The internet was down.
That is not a new experience for me.
My internet in Melaque was prone to taking its own siestas. It would shut down around 2 in the afternoon and wake up again around 11. Each day. It really enjoyed its naps.
But I did not think I would experience a gap in service up north.
I did on Friday night. I came home to discover the internet had been dead for the full day.
After about an hour on the telephone with a service representative, we concluded the modem was dead. For once, I was happy to be an equipment renter, and not an owner.
The downside was I could do nothing on Friday. The cable office had closed. But i would open in the morning. Saturday.
And open it was. We left with a "new" modem in hand. And with a few quick steps, we were back on line..
But there was little joy. Somewhere in the process of getting back in the electronic queue, I completely forgot what I wanted to write about this weekend.
Instead, I will get some rest. Perhaps, I will pretend I am my modem is in Melaque. After a little sleep, it always runs better.
Maybe I will.
