In which my out is browned

Bad: Power outage that took my my DSL, because apparently the momentary outage did something lame to local telecom systems.

Good: None of my own equipment was damaged.

Truly Excellent: A phone call to my DSL provider reached a real human who was an authentic tech support person, who knew exactly what to do and instantly fixed the problem by regombulating or simonizing the circuit in some way.

Speakeasy is not the cheapest DSL, but once again I’m reminded of how much it’s worth it.

  1. You realize, of course, that you only got a real, useful, hyooman because the power outage killed off the voicemail and the drones, right? 🙂

    1. Speakeasy always answers their phone with a human who is a real tech, 24-7. I’ve never experienced anything less from them.

      1. Wow. You live in a different reality, don’t you?
        Excuse me while I wipe the excess cynicism from the side of my mouth…
