So, I suppose I, like many other people, are much too dependant on technology. Why do I say this?
Well, unfortuntaely I had a death in the family, of the internet router variety. And I learned something about myself: I AM ADDICTED to the internet! And, it was a case of "You don't know how much you need it, until it's gone."
Also, at the same time, my DVR died. (The Cable TV gods HATE me)
*sigh* It's been a few rough days.
I called my service provider AFTER having followed the *helpful* information on the blue screen of death I got on my TV as the *helpful* information suggested.
What did the Customer Service rep do? DISREGARD everything I told her regarding said *helpful* information on the blue screen of death, therefore extending our PAINFUL conversation almost an hour.
"I'm sorry Ms. Szarek (heavily accented) but it appears you need a new DVR and a new modem."
I thought there was supposed to be some SERVICE in Customer Service.
Well, I could only thank her and move on with life.
Hopefully my new equipment will arrive soon (they are mailing it) and I will get it all hooked up before the DTs hit me.
On the upside, I have PLENTY of time to write! NO distractions. (yeah, yeah)
