    Outage

    SELECTIVE LIGHTNING
    Confused Tech Weenies
    we sorted it out for them - sigh
    WALLPAPER: BACK ROAD TO GREAT FISHING
    -------
    .. A little lightning storm plunked some voltage down in West Yellowstone. No apparent damage was done and the neighbors loved the light show. We called our ISP and reported the lack of connectivity. They spent an hour on the phone with us and diagnosed the problem as a dead 2-Wire modem that we've had for 6 years. We suggested that the problem was their hardware, and that the lightning was not benign.
    .. They sent us a new router, (delay) and said they were sorry for the trouble. We installed the router and had the same lack of connectivity and the same router symptoms, (more delay.) Followup calls consumed over three hours over several days and additional delay. Finally, a tech weenie was sent to our little remote village and found a single, (JUST ONE _ours,) fried card in the server / router farm in the black building.
    .. Apologies all around from the ISP, (more delay.) Now we're up and connected. We did fish during the outage. We caught some too. Reports of long passed adventures are not our style. Self aggrandizing posts are not in the offing. There is still good fishing and catching in the neighborhood.
    .. We'll let you know.
