Asta 2

GPB

Today is the anniversary of the day we were blessed with the presence of one Ms reckleslinguist. And it’s one of those special birthdays too. I won’t say which other than it falls somewhere between the 21st and 40th. ;)

I was fortunate to meet Ms Linguist after writteninstars dragged her kicking and screaming into chat one evening. It was so she could partake in our post-‘Alias’ discussion (back when it was really worth discussing). She was Ms Stellerlight (or close to that spelling ;p ) back then. A name chosen about five minutes after seeing it painted on the end of a boat featured on ‘Alias’. She also became a poster on That Board That Shall Not Be Named (though was smart enough to avoid the high drama) and followed the rest of us to the relative tranquility of LJ. Where she posts far too little. ::pokes you:: I’ve always considered myself fortunate to have met WIS and even more so that she was generous enough to share her friends with me so they may become my own.

Ms Linguist has many fine qualities – kindness, generosity, intelligence, wit, humor, and a gift for the double entendre. Plus, she’s cute as a…bee. ;) Her only failing may be that she has yet to succumb to the allure of Jamie Bamber Battlestar Galactica. Hey, if addicted2goo can be turned, so can you missy!

I hope you have a marvelous birthday. Just don’t end up joining one of your friends down there on the evening news. ;-)

Happy Birthday!!!!!

The DSL, It Is Working!

After a looooooong struggle. I should have known the installation process went way too quick. The disc supposedly finished it's job and told me I was ready to surf the net. Not so fast there Mr Disc. I couldn't get a page to load. So, I call the 800 number and am helped by Rob who admits that sometimes the discs skip a step. Allrighty then. He proceeds to walk me through the set up process and in about ten minutes I am online. Wheeeee! After I get off the phone I realize that the icons for various links and services are no where to be found. I call back. I speak to Lee (insert your own joke here) and he attemps to help me download some software to rectify this. Accept, it's not working. After trying a couple more things, he admits defeat and transfers me to Level 2 support. At this point I feel like Sydney Bristow. I'm also transferred to some idiot who seems to think I know zilch about the net even though I have to tell him he's asking me to click on the wrong link. :p Idiot is stumped and transfers me to John. John knows what he's doing and even helps me set up things that the disc could not. Plus, my phone died in the middle of our conversation and he called me back on my cell. And stayed with me until the computer rebooted and I made sure everything was working. So, accept for the one idiot, I had excellent customer service.

Who knew setting up DSL could be so exhausting? Now I need to take a shower and relax until BSG comes on. And thanks to a guest star tonight, I'm actually looking forward to 'Atlantis'. :O
