ISP woes

My posting level has been very low for the past few days.

Because I live in a fairly isolated area, I have only one access number in my local area for my ISP (AT&T Worldnet). This number has not worked very well for the past few days. I get low connection speeds, if I can connect. When I do connect, service is very unstable. (A comment at another blog earlier tonight was interrupted by disconnects twice). In addition, I cannot send e-mail, because it is all routed through the worldnet e-mail server.

Hopefully, the problem will be fixed soon, and I will be posting more often. The weekend is usually my most prolific posting time, and I have a lot to say about the court decisions of the past week.

I have problems with my ISP when it rains. It's probably the lousy weather protection on the phone wires and switch in the area.

It *has* been raining here, but this is the Pacific Northwest. It *always* rains here. I would think that they would take measures to ensure uninterrupted service, if they know that certain weather conditions are prevalent.

Then again, I am trying to apply logic to a business that is not known for making intelligent customer service choices.
