Grrr… Dead cable modem – mostly…

It looks like I’m gonna be mostly offline, at home, until Thursday that’s the soonest RR will be able to come out to diagnose why the internet connection is soooo bad…

In the meantime, sticking the cable modem in the freezer for a time works to get me on line for a bit. I’ve also McGyvered* a cooling fan, from an old dead Pentium 1 computer, onto the side of the cable modem… That seems to help too.

The important thing is that I had enough online time to download last night’s Doctor Who. Anyone else watch it yet? I had to pry my wife’s hands off of the chair… And the kids were yelling, “I’m scared of …” well, you’ll find out what…

(*McGyver was a TV hero in the US that could fix anything with some gum, a toothpick, and a 3 inch piece of string.)
