Internet in the boonies

Friday, August 16, 2013

The internet at home in Colorado is slow at the best of times but the day before yesterday it ground to a screeching halt.. with odd blips here and there, very odd indeed, emails can be received but nothing can be sent and pages don't open. So annoying as my morning routine involves almost an hour on the net.. I have been feeling quite lost and out of touch :(

Considering that this is the USA you would expect better internet ( even in the boonies!) than in Mexico.. no, in Mexico we have fiber optic and super fast internet!

Anyway today the truck had to go to the garage (see previous blog) and I went early to get a haircut and use the internet at the coffee shop. Durango Joe's is a life saver!! You ROCK!

    You would think you would get better service. Hopefully it will get better for you.

    Oh my goodness...who would have thought! I complain about our internet but won't complain any more as at least it is reasonable.
    So frustrating.
    Have a great evening.

    Oh and yes, I am sure the writer of Downton Abbey are having a ball.

    Technology is great when it works, and a source of great aggravation when it doesn't!

    Hopefully your internet connection improves over the coming days and you don't feel so disconnected. At least you live in a beautiful area and you can find something wonderful to do while you're not on the internet!

    How did the hair cut turn out?
