I Hate My ISP Redux

The connectivity gods have taken exception to me once again ... this time for good. After spending 2.5 hours on the phone with the ISP's service department last night, the problem could not be fixed - or diagnosed for that matter. They are sending a technician out on Monday between 12 and 4 pm. So it looks like I won't be back online until Monday evening or Tuesday afternoon at the earliest ... that is, of course, dependent on the problem being fixed. Ugh. I'm at my wit's end.

I came into my office so I could post the warning and, once again, ask for your good thoughts with respect to my connection being fixed. I might die before Monday. Really.

In the meantime, if I owe you an email, or comments, or whatever, know that I am not ignoring you - I'm just in ISP hell. Bear with me and I'll be back up and running as soon as I can.

Have a wonderful weekend and let's hope all will be well come Monday afternoon.


The saddest Diva imaginable.

I just tuned into your blog. I found it through the blog-o-sphere of grapevine-ness.

I'm sure the connectivity gods will be kind to your needs very soon.

TSK TSK TSK...posting from the office?

Hahaha, that's ok. I do that too sometimes. =)

Sorry about your connection. I pray it comes back on soon!!!!

We'll be offering a small chicken sacrifice to the internet gods in the hopes of appeasing them and getting them to look kindly n your ongoing need for a stable internet connection. In the meantime, keep breaking the rules and post from anywhere you can - I won't tell.

Thanks, everyone! The prayers and the chicken sacrifice must have worked, because I seem to be up and running for now. Still a bit shaky on the connection, so let's hope it lasts long enough for me to get something written for today!

May the ISP Gods smile upon you my dear now and forever. And I can't wait to try your new potato recipe!
The Irish guy loves all things potato as you know so I'll let you know the results.
