I'm Still Alive!

Ok let me first start off by saying that I hate computers as much as I love them!

I finally got my new Dell Inpiron 1521 nearly a month after I ordered it with grand hopes of in stalling a router on the DSL connect in the house to that I could have access in the 5th (yup we still are living in the RV because the house in MI hasn't sold yet). Well 2 1/2 weeks & 3 routers later I still can't get a signal in the RV. After spending 45 mins on the phone with Dell last night for the guy to tell me that I would need to pay Dell $130 for him to tell me what to do because I hadn't sighed for Dell on Call (at $250 for 4 calls that are only good for a year you got that right!!!) I had had it. Then like a blessing from God I found the problem! Only for my hopes to be smashed again when the the 3rd router also would not reach (we are only talking 175 feet & the router should have gone 600!!! What!!!??). So I reconnected the first & cheapest router that at least lets me connect in the house. I guess we are in some kind of Internet black hole or something. Sigh. Just my luck.

So I will be able to use my computer to surf the net again although not as often or how I had envisioned, but I guess that it is better than nothing, right? Maybe?

I hope to start posting again soon. I noticed today that both Simplicity & New Look have some of their Fall patterns up. I think that will be my first post & with any luck soon.

I am still trying to get through the 2 month backlog of e-mails so bare with me. I hope that all is well & Blogland & hope that I will be posting & catching up on what all you have been up to soon!

Girl, I feel your pain. I've finally got the joy of broadband where I am. My best friend 6 doors down had it but I couldn't get it. What is that. I now have the joy and speed. I'm sending speedy vibes to you now. xx
