on-off-on-off-on atm...

Post by pilvikki » 06 Jan 2017, 16:41

we've had fun with our net. again. started on Monday when it went belly up and not just for an hour, which we're getting used to. punkin gets an email to get a new Livebox, which was said to be dead.

but oh no... we'll fix it. meanwhile, use this Airbox.

from then on it's been livebox, airbox, deadbox, livebox2, dead again. meanwhile, the kids can't be arsed to let me know which part of the circus is running the show and then I get "but I told you it was back!" WHAT was back?

let's see how long we'll stay connected this time, it's been almost a whole day now.

:rolleyes:

It's scary out there. The virtual world is much safer.

It would be boring, but at least I'd not be attacked by a group of teenagers and be beaten to death. Not that anything like that happens where I live now, but it was not unusual up by Chicago

Better do it quick if you are going to do it at all. When we become "Great Again" you may have to speak Russian to get around. :lol:

I'll take that comment with a grain of salt because I suspect you have not been following American political news. Why would you?

OK, I understand. Most folks here consider the Putin government to be our enemy and working against our national interests. The latest controversy is just the tip of the iceberg. The undermining has been going on for decades. A fresh start would indeed benefit everyone. It's just naive to believe it could happen over night.
