I Was Cut Off From the World

 

CURSE or BLESSING ?

disconnect

 

 

 

 

revengeWhile posting on Active Rain this morning I got the dreaded "This page is unavailable" message. I assumed the site was under heavy load and that I got kicked off... not so.

I called my IP and they couldn't trace down the problem so they sent someone right over (with-in the hour any way).

I was bummed, almost into instant AR withdrawal was setting in.

Then someone walked into the office... I had forgot that I set up a radio interview. No problem, I don't need the internet for that. 

Then the IP guy showed up. Bigger problem then expected, needed time to figure it out.

Then the Mayor of Minot showed up for an interview... oops... I forgot he was coming... no problem, all the equipment was already set up.

Then the radio station called and needed me in the office. No problem, the IP guy found the problem out side the house and had fixed it.

Maybe tomorrow will be normal... maybe.

You seem to go with the flow quite easily!  But kudos to your awesome IP guy for being so quick and resolving the problem.

Dear Bob,

It might not be so bad if more of us were cut off from time to time. Time to read or get other stuff done.

Morning Bob.

I thought you had retired???  Doesn't sound like it.  I find it interesting that after retirement, one is usually busier than they were before retiring

I'm glad your IP guy was able to fix the issue! Hopefully today will be a lot smoother, although it sounds like yesterday was full of interesting things!

Hello Bob - normal?  Or the new normal? Stuff happens. You know what needs to happen and you make it happen.

Francine Viola some days I go with the flow better than others. It was nice that our internet provider sent some one over so fast.

At least you got the problem fixed, I am at such a loss when my internet is not working properly.

I agree Dorte, it did let me take care of some other business.

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Bob Timm, Project Coordinator for Tivoli Homes (Tivoli Custom Homes) about 2 months ago

It was very active Endre Barath, Jr. and over all a very good one.

You got that right James Dray . I've got 3 part time jobs that have all turned into full time jobs (none of which pay me any money ).

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Bob Timm, Project Coordinator for Tivoli Homes (Tivoli Custom Homes) about 2 months ago

It was interesting Kat Palmiotti  and fun. Today is starting out as a real nightmare which I will post about later.

Good morning Bob. Like you being isolated in technology is troublesome but is a first world problem. I still had breakfast.

Wayne Martin I was calm yesterday but this morning I had a 1 hour visit with healthcare .gov and my blood is boiling!

Today is the day I need some seditives Barbara Todaro after getting off the phone with a government poliy wonk. After an hour of IRS type of questioning regarding my health insurance he said he couldn't help me.

Thanks Michael Jacobs , I think I need to be one of those people who goes off the grid soon.

Brian England luckily I was not at fault on this incident so the internet provider sent someone out right away to fix it.

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Bob Timm, Project Coordinator for Tivoli Homes (Tivoli Custom Homes) about 2 months ago

I find comfort in breakfast as well Sheila Anderson . Yesterday ended up being a pretty good day.

Hello       Bob "RealMan" Timm, I hope it was a  normal day the next day and this only happens once a year.

Is it just me, or are "normal" days on the decline?  Tomorrow, we are expecting heavy rains in Sacramento.  I have a stack of firewood on the back step, and a couple good movies to shove into the DVD.  I'm hoping it is a quiet, "normal" day.

That sounds like a great time Myrl Jeffcoat .

The worst thing that happens too often on AR is being in the middle of a long post and then losing it by clicking the wrong key!!! acckkkk.  I like the cartoon.  It exactly colors the mindset.
