Growing up on the ranch, until they were teens Kali's kids thought their last name was Flintstone.

Here I am accessing the Intertubes at the library again. At least I have my own laptop, so...

.
.
.
... I'm not limited to an hour or less.
.
.
.
Cox is saying it's our modem and suggesting that we buy a new one... and if that doesn't
work, they'll send out a tech (all at our expense). If the modem were on a buyback option --
where they'd buy it back if it proved not to be the problem, I could see that.
.
Funny thing, our landlord down the block has been having connectivity problems starting
at the same time ours did (though not as horrendous). He also has another modem he's
gonna let us try out first - the purchase of the modem would be on him. I talked to my
longterm housemate about this -- if the landlord doesn't take this seriously, he will know
how serious WE'RE taking it when the rent comes due on the 1st.
.
Since Saturday, we've only been able to connect between 15 minutes and 6 hours (today,
in two 3-hour sessions) per day... and ALL that connectivity time has been between 2 AM
and 9 AM -- we've been unable to connect from 9 AM until 2 AM at all.
.
If it were a problem at OUR end -- why is that timing so consistent? Why wouldn't bugs
in our modem hit us sporadically THROUGHOUT the day?
.
I think they're experiencing a problem and they don't want it to get publicity -- they've
learned from long-lasting connectivity problems they've had in the past.
.
.
.
But that's just the liberal corporation-doubting Thomas in me, no?
.
.
.
I didn't stop for a cellphone last night -- ran late with my Dr.'s appointment and was very
tired -- even caught a cab home rather than face the fairly lengthy walks the bus would
have required of me.
.
Still regaining strength and motivation today.
.
Sometimes I miss knowing meth-heads.

I'm going to try to stop on the way home and get a cellphone -- it's been a coupla years.

.
.
.
T-Mobile seems to have a prepaid with no monthly fee and I can buy 1000 minutes
that are good for ONE YEAR for $100.
.
.
Anybody have a good reason why I shouldn't?

I'm at the hospital for a routine PCP appointment. Ask me anything.

.
.
.
Cox has given us 3 hours or less Intertubes connectivity at home each day for the last 3 days -- all VERY
early in the morning.
.
.
.
I may or may not have announced that my COBRA insurance (thus ALL my health insurance) was going
to run out Dec 5th. That was based on an erroneous letter from my ex-place of employment. The
insurance company contacted me and let me know I'm covered until Jan 6th.

My Coxservice (snicker) was nonexistent for most of yesterday and now most of today.

.
.
.
So if I disappear for a little while -- I'll be OK. OK?
