I donít know whether to write anything or not. Itís so frustrating not to have my DSL line working. Thereís a dial-up option, but Iíd have to go on line to figure out how it works, and I canít get on line. So here I sit, disconnected from the world even more than usual.
The problem first arose when I couldnít use my fax line. I didnít know I couldnít use it until Iíd spent two hours trying to send a fax to the Boss. After dozens of failed attempts, I finally decided to take a closer look, and it turned out that the fax machine was refusing to dial out at all. So I plugged a phone into that line, and there was no dial tone.
All this had started at about the same time I lost my DSL connection. So I called SBC Repair to report the problem, and they checked the line before asking me to make an appointment. All of this was done by machine, and I never talked to a regular human person, so I couldnít express my dismay when they said that the first available day for a repair person was next Tuesday.
It could be worse, I guess. No, really. It could be a lot worse. This is just a minor bump on the muddy road of life, and Iíll survive it. I kind of wish Iíd had some warning, though.
