Update

Yes, I finally have DSL at home. No, that doesn’t mean I have more time to post. I keep thinking of things I want to write about but inspiration is not lining up very well with free time. When one has a post just itching to be written, and one is about to fall over from weariness from too many late nights, one must resist the urge to crank up the computer and write. Rest is more important. So is cleaning up my room. Laundry from last week begs to be folded and put away.

But.

We are in our new office now. It is not finished but it is very exciting to have plenty of room!!! Cabinet guys have been hinting for cookies ever since they made sure the kitchen cabinets were finished first. Today cabinet guys were lamenting the fact that they could not smell cookies baking. I told them every day they keep bringing more cabinet pieces, their chances of smelling cookies increases. First we have to get an oven.

And another fridge.

Inadequacy

 

Said my boss the cabinet guys this morning, “You didn’t measure right for the fridge opening.” Humor goes along way when things are less than ideal!  Oh, and the cabinet doors will be getting pulls on them.

But let me tell you what AT&T pulled with our whole internet thing. Go to their website, put in our phone number and “Congratulations! You qualify for DSL Lite.” And only lite. Specially introductory price even. So we order the service. With DSL Lite you do not get a free modem. It would be cheaper to get a modem elsewhere but a previous experience doing so made me think it was worth getting their modem. Sure enough. Plug it in. Works great. Speed is tolerable. Far better than no internet. Far better than dialup.

I went onto their website a week or so later just to see if an upgrade was available. Sure enough, the plans that would’ve included a free modem are available. So I upgraded. Checked the download speed and it is on par. Yay! We can get DSL Extreme 3.0. Could get 6.0 but don’t feel like shucking out any more $.

But. We don’t get the free modem. And we don’t get the special introductory prices on DSL Extreme that are offered to NEW customers. I wonder if talking to customer service would help at all.

Good night to all!

  1. Oh, that’s funny! πŸ™‚ Love the humor in that! And wow, it’s hard to imagine that nice kitchen in what used to be such an awful looking building!! You all have made it come a long way! Still hoping I’ll be able to stop in sometime before we head out! πŸ™‚

    And YAY for DSL!!

I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to leave a comment.
