As of tomorrow I will have been without internet service for a week.One reason its taken so long is that the FairPoint tech support guy did not send the new wireless modem to my address. I don't know whose address it was - but it wasn't mine - so Fex Ex didn't deliver. I called them early this morning and gave them the correct address, AND told them to leave the package at my door. Instead, they left the package with the shop next door - and by the time I got home, the store was closed. So, here I am at 9:30 pm on a rainy night, behind the Jackson Public Library, typing this in my car.
If the modem doesn't work - that'll be the real cherry on top. I'm absolutely expecting the worst.
