I have no phone, but internets are working.. Perhaps theyllek
and I should pool our resources? Actually, it doesn't bother me too much - if it were the other way around I'd be freaking.
tho I do have a neighbor with an unsecured router
So I called and dealt with the very annoying automated menu person at Verizon, who seemed to be getting more and more annoyed with me as I was not being very cooperative and kept asking to speak to a real person. She even told me huffily that the automated menu is fully qualified to solve many problems. Now I have visions of a Dr Who like incident where the AutoMatedMenuPeople come and attack me while I sleep....
Finally got a person, and did their prerequisite unplug replug everything etc, called back, dealt with AAMMP, got live person again, who agreed to send someone tomorrow between 8 and 2. Which means TehJerry will have to get his butt out of bed before I leave for Orks.
Dude just called me on my cell to say he tested the line and it appears to be working b/c it's rining. *rolls eyes* I pick up phone. Um, no dial tone. So you have to come, and fix the problem at the box, where it has been the last twenty times this has happened. He helpfully told me he'd also check my DSL, which is very nice, but that's working thankyouverymuch, as I am presently chatting with the Hungarian.
Right. Now back to making pancakes for Pancake Day.
