Mondays get a bad rap, but I don’t hold grudges against them… usually!
Monday started off very Monday-like: the back-light went out on one of my computer monitors I use for work. After years of working with two monitors, working with one felt like shifting from email to chiseling messages on stone tablets. I have another monitor in place now, so that crisis was resolved.
But technology wasn’t done with me yet. It turns out the monitor was like an appetizer… just prepping me for the main course.
On Monday, I also experienced increasing issues with my internet connectivity. I thought maybe it was my router because I bought it about ten years ago. I bought a new one and was relieved when the configuration went smoother than I expected. My joy would be short-lived. The connection held for about half an hour and then my computer wouldn’t connect to the internet again.
Anyway, after several hours of fiddling with it, talking to our internet provider and talking to support for the router, I decided to try my husband’s computer. I’ve been using it for nearly two hours and it hasn’t dropped the internet connection once.
I think it’s my computer. If I don’t lose connection on my work computer tomorrow, I’ll know for sure.
Not to sound like a melodramatic teenager, but this is tragic! Okay, that was an exaggeration… but it is going to cramp my blogging activity until I get this fixed. (I know I’m behind on everything… responding to comments, reading subscriptions, visiting new subscribers… aaack!)
Please be patient with me. I’ve had a week of Mondays and I really need a Saturday 🙂
