Technical Difficulties - Please stand by

There it is!!

A quick post from work.

That's right work.

Despite several pre-moving phone calls to ensure that my new house was high speed DSL ready, good ole Ma Bell has proven to be her usual bitchy self and is suffering from a terminal case of rectal-cranial inversion.

Plugging in my modem resulted in nothing at all.

Actually that's not quite true as it resulted in a 2 hour phone call to tech support in which it was determined that my house needs a new line card and they will be resolving the problem in the next 24-48 hours. Given their typical response times I expect to be back online within 2-1236 days.

Unpacking continues and if you hear a story about some strange event with Bell Sympatico internet services in the news, you can point to the article and say "Hey ! I know that guy!"

So no HNT, no posts and no sanity for me, but the sanity thing is just more of the same.

See you when I'm reconnected. If they don't fix my house up with high speed soon, I may just have to suggest they undergo a little electronic proctology. I can thank my lucky stars that I'm in Canada where the prison system is remarkably cozy, at which point this may rapidly evolve into a prison blog!!

I want, moving chaos! Bring it on! I've spent long enough "going to move." I want "moving."

If you go to prison can you make me a new licence plate for my truck. I got rear ended a year ago and we don't get new plates until 2008..
Ha, rear ended and you going to prison..

Oh no! Hope that gets cleared up very soon. It can be dangerous blogging from work (but I'm doing it right now...)

The last time I moved, it took a few days for internet to be up and running too. That sure sucks! Maybe you would want to go to prison because they have a better connection? :-)

Well that settles it then...I'm just going to have to stay put in this run down house of mine...I can't take the risk of being without the internet for even 12 hours. My sons will actually come out of their bedrooms and then I might have to cook for them!

And just imagine how long it would have taken if you hadn't warned them you were moving!
