AT&T Bites

So it rained Saturday and Sunday the Internet was gone again. The telephone was there, though with some static, but the Internets have been gone ever since. The guy who climbs poles won't come back until next Monday (with the same ten-hour window of opportunity he had last time) and maybe I will get Internets back then. Until then I'm stuck with brief opportunities to be online with an unfamiliar computer (gah, the keyboard!) with borrowed Internets via a borrowed cell phone line of limited bandwidth. It's immensely irritating to use, so I might not bother for the rest of the week, and so I might not be back until Monday, and not then if AT&T screws up again.

Anyway, I'm not dead (yet) but, given that I've got no full-time Internets it's very close to the same thing. I am a digital zombie, starving for lack of brains. Can't eat AT&T's brains. It has none. If I do get Internets back Monday there'll be a lot of catching up to do. The e-mail alone will probably take a day or more.

Meanwhile, here's compensatory Wednesday Verse, of my own composition, for the Sunday Verse I was unable to post:

  • Supplementary

    So I got back to sleep a bit before nine o'clock this morning, and a bit before ten I heard a piece of machinery start up outside. I thought it might…
