It took an hour and a half yesterday to pry out of Verizon that the reason we had no Internet access was a problem at their end, not ours: some kind of “outage” somewhere. So far unable to solve it, they sought refuge in a lie: “It must be your modem.”
So now I’m stuck (using the other computer: it’ll probably be without the Internet a couple of minutes from now) and I have lost ALMOST all my readership. Thirteen views. Hot-cha-whoopee. Not that there’s been anything much to view!
I had managed to post some tens of thousands of days in a row, and that streak’s snapped now. I do seem to be learning a lesson, though.
*When confronted with a problem, lie.
Anyway, we have not cleared up our Internet problems yet and I don’t know when Verizon will clean up this mess.
Let’s see if I can post a hymn before the whole thing shuts down again.
