Still No Network Access From Home

I still need to borrow network access from friends and family when I visit because the cable provider just can’t be that much in a hurry to take my money. Someone came out yesterday to install a cable line into the apartment, but now I need to wait until September 7th for someone to come out to setup the services, which is not what I was told would need to happen. I don’t even have service yet and I already don’t like the company!

The last time I lived somewhere without network access, it was the early 90s. I feel much more cutoff from the world now that I know better.

At least I have cats to keep me company.

EDIT: On the other hand, rather than complain about the situation, I should mention that I can take advantage of the lack of distractions (email, IM, Wikipedia) to program. Now that the dust has settled a bit, I can actually sit at a computer for more than a few minutes at a time!

  • Hey GBGames,

    Sorry to hear that the internet tubes leading into your house have been damaged. I hope they fix it soon!

    I haven’t commented lately, but just want to say that I’m still lurking. I’ve been cheering you on since the days when I wanted to be an indie game developer. It’s tough.

    Today (Aug. 31) is Blog Day, apparently, and I have recommended you as one of my 5 blogs. I’m sure you’ll be flooded with one or two visitors!

    Cheers,
    Neil
