And I'm Back

cableIt seems like I've been without Internet forever, when in reality it has only been a few days.  Even when I was on the cusp of getting it, wouldn't you know it almost didn't happen.  I was explaining to my friend Sandy one time how nothing ever comes easy for me.  I'm not sure why that is the case, but it's true.  So when the cable guy came to install everything, he couldn't find the closet where he needed to make the connection.  After much searching, and finally asking a neighbor, we found it.  But wouldn't you know it, it was locked.  As the cable guy came late (which was annoying in itself) there was nobody in the office to actually let him in to turn the cable on.  Lucky for me, there happened to be one maintenance guy still around after hours because he was putting together some new gym equipment.  He was kind enough to let us in.

So I thought we were finally close, he would find the right cable, plug it in, and we would be on our way.  Of course, like I said, nothing comes easy.  He goes back and forth trying to get a signal, but just can't find one.  After many attempts, we discover a cable that is not plugged in on the patio.  So we go through the whole exercise again.  Still nothing.  So we take the cover off the wall, and discover a mess of other cables.  So we try a few of those.  Finally a signal!  Two hours later, and I'm back online.  Have a lot to say, but at this point I'm tired, and going to call it a night.  I'll resume my regular posting schedule shortly.

  1. That must have been rough. The internet is the main source of communication now. At point it was the radio (when Teddy Roosevelt would read war news to the public). Now I only listen to the radio for traffic. Glad you're back.
