Online!

Yes, friends, we have internet service at home again!

Last night Dan got a call from our next door neighbor that his modem was working. We tried ours, but no luck. Dan called Comcast and was able to get some information on repairs going on in the neighborhood. He got us onto the list and today at noon I noticed that the modem was working. I plugged in the router but was unable to get online due to setup issues. Dan fixed it on his lunch break, though, and everything is working great!

So nearly three weeks after the storm, my life is finally back to normal.

Woohoo! Glad to see you're back in blogland!
Amazing, isn't it, how we've all come to rely on this form of communication?

YAY! I bet it feels good to be connected again. I went a few days without a power cord for my laptop and it was awful!

Kathleen said...

Congrats! That's great news :-)

Shh. Don't tell anyone. I caught Trevor doing a happy dance over your news.

He's sorta sexy, in a skinny, rangy, ugly sort of way.

Yippee! Life without Internet service is really boring! Glad you're connected.

Welcome back! Since you wondered, Mario was actually trying to pack himself in the bag to go to Houston to help Cadbury eat the craisins!

Are there any Craisins left? Congrats on being connected again, three weeks can be a long time. Does anyone remember when it was just dial-up?

Regarding dialup, I'm set up for that on my laptop because when I go to visit my father it's the only option. But I don't have a landline here at home, so I couldn't use that after my cable failed. I would've gladly tolerated 56K or even 28.8K these past few weeks, given that the other option was nothing.

wow.
you trumped our SHORT hurricane fran experience.

I know the three weeks felt like forever huh?

Here's to normalcy!

IKE .. the storm that kept on giving!

So, in disaster preparedness, how do you prepare for loss of I-net service? A big stack of books?
