No Bed Of Roses
The basics are all working, but little problems keep popping up with the new system. I’ve found a few cables that no longer work after being unplugged from the old router and plugged into the new one, Fortunately I had working spares.
The most serious problem is with e-mail. I can receive e-mail without a glitch, but I am being rejected when I attempt to send an e-mail. I need to contact the new guys and find out if their spam filter may be unhappy with my e-mail host. I have to wait to talk with a person by phone, because they haven’t given me my account name and initial password yet, so I can’t access their on-line system.
These things scarcely affect the joy I felt when I worked my way through the Phone Company’s menu system to cancel the service. All of a sudden they discovered that it was possible to lower my bill, a bill I’ve been paying since I got a phone from them in 1991.
The news seems to be about the fact that the airliner still hasn’t been located, while the death toll increases in the Washington State mudslide.
