Having major withdrawal symptoms at the moment – a Telstra tech cut our phone line yesterday afternoon while in the process of trying to fix a long running problem with our next-door neighbours phone lines. Unfortunately he couldn’t fix ours – we now have the same problem our neighbours do. Apparently we share the same cabling up until it almost reaches our house … it is all very old and brittle, and has broken.
I’m currently sitting in the car park of McDonalds in Cremorne using their Telstra WiFi hotspot – but only because Gloria Jeans in Crows Nest only has free WiFi until 7pm. I might have to go in there tomorrow and use it for a while.
It was supposed to be a busy week getting things finished before Christmas – but I can’t get any work done without a phone line or internet connection!! I would buy a wireless broadband card, but it’s way too expensive to justify for the rare occasions I would use it.
Telstra have promised the line will be fixed by midnight Thurday at the latest … aarrrgghh … 3+ days without connectivity – how am I supposed to run a business like that ?????
