This is a no photo blog. There's a reason. The modem on my desktop is gone, kaput, nada, black screen.
Picasa is loaded on that computer. Today I'm on the laptop that is held together with duct tape.
I'm upstairs using the wireless internet from the guest house. THAT is a good thing. After more "no shows" then I could count it is hopefully finally fixed.
Last week two men showed up and said it wasn't the modem. It was the line to the house which I felt it was also. They changed the line from the pole to the house and it worked for 24 hours. Then the modem went out and in and out and in.
An interesting thing has happened with Megacable. NOW all calls go to Mexico City customer service!
There they are very sympathetic and helpful and schedule someone in San Miguel to come to your house between such and such a time. Somehow I think THEIR modem or lines or something are not connecting to San Miguel Tech services.
Out of the blue on Friday when I wasn't here, a tech person showed up and said he wanted to check the modem. He did and declared it defective but he didn't have any with him. He would be back on Saturday.
You know the drill - not Saturday, not Monday.
In the meantime I'm calmly calling Mexico City and rescheduling every time they don't show...........finally on Monday night I again calmly told the young man that after two months of this I was losing my patience and to please put that in his notes.
Tuesday they were here prior to the time of the appointment. It's Wednesday and the internet is still working.
Blessings from somewhere!
In the meantime the engine light in the car came on - its at the shop. I had a flat tire yesterday morning when someone let the air out of one tire at the tianguis - tire fixed. The modem died this morning. When I get a car I'll go get another one. The toilet in the guest house stopped working - plumber came and its fixed.
I just thought in case people think I am bored and have nothing to do that you would like to know that life in Mexico can sometimes be just like the USA - stuff goes wrong and has to be fixed.
The good news is, other then Megacable, when I call a plumber or the gas man or the water man or the mechanic, they are here almost immediately. AND, everything is very inexpensive. Thank goodness.
Otherwise, I'd be flipping out.
