My internet connection has been unreliable for almost a week now. We had Cox Communications (our provider) come out to see what the problem is. Apparently, something happened to the outside box that brings the cable into the house. They have to dig up the street in order to fix it. That involves getting a permit from the city, which takes at least 5 days. So, for now, we just have to deal with it. Every once in a while, the connection will come up. But it doesn't seem to last very long.
Kind of hard to run an Internet business when I can't even get to the Internet!
I have learned where there are a couple of "hotspots" around. There is one at all Peter Piper locations. On Monday, I thought I would go there with the laptop and let the kids play while I tried to get some work done. But, I found out that they don't open until 11 - I was there at 10! So, I just sat in the parking lot and at least checked my email. The kids weren't very happy with that arrangement though, so we didn't stay very long!
