AT LONG LAST, I HAVE INTERNET AT HOME AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JESUS H. CHRIST IN A ZEPPELIN, I AM SO OUTRAGEOUSLY HAPPY!
Happy enough that I want to do this dance:
After one of the dimwits at AT&T finally
told me that the dsl service I was receiving just fine three weeks ago absolutely couldn't be restored (*shakes fist at corporate idiocy*), I bit the bullet and called Comcast yesterday about cable internet. It costs a fair amount more than dsl, which is not good
for me right now, but it's worth it. Ordering by phone was easy and fairly quick, and they scheduled a technician to come out and make it happen the very next day. (That technician arrived two hours later than the end of the time window they told me, but when he arrived he was rather hot, so that was something.) Look how easy that was.
Now I have beautiful, blazing fast internet that I can access from my own sofa, bed, kitchen, or any other location in the house. It's like I'm living in the 21st century or something! I want to pet the internet and whisper "my precioussssss" to it.
Here is one of the many shiny things that I can once again view in the privacy of my home: a brilliant fan-made map of the TARDIS
. It's gorgeous, intricate, funny, and sometimes even poignant. This, kids, is why fandom is awesome.
