Fingers crossed, but it looks like they got our internet repaired. It went down completely last night and was still off when we got up this morning. Mac rebooted it and it took off. I can even get to AMAZON!!! The world of American commerce is saved.
When we went out to walk this morning we saw one of Century Link's repair trucks leaving their little building and Mac talked to the driver who said they'd been working all night, a new piece of equipment had been put in and now they had to "plug" in about a 100 more subscribers.
That was about 3 1/2 hours ago and things are still whizzing along.
I had bought some music from Amazon before all the trouble started, but had been unable to download it because of our problems with connecting. This morning all 15 of the songs downloaded in record time. That's a relief.
We pay quite a few of our bills online and it's a problem when you're not sure of the connection you have. I hate writing checks.
It had reached the point where I was even looking into Comcast to replace Century Link even though Comcast is the most hated company in the country. So, as I said, fingers crossed.
