Holy Cats...these SBC / D-link / AOHell folks sure take up some time!!!
Considering this all started at 3:30 a.m. this morning, I should count my lucky stars I'm done with at least part of these DSL woes by Noon!! LOL
Got a new modem from the SBC people to replace the existing DSL. Turns out the first two SBC tech- help people were less than fully helpful. The first tech support person was unable to fully get the DSL up and connected or access anything cause it was before 7 a.m.
Then, their next Tech support person got me connected - but only directly via a hard wired ethernet cable to the new modem (on my laptop that I use the Wifi D-Link router to regularly connect with). But the silly dolt neglected to "offer" to tell me thay have a second level of SBC support for routers to get to the "bridge" option - and told me AOL or D-Link would do that set -up. Bleh!!
Yet another 1-1/2 hours on various hold and tech-support avenues with AOL and D-link...I end up back to SBC tech support and FINALLY get the offer of second level HELP!! Sheesh.
And that gets me to round about Noon with access to my web browsers (and this post!! LOL)
Add in watering the lawn - it's my day for odd addresses. Now the washer folks were here too!! But only PART of the parts arrived...Bleh!! But...they have an appliance part-store some where round here...so they'll be back in bout a half hour to finish that!! I Hope. Yippee. (Day 15 without a washing machine.)
Then, THEN, I get to shop for Lindsey's 14th birthday and think on that "special dinner"...Oh JOY...she's Fourteen!!
Plus my Fur-kid, Sami, HATES her caged confinement - but she's mending - so she'll have to just *whine* like a "squeaky wheel" till she's 100% better.
*Whew* Enough from the life'o' Karen for ya ??? LOL at least for today....eh? :-)
So...I will post those Trivia answers - but I'm not sure what else I'll get to today. Laundry I hope. LOL
