Damn you Internet!!!

I woke up this morning to discover there is a problem with my Internet service.

After exhaustive attempts to correct the situation both through my ISP tech-support and Apple support we’ve concluded I have a working airport express router and a working modem

However, I still cannot connect to the Internet.

My ISP will be sending someone to check the lines to and from my house. But the technician won’t be here until Tuesday morning.


As a result, I will have one heck of a time posting anything. I have Internet service through Verizon wireless, but the screen on my iPhone is so damn tiny, it won’t be easy posting.

On top of everything, all my hard work to minimize my cursing went clean out the window. And on a Sunday! Apparently I am still capable of uttering the F-word repeatedly.

And guess what?

Cursing didn’t help.

I might have to go to my satellite Patriot Retort office (a.k.a. mom and dad’s house) in order to get some work done tomorrow.

In the meantime, if inspiration hits me, I’ll work from my wee little iPhone screen.

Oh, delays, delays.

      Have you ever tried to write an entire column on the teeny screen of an iPhone? It’s a royal bitch.

    Can’t you upload files from your computer to your iPhone?

      And this will make the teeny screen of my iPhone bigger how?

    C’mon, Dianny. Admit it. You broke the internet. Confess.

    Personally, I would never buy another one, but Logitech sells bluetooth keyboards for around a hundred bucks. I used one the entire two weeks I owned an iPad. It should work with an iPhone. They suck, but it’s better than typing with your elbows.
