"D" is for Dish

The source of my joy and frustration...
As in the thing that my internet needs to well... let me connect to anyone not in my immediate family.

As I said last week, I have limited options for internet. I had run off dial-up for years, but with two connections and three people wanting to use the computers... yeah that didn't work well.

So no landline broadband, bugger all mobile signal, that leads to one thing...

Satellite!

People are still stunned on how much we pay a month to hook up to the web (I'm stunned, to be honest). But yeah... three people, remember? And two of them aren't at home during off-peak time, that's when I go crazy and get my work done before 2PM. Or I would, if I had the blasted internet!

  2. Ouch. I suppose that makes me thankful to live in the middle of town. Granted, our house seems to be in a dead spot for cell reception, but at least we do have internet.

    Best of luck with that.

    1. Heh. Our cell reception is a little spotty, too. A bit better than a few years back when it was dead.
