Computers, Can't Live with Them

For nearly two weeks now I have been having problems with Blogger and Noos (our cable company) making it very difficult to post or comment on blogs, including mine. For these last two weeks my cable would work for two minutes and then stop working. While it was working, I would try to post on Blogger only to reach another stumbling block. Blogger would also only work for short spurts. Getting Blogger and Noos to work together was a miracle and I ended up spending twice as much time at my computer trying to get simple tasks accomplished.

Blogger fixed itself a few days ago. Then Noos sent us a notice that they had upgraded their system and that they were sending us a new modem. Yeah! We thought all of our problems might be solved. We received the modem and set it up. It didn't work. The old modem now doesn't work at all either. We have to call Noos on Friday.... basically the beginning of a long Easter holiday here.

I don't expect my computer to work for a while. I'm at my husband's office right now. I will try to post over the next couple of days, but will not be able to download my pictures. I will add them later, once my computer is happy again.

Sounds as if your Noos service is on greve. It seems common to that type of service world wide - ours tends to go out at will too. Terry in SF

Terry, You are always so nice!
Pat, The weather was absolutely wonderful today. I spent 2 hours at the park after school.

For a while I thought it was MY computer/internet provider causing problems. I'm glad it's getting worked out, I'm just sorry it has to be over the holiday Blah.
Happy Easter.
