Don't blame me OR AOL!

If I’m not online for a couple of days, don’t blame AOL.  

Lately, I’ll be surfing along happily, then suddenly time out.  I’ll look at my DSL modem, and the the DSL and Internet lights are off.  Can’t connect under those conditions!

I called the tech, and he said he’s getting error messages from his end having to do with a phone not being hooked to a filter.  Could be a problem with the phone in Cliff’s shop, because the phone in the house has a filter.

We shall see.  

My Internet worked all day today until about 2:30 this afternoon.  Then it only worked sporadically.  I’m typing this on Word and will try to sneak it onto my journal during the next few seconds I have connection.

Seems to me if that were the problem, it wouldn't have been working all this time.  But what do I know?

Oh, they are sending a technician Friday morning. 

Cliff and I are getting a new dryer tomorrow, since my old one shot craps.

hope you get your problem solved. I know it's frustrating.  I had to buy a new dryer last year.  I just hated it, but I had to have it.   Glad Cliff is doing fine. I think it's just too darn HOT for people to function.   Anne

Maybe this all has something to do with the lightning strike you had recently ?

All phones have to have a filter.
