The Hughes net Tech Team ready for service!
We’re back!!! Yahoo!!!! Back online!
Gosh, I missed everyone. It’s weird… not having this lifeline is just well, not very comforting. I can go without a TV for months, but the internet has just become so very much a part of day to day life, it’s like my morning ritual and a resource library at my fingertips… it’s our livelyhood as well as a contact point for friends and family. It’s just useful and entertaining, and when it’s gone for a week, you notice!
It took lovely Hughes.net 1 week, 2 techs, 2 visits and 5 hours time to simply repoint our equipment to a new satellite after they lost their use of another. Pretty exciting. Actually, I’m very surprised that they have not met with foul play for their crappy customer service. I really had to behave the first time they were out, when they couldn’t get it going and said they would be back within a week. A week? A WEEK?
I mean, it’s not like I had gone to a corner gas station for a transmission rebuild… I was asking to pump gas. The reason they are there. The MAIN reason! I mean, wouldn’t you think FINDING a satellite to hook up a person would be pretty much the main task of a satellite internet provider? It’s not like I wanted some complex Wi-Fi set up in the sheep shack! Haha… shesh. But they could not accomplish that without a whole lot of effort and drama. Just crazy.
So I’m praying now that everything is okay. It seems to be working and everything seems tolerably quick enough. I sure have a lot of catching up to do!!!
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas… we sure did.
