Blogging? from home? you jest!

I just spoke to the most wonderful woman in the whole world, the lady at the new phone company. It's not like Verizon ever did anything to me, nothing particularly evil, but seriously if you just called Verizon would they know your name? I called to change our address. The address we waited so long to get, was in fact, wrong. The town called us a few days after I sent the forms to the phone people to say "Whoops, that number we gave you is totally wrong". The phone lady said "Oh, he gave you the wrong address...of course it was him". And so she changed it and then she said "by the way, I put through your work order yesterday and you should have service when you get home". Excellent. We, read Matt, have to connect the wires and such but if I really wanted to I could do my NaBloPoMo duties from the front yard. In a parka.

Congrats on getting an address and possibly phone service.

No comment on potential broadband at home. Don't want to jinx it.

highly unlikely, can you do wireless with dial up?

It's possible, but not without several animal sacrifices.

You *might* be able to get DSL out there. Depends how far you are from the phone company's central office. dslreports.com should be able to tell you.

I think animal sacrifice would be the practical option.
