Broken Internets Again!



The Case of the Missing Internet!

Our internet disappeared again on Friday afternoon. Momma was glad that she was able to post and visit before it went away.
By the time the Daddyman came home it was gone again! This morning it came back and we hope it stays this time!

Momma Lorianna here: Our internet provider shares the telephone poles with the local phone company and works out of their building downtown. Somehow literally or figuratively wires were crossed and we lost the ability to get online. What I don't understand is how I was able to get online earlier on Friday after it was down the first time and then what happened to it after I got offline and later that day? Weird...
Anyway, a repairman finally came out yesterday, determined the problem and gave it to the phone company to fix since they caused the problem in the first place. That of course meant the problem wasn't fixed until this morning.

So now we can blog and visit again! :)

Toeshee says: Yay! I was getting bored Momma!

Hugs to everyone!~

YAY, yer back! (fur now at least!) We HATE when that happens. Our humans have digital internet, so if we lose it, that means we lose TV AND phones too! But, it's pretty good nonetheless. Now, we are tryng to convince the humans to get rid of their dinosaur computer and get a new, faster one! We don't care, it's not OUR money! MOL

Plllllllllsttt to the phone company. They seem to cause a lot more problems than they fix sometimes. But we do need their service.

Oh the internet is so frustrating! We have problems but they are because of the cable company - no matter how many times we call they don't really fix it - they just say it is bad infrastructure that needs to be replaced. It is very frustrating!

Losing the Internet is very frustrating!

Mom started her PT this week. Keep your fingers and paws crossed this helps.

We feel like a fish out of water if we can't cruise the cat blogs everyday! Hope it stays fixed!!!!

I hope that the phone company fixed the problem so that it doesn't occur again. Not being able to blog and visit can get very frustrating.

Our phone, TV and internet package all comes from BT but thankfully it only seems to shut down in thirds, not altogether. (Quickly touches wood!) The internet bit was OK till recently, when they did an "update" and now mine goes on and off, on and off. Sometimes it's on and off every 2 minutes. Grrr.

My mom has had a lot of broken internets over the last year too. Ours is finally working. Hope yours is back now!
