Yesterday I thought my phone line had issues again.
Anytime we have a lot of rain or snow we get a horrible buzzing in our line which eventually erases all traces of a dial tone.
Yesterday it buzzed so loudly I about lost my hearing when I went to use it. I used my tracphone with dwindling minutes to call the phone company. I did a little dance when she told me the repair man was in the area and would come to fix it.
Rod (yes we’re on a first name basis…that happens when you have a bad line), spent an hour trying to track down the problem because its ALWAYS been outside in the line. But, he ended up inside this time and we eventually tracked it down to the modem in my computer.
UGH! The modem I had just replace a month and a half ago.
Good news the computer shop in town replaced the bad modem for free.
Bad news after I loaded and installed it, I am only getting 36 bps. That’s ten slower than before.
Not a good thing for a girl who has a thing for blog reading and photography.
SOOOOO! Tomorrow I call my internet provider. If they can’t help me I will have to resort to calling the computer shop and possibly having it looked at AGAIN!
Just thought I would let you know why I am not reading and commenting. As soon as I get a bit more speed behind me I’ll be back in the ring! :)
