So I was minding my own business yesterday when suddenly! NO DSL. Hm. We have a good internet provider and when we had the DSL installed it required AT&T to run new lines blah blah techy techy blah. So. Look outside and an AT&T truck is there with a guy working. We figured he was fixing something. He drove away. No DSL.  ???  Another truck came by, but was unable to assist without there being a trouble ticket from the internet provider. Trouble ticket? The internet provider did nothing wrong. We called them anyway. They have to check everything before we can have an AT&T trouble ticket. Finally we got a call that AT&T would be out Saturday between 8am and 8 pm. Whaaa?  >:( >:( >:(  Fast to destroy, slow to repair.
Nevertheless, an AT&T person just showed up. The other guy thought our connection was not in use and took it apart or something blah blah techy techy blah. The person today will apply labels so this does not happen again.

did youse miss me hmmm?

YES, WELCOME BACK THE INTERNET MISSES YOU! :D

Irritant of the week:  Hack

It used to be that hack was someone breaking into a software system to do harm, steal information, or even just for fun.  Then it began to include getting into one's own technological device and adjust it to do something beneficial it wasn't originally designed to do.  (Before that it was a lousy sports player, or a nasty cough).

Now, it's used for anything new or different, or just something that person hadn't thought of before.  Now we ''hack'' our eggs if someone suggested we cook them differently, or read about various ''life hacks', which mostly turn out to be things or ways to do things that the 23 year old who wrote the article never heard of before.  Those aren't ''hacks''.  No one is breaking into anything or doing an unauthorized upgrade. 

This has been around for awhile, but I'm seeing more and more of it.  Dang, please try to find a different way to try to sound cool.

Wow PB. Thank you! You should write an article (maybe a listicle?) about how to hack a good post!

And Absolutely!
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

@PB Are you sure you want to waste your irritant of the week on this one? You so love to bitch and moan, I guess I was just expecting a bit..more? Oh well, there's always next week. *shrug*

Seems to me you're the cranky little puss. Guessing you hadn't had your morning penis coffee yet. @PolkaDot   Is Aunt Flo in town?

Darling @KSM32  , if Aunt Flo is stopping you then I’m not the one being the puss. Just saying.
