The pitfalls of electronics.

Monday morning I woke up to find that my modem had kicked the bucket overnight. Sometime after I went to bed, it just quit. Unfortunately this meant that I was compelled to call the customer service department of my internet service provider.

I can't be the only one who hates those menus.

Long story short, a trip to two different stores, and a significant sum of money later, I'm once again connected to the world wide web, and am now free to look up everything I ever wanted to know about weaving and free standing looms, old world-style. This is only partly because my leading lady spends a significant portion of her time in front of a loom, weaving clothing for her family through the centuries. You may expect a post reflecting said research in the near future.


  1. I hate those menus as well. I usually just go to the operator as soon as possible, because without a full-fledged list of how to get places they are bloody useless.

  2. The menu actually hung up on me, too. And directed me to the wrong region of the country for help (some guy in North Carolina, was like, oh sorry, can't do anything for you let me get you to the right region), which resulted in my being sent back TO THE MENU.

    It was an incredibly frustrating experience.
