Yesterday, about this time, I was in the process of composing a nice piece to send out on the something to know creation. Just as I was transferring my work to the Pages application, to get it formatted properly to copy back to an email format....the freaking internet went down. I lost it all, then tried to recompose what I had originally set up, but then lost it again. Called Spectrum, and was told of an expected 1pm fix (it was now about 11am). Needless to say, at 2pm I was still down. From then to about 7:30pm, I had been on the phone with Spectrum for about 3 hours, been to a Spectrum store to swap out my old Arris modem for a new Spectrum (Ubee) modem, still nothing was resolved, and I lost phone service as well in the process. You are really at the bottom of barrel in this day in age when both your internet and phone service are not working. Lynne and I had to go out to our street to get a good enough wireless phone signal with t-mobile to be able to contact Spectrum again. All of this came to a resolution when all Spectrum could do was to have a tech come out to pay us a service call.....on the 27th of September. We did get our phone service working again with Spectrum doing all they could on their end to help us, and I have to say ALL the customer service people were sympathetic, and were going to get us up and running the whole time. It wasn't until our son called us from Santa Monica, that he (an astute and extremely capable techie) was able to make sense of the jumble of spaghetti wiring in the back of my electronics (Onkyo receiver and 5 surround sound speaker wire system), Google wi-fi extender, Airport Express router for my iTunes remote music, Blue Ray DVD player, Direct TV Genie system - in other words a real mess of wires and power supplies with separate electrical wiring for each system. It reminded me of how airports get so screwed up as they age - when airport capacity needs to expand, they just build another terminal, and then more jetways, each year, and after 30 years of this, you get a real messy infrastructure. You get the picture. Now, getting back to stuff you need to know.....there is no possible way for you to keep up with the frenzy of events, fires, hurricanes, and failures of leadership. For comical relief, just stick with Trump and his confusion between herd mentality and herd immunity. The slime of the swamp is everywhere in the White House and the immediate reach of those unqualified and corrupt officials put into key federal government positions. Have a good day.
