World of Technology

It’s hard to believe that a little black box called modem can stop communication in this world but it did in my world. I’m back though and hope to entertain and possibly educate about how we live on the farm.

The modem went bad and apparently it happens everyday and all it took was one visit from our wonderful TDS employee to get me back to posting. For over two months I would be in the middle of a post and like magic it would all disappear. It was most aggravating but I promise I did not rant, rave or cry! I did not throw the machine out the windows (too expensive to replace). I called the kids!! My son was afraid my computer might be dying or the modem might be bad. My daughter bought over her modem and we tried that and like magic it worked BUT it had quit working at her house. She took the cord from my modem and her black box and went back to her house to experiment. My modem was dead and her cord was dead.

I reported what was happening to our local phone service (TDS) and they made a service appointment for the next day. My daughter did the same thing but I think she had a really bad experience with her service rep and . . . . Well let’s just say it wasn’t pretty and she got a service appointment for that afternoon. We are both back online!!!

Thank you to my technician, thank you to my kids for trying to help this old brain and her electronics and thank you to my blogging friends for waiting for me to return!!

Here’s a rose for your day from my garden:
