Analog error.

After spending an hour or so that I will never get back on the phone with my phone co., trouble-shooting the modem and everything else under the sun, I called my third party ISP (which I probably don't need--that was me, over-reading the instructions about how to set up DSL when I first got the magic box in the mail) to find out that I haven't been able to connect to the internet at home for the past 48 hours because . . . wait for it . . . I have not paid my bill.

I would start feeling like a dork except, wait, why didn't I get my usual e-mail from them saying, "Hey! your bill is due!"  So really, even though I'm a tad sheepish that I didn't think of this, I'm more uh, hello, third party ISP, YOU were delinquent.  Not me, YOU.

And I also now feel motivated to rethink this whole DSL provider/ISP conundrum, which I have been content until now to let alone because I'm lazy.  Lesson for third-party ISP, in case you're listening, which you're not, I know that now:  DO NOT INTERRUPT MY INTERNET ACCESS, or I will be forced to rethink the order of the universe.  And cancel my account with you.

In other news, I have ordered the smokingest iMac in the universe with upgraded RAM and lots and lots of hard drive to fill up with my stuff.  I will have it next week.  Beware of my computing power and general computing awesomeness.  Beware!

I'll have to keep this in mind when trying to figure out how to get my next gadget. Do you have an iPhone or any smart phone?
