Hi. Sorry I didn't write on Monday. My body shut down very early, but when I woke up, I found that my internet connection was poor. Unplugging the router/modem combination made things worse.
I am pretty sure it has to do with the work done in the Valley over the weekend. I recall that the installer wanted to use the same pppoe username that I use in the city. Along with a newly-crafted password to boot. When they realized that this would not do, they gave me a new pppoe username, but meanwhile the password to the username in the city was still changed. When I unplugged the modem/router last evening, it tried to log back on with the new password. Don't ask me why it didn't realize for more than 2 days that the password had changed.
At least, I think that's the problem. I typed in what I dimly recall the password to be, which is written on a piece of paper in the Valley and which I will see again this weekend. I had to leave for work this morning before I could learn if I had typed in the pppoe password correctly.
My god, this has been a frustrating experience. They messed up the work order date, twice. The man who shows up on Saturday does good work but is obliged to put in a second phone line (with an attendant phone number) in the house when I did not ask for this to happen. Now, this debacle with pppoe password. What will they mess up next?
But that's not what I want to talk about today.
I was going to address that in this post, too, but it is a new topic and I want to make nice with you guys, so I will give you a second blog post today. You're welcome.
See you later on today.
