Limited internet access today – no broadband

Hi all!
Late yesterday afternoon we temporarily lost our broadband connection and have a service call in to fix the issue. We’ve done all we can do with the ISP, so now it’s up to the phone company to remedy the DSL issue.

I won’t be on chat or checking my mail regularly, so if you’re a friend or family member that needs to get in touch with me, you already know my mobile and home numbers. I’ll be back on as usual soon. (Hopefully today or tomorrow.) I’m using a dialup line to post this, but won’t be on it unless necessary since we need it for the business access and don’t want to pay for it to be up continually.

I already felt the detox unpleasantness of being without the internet last night… I cleaned the kitchen, mopped, did laundry… argh. I’m useless without the web! If I start wearing an apron shoot me! šŸ™‚ No, really- I’ll use this time to do some writing, more tidying up and other things that I find get left in the dust of my web surfing habits. I’m going to attempt to embrace this lull in geekiness even if it kills me. šŸ˜‰

  1. I had the same thing happen to me, though I thought it was either my iMac (which said the hard drive controlle was bad – then 10 mins later said actually it’s ok) and then I went through my OS X Server, as it runs my DNS. Finally I checked the thing I should have checked first, the router, to see no IP.

    I used next doors wireless connection, nice of them to leave it open, and found that BT and Zen both had serious issues which seemed to be causing the problem.

    Still, it’s back now.

  2. Yeah- lots of complaints in our area to BT via Zen. It’s being worked on right now, but it still sucks. šŸ™
