The cable was still working via the genny and we were watching TV by the cozy woodstove and she says,"The whole area is dark and we're watching CABLE! This is positively 'decadent'!" I told her to be darn thankful she married a "country boy"! :D


I tell my wife the same thing, and she says SHE IS! Actually, most times I don't have to say a word....she tells me! :thumbs:

Cable still down. So much for getting work done on the site. Hopefully we get it back sometime tomorrow.

So your phone can't link to your PC or laptop I take it? Fred can provide internet service to his PC or laptop via his smart phone.

I can tether my iPad with my Andriod phone, but it counts as data on my cell plan, or I can use the 3G on the iPad.

Sorry to hear that the cable is still out George. I hope that you get it back soon! I'm sure that the cable company will knock it off of your next bill though :bigrofl: (yeah, right!)
Verizon has the capability to act as a wireless hot spot for other devices, but you have to pay extra for the service!

My Son was showing me the other day how his Iphone could act as a hot spot. That would be one option.

I probably could use my phone for internet but our signal at the house isn't the best. Looks like it will be at least Wednesday till we get it back.

That sucks! I'd loose my mind without the home service. Surfing with the phone is OK when you don't have another way, but nothing beats the high speed! I hope that they surprise you and get it up sooner!

Folks are wondering when the voting will begin. I let them know your service was down, George. Hope you come home this evening and it's back!

We finally got internet service again. Going to take me a while to catch up if I can. Will work on the classifieds this weekend. I would have liked to have had them setup already.

I'll take Boston any day over NYC.


The last time I was in NYC, some guy in greasy dread locks was out running around in the street in his underwear. >tsk<




We finally got internet service again.


Well, I lost my cell phone last week. Not the service, just the phone. Old age sucks so much!
