    DancingBanana Back from the digital void

    I know it’s not a big deal to anyone else but I’m back from the data-less black hole. My underground phone line had been cut by the county for some municipal upgrades which knocked out my Internet and TV services for a couple of weeks.

    I switched to Comcast which mostly routes its cables on poles but the self-install kit didn’t work and they had to send out a crew to troubleshoot. They connected a new line at the top of the pole and then ran a cable across my lawn. A couple days later, another Comcast dude came and buried it, even routing it under my driveway.

    Happily, I am now back online with broadband speeds and full access to cable TV (YouTube TV). Woohoo! I guess I missed a couple of political conventions and a hurricane? Anyway, so glad to be connected again. I just have to say, I grew up without Internet or cable TV but being without for a mere couple of weeks left me feeling like I was in the Stone Age. Talk about being addicted to data!

    Re: Back from the digital void

    I'm glad you are back in the 21st century. 2020 just plain sucks and I stopped watching the news. Covid, politics, riots, looters, protestors, etc. and my own little problems just get me down.

    I guess I didn’t miss much. Oh, and then there’s a global pandemic to top it off. You name it, the thing I’m happiest about is being able to listen to my music.

    When is Joe coming over?

    Shoot, I’ve been drinking a little. I didn’t know it was tomorrow or I would’ve waited.
