Changing My Supplier

Posted by Exile on April 27, 2008

This has nothing to do with drug pushers! The simple fact is that my present internet provider is costing a bit more than my wifes employers are willing to pay. We are amongst those that are lucky enough to have an employer who sees the internet as a personal fringe benefit and, therefore, we have a paid internet connection to use as freely as we want. Which is nice. Or at least, it was. Now they have found a cheaper alternative. The good news is, that the new connection is faster than the old one. Ah, the power of bargaining. We have x-amount of employees. How much for , whatever, service per employee?

Tomorrow I have to reconfigure the computer here and find out how to make the connection wireless. I have little idea of how this works but they have provided me with a do-it-yourself DVD-CD and a mountain of technical manuals which I won’t read and don’t understand. My wife is relying on my superior technical know-how to solve any problems. A very trusting lady. After all, she says, if you can change the light bulb in the halogen lamps, you can do this too.

This may be a blessing in disguise. I have long wondered about the wireless angle and thought that if I bought the laptop of my dreams, how would I hook it up from my living room when the internet outlet is in my den? Wi-Fi is the way forward.

There may be a short break in service tomorrow and who knows how long that may take? I don’t. The old connection disappears tomorrow at 16:30. After that, it’s up to me and my technical understanding.

For now then, a fond farewell and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Whenever that may be.
