I’m surprised I have any hair left today because these past eight days have been STRESSFUL.
In this world of cell phones that can do anything except hang out the washing, and computers that tell me what to do, it’s hard for other people to believe that we don’t have Broadband, that we’re only one step on from dial up. Our internet is via satellite, which is fine, though a little slow. There are times when it is not fine – like when the wind is blowing like stink, which it does most days of spring: like when there’s low cloud cover or fog, which happens periodically in winter.
But hey, I chose to live out here in this idyllic setting miles away from towns and people and cars – and broadband. So, most days I suck it up and life’s good. We’re aren’t the only ones dealing with this. Remote areas around the world have the same or similar issues.
As the photo says, life’s pretty darned amazing.
But then there is the ME factor. Ten days ago I went to the desktop and there was a download going on. It looked okay to me so I clicked yes on the continue button and did as I was told – went away for forty minutes. Well, twenty four hours later 90% of our months usage had been gobbled up, access to my other email site, my blog sites, etc, had become beyond difficult, and I was in the dog box with my DB. (Not so dear for a few days.) I never click on downloads so what I was thinking – probably wasn’t – I have no idea.
Thank goodness for men who eat, sleep and breath computer technology. A few days later we were almost back to normal. See, nothing happens quickly when you live in Paradise. Tradesmen and computer men naturally take the jobs closer to home first.
So if you’re reading this it means all is well in my corner again. If you’re not then I’m bald and you haven’t got a clue what’s going on.
Does anyone else out there have these problems?
