For those who have noticed my absence, and/or wondered about it:<br><br><br><br><br><br>
My internet connection at home (dedicated T1) was cut accidentally by the moron phone company and it's taking them friggin weeks to fix it.<br><br><br><br>
I'm also not at school as much, with classes out, so due to the Great Net Access Draught of 2003, I have little to no internet access at present. This may continue for a small while.<br><br><br><br>
Ding dongs, the lot of them. Cut our phone lines too. Poo monkeys. Weiner heads. Nincompoops.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
On the plus side, I'm getting a lot more done around the house! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Anyway, I thought I'd mention it so you don't think I'm trying to be an aloof bee-otch.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Hope things are OK here.<br><br><br><br>
(...And DAMN there are a ton of Vegweb newbies! ...I'm not used to logging in and seeing 7,000 new posts since my last visit.)

Do you get at least 1 year free service from the company once it's restored? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

NO.<br><br><br><br>
And I forgot to add that last week my cell phone died for a few days, Trevor's was lost, AND right now the satellite TV is not working.<br><br><br><br>
So we've had just about a total communication failure around here. I'm so out of touch with the outside world I'm thinking of reverting to the horse and wagon for continuity.

Hi Avalon, telephone engineers are the pits aren't they! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
I am also MIA. or rather wounded in action. My back had a mishap- I'm now banned from the internet, sitting or standing or gardening. For ever. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> You can see I'm obeying instructions...

You have a dedicated T1 at your house? Wow...I'm terribly impressed. (I work for AT&T ordering T1's for major corporations).

Yeppers. Trev, my telecom genius boyfriend, is THE MAN.<br><br><br><br>
We are a highly webocentric household.<br><br><br><br>
And have no fear, Nigel is safe for now (For those who don't know: that's my car...) Though selling Rusty Frecklebum is proving slightly more drawn out than I originally thought.<br><br><br><br>
Mainly because I'm lazy as hell.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Thanks for the Organs, Majake, I'll keep that in mind. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
(BTW- just which ones are you offering??)

I certainly was wondering, lovely Avalon, but I'm glad to hear that all is well. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/cool3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cool:">
