Mounting Frustration

Our network has been down for more than 12 hrs and I can't reach anybody at tech support, so I am without any way to post a video. Our cable box was fixed yesterday morning (after a frustrating hour for the technician) and is out again this morning. The heat wave continues and they are expecting to have to have rolling blackouts today. All of California is burning up and even if I wanted to get out of town, there is nowhere to go.

Yes, I know that compared to so many parts of the world, this is small potatoes, but at the moment, I am on the brink of a scream. I can use my slow laptop and my AOL account, but this laptop is so antiquated that I can't even pick up G-mail because it won't connect to that service. So no email. No Internet. No TV.

This has all the earmarks of a very bad day.

I know the frustration so very well. I too, had technical problems. Only mine was with my telephone service. My phones were dead yesterday and today. Thank goodness for cell phones.
