Computer problems

I was offline from last Monday until yesterday afternoon, due to a computer problem. When our neighbors were cutting down a tree in their yard damaged by a recent ice storm, we got a power surge through the phone lines. Our phones had no dial tone and sounded dead. So, we waited for four days until the AT&T guy came and said there was some sort of problem in the house, then left without coming in, because he said he'd have to wait for another work order. Gee, thanks for that, we thought.

Anyway, since we are on dial-up, our modem was fried. Thankfully, the hard drive and monitor were saved by our surge protector. Our computer guy switched the part out yesterday, so now I'm back up and a-runnin'.

Don't you just love seems like whenever there is a problem they have to send another person out. We are trying to get HD TV set up with Dircet TV and now we have to wait until the snow is gown and the ground is thawed out before they can put the dish up for us.

I know exactly what you mean Carol! You'd think these people are getting paid by the hour - how many hours and days they make us wait, that is. :)
