Goodbye. For Now. (I Hope)
I think I mentioned in an earlier post that we were moving. The time has now come. Tomorrow, even. The thing is we do not yet have internet at the new place. Where we are moving to is out in the country and our current provider does not provide service to it. The people who just moved out of it had AT&T but I’m running into trouble with them. It seems that they only provide so many ports to a given area and since this particular are is rural they don’t provide very many. In fact they are currently full.
I’ve explained to then that the house, up until yesterday, had service with them and that I should surely be able to grab that port. They agree but apparently can’t make that happen in a quick-like manner. The first two people I talked to indicated that I cannot be put onto a waiting list or anything of the kind but would simply need to keep calling back everyday until their system recognized the open port (and hope that nobody else grabs it in-between calls.) The fella today said that he would put in an order for me and that he would give me a call back when he had more information. The way he explained it was that the engineers would get the order and try to figure out it and when it would be available. He even said that even if the port was open they may decide that the current users are using up too much bandwidth and that they would not give me the port.
Anyways, I’m still seeing how that plays out. I’ve looked at satellite internet, but what I’ve found so far is very prohibitive in terms of bandwidth allotment. If worse comes to worse I’ll do that but that would essentially shut down this site. So cross your fingers that AT&T calls back and we can get in quick or the Midnight Cafe may have to close its doors permanently.
Obviously I’ll keep you guys posted.
