Hey everyone, yes, I’m still alive, but my ADSL line is not. In fact, it’s probably crawling with unmentionable cthulu-like creatures that were birthed at the moment of its anti-climactic death… 😦
I’ve phoned the ADSL provider (Telkom – they are idiots and lazy idiots, at that) about seven times, had conversations with probably seven different people, explained seven times that I can’t connect to the internet, explained seven times about the pretty lights flashing and not flashing on the modem, and have had technicians out to check the line 3 times already. Oh, and the problem has been ‘escalated’ three times, too (I actually wonder if anyone at Telkom has the faintest inkling of what that word means and how to implement it in their work).
In fact, I’m beginning to think that the technicians quick-fix the line so that it’ll see its arse again so that I can call them out again so that they can get paid, AGAIN.
Third World, huh?
I have no idea when I’ll be back up and blogging (Telkom cannot tell me, either) but hopefully it’ll be soon.
for me because I’m struggling… 😦
