IP Address Changes

sad macI love it when internet providers make changes and wait for you to uncover the problem. Thankfully I was not needing the use of my internet service. Wanting it, yes; needing it, no.

After an afternoon of no internet followed by an early morning rousting [thanks, Dwayne, I just love waking up before 6 a.m.] I finally called to inquire on the issue. Turns out my static IP had changed along with my secondary server. And all was well for a little while…

DSL connecting…

This time I didn’t wait. I called and hung up since it fixed itself. Uh, not really. I called back. I’m told the static on the line is causing my DSL connection to waver. I need to call voice support. Oh, and do I have line guard? Um, I have online billing so I can’t check on that.

Why do they always ask about line guard anyway? Many of you may swear by it, but I am 99.9% sure I do not have this. It’s only necessary if the problem is inside the building. Everything else is covered, period. I’ve yet to have it be an issue inside the building.

Head colds, how fun

sickAgain, a big thank you to Dwayne for this lovely head cold I’ve been nursing over the weekend. I never get sick so I should be grateful it’s only a little discomfort. Maybe I just needed some sleep. I boycotted cooking this weekend [there were plenty of leftovers and other quick fixes] and rested instead.

Needless to say I have been neglecting my blog rounds. Today I’m taking it slow and will be back full tilt tomorrow. I even told Amanda to take the Jeep since I have no plans to leave the house. She didn’t argue with me. Actually, she didn’t even say, “Thanks mom”. Kids! :)

  1. These are the times when we wish we can say to blog visitors that there are post left overs in the fridge. And can you please help yourselves to it while I dive back under the blanket again.

    @jan geronimo, That is such a great way to put it. Next time I feel the ick coming on I will do a little recap of some things visitors may have missed. Some leftovers are better the second time around, too.

  2. Anne, oh I know how you feel – DSL, online failures can really hurt us. I recall the day when I had to make calls to support team and after all the DSL light checking, plug in this, that; still nothing. Until after a long wait, the service back up by itself but enough to make my head spinning wild.

    I hope you get some good rest these few days, recharge for a full come back. Rest assured we’ll be here waiting for you. :-) Do take great care! *hugs*

    @Ching Ya, I’m not sure what was more frustrating, the not breathing well thing or the sketchy internet/DSL fade out thing. They were out today and fixed the static on the line and so far so good on the internet and DSL staying on and full speed.

    That hug was just what the doctor ordered, too. Thank you. :)

  3. Sorry to hear about your head cold! Not feeling my best either here. I think it’s a seasonal thing?

    @Anne Moss, I think it may just be something going around. My daughter hasn’t felt well and neither has my husband. It seems to have finally ran its course with me, thank goodness. Tomorrow I run errands and remember there is a world outside of my couch. :) Hope you feel better, too.
