long silence

Why haven’t I posted in a while? Because Telstra can’t seem to get its bigpond broadband service working at home: I’ve just been told it will be another week before they can send out a technician. Thanks, Telstra.

  1. Well, look, mate, they can’t possibly turn you on AND turn off CDMA at the same time. Besides which, has your arm been punctured by a shark while your broadband was off?

    No, I didn’t think so.

  2. It’s certainly enabled me to get a lot more done around the house.

    I guess my point is, that if there *was* a shark, then how would I blog about it from home?

  3. I’ve heard that asking to speak with the manager when you call Telstra and then telling *them* that you’re looking at switching providers can often produce positive results.

    Of course, there’s the moral dilemma of deception or of chopping and changing service providers (which is less of a moral dilemma these days, given the lack of bilateral loyalty in utility provision in recent years)…
