
If the Internet works.
