Internetless, sorta…

I’m typing this from the University of Kansas campus.

My DSL connection at home crapped out yesterday afternoon — apparently, AT&T’s DSL hub for the entire city of Lawrence went tits-up. When I called yesterday (after being transferred through the usual tech support queue — Bombay, India to St. Louis, MO), they confirmed that the main hub was out, and that there was no ETA for it to be back up.

When I woke up this morning, still no joy. I called again, and was told the same thing — including the fact that there was still no ETA. Jesus Monkey-Lovin’ Christ. Today’s operator informed me that something called an OS-3 card was out, and that they were going to be replacing it, whatever that means.

So, I Can Has No Intarwebs in my office. picked me up at lunch, and brought me to campus, where I can, at least, answer my backlog of emails.

Not A Happy Camper.
