My broadband issue is fixed

So earlier today a guy from my broadband tech support team came out to my house to fix ongoing issues with the connection. It kept dropping. This morning, it was down for hours. I wasnt sure why this was happening. I have Efibre, so it really shouldnt happen at all. He looked at it, and then he said he’d test my line. He did that, and it looked like my upload speed wasnt set high enough, so he reset that first. Then he tested again, but there were still faults on the line, so he said he’d look at the phone sockets, and so he did. And what do ya know! The phone sockets were hit by lightning! Thats what he told me! When we had the last storm lightning must have fried them! So that is why the connection was dropping, so he installed all new phone sockets for me, and woohoo we’re back in business, everythings fine again! I was never so glad than when he fixed it, you should’ve seen me this morning when it was down, I had no clue what to do with myself, I literally was twiddling my thumbs! I could read, and I did, but that was about all I could do. He was a very nice guy too, very chatty and we had a good chat as he worked. So at least its fixed now. He gave his number to me just in case there are any more issues. There shouldnt be though. I was just stunned when he said the phone line was fried! I never expected that to happen!

Omg such bs with my ISP

I cannot believe it. My ISP sucks. They really fucking suck.

I tried to create a second email account, with the ISP I get my broadband from. I have one email address with them, but I cannot remember my password to get in, as its a very old address. I also cant remember the security questions the answers to them I mean. I did set it up years ago, like 12 years ago. So how am I supposed to still remember that info?

I am able to get in to my email account now, but only because the password is saved on my computer. But if I ever have to resubmit the info on a new machine, I wont be able to do it. So I thought, to save time, I’d just sign up for a new account.

How wrong I was! I cant do it! I tried googling th einfo to do it. No joy. I tried ringing tech support, and after a very long wait I got through to some guy who didn’t even know whether it was actually possible to do this or not. He had to go ask a supervisor.

It isn’t possible to set up more than one email addy with this ISP service. He told me go set up a gmail account. Which I would, but that was also proving difficult for me.

I am beyond pissed. Its so annoying. All I wanted was to get a new email address, a simple thing or it should be, right?

wrong!

Anyway, I do have a back up so will use that one for now. I should try to use the same password for everything shouldn’t I? That way I wouldn’t ever be stuck or locked out of places.

I’m trying to transfer all activity over to another account now, and gosh but I have given my email addy out to so many places, including audible, amazon, my phone and electric companies, my company who collects my bins, etc. So so many places to go change it at.

I’ll get there I’m sure. I’m just in a bit of a frazzled mood tonight.

Broadband wos

so I’ve had ongoing issues lately with my internet. its been acting up. disconnecting for a few mins, then coming back on again, this could happen up to 4 times an hour. not all the time, but every few days at least. so a technician from my ISP provider is going to come out on Thursday, thank god! im paying enough for the damn thing. I want it to work! my tv also uses the internet and it wont work without it. so hopefully on Thursday it will be solved. its a pain that it keeps going off! I depend on it and I need it. I need it to work!
Im just frustrated with it. I am also frustrated with the customer service people who answer the phone! The last time I called the lady only wanted to know if I am blind how do I cope? How do I manage? what business is it of hers? She’s supposed to be helping me fix my internet not asking me a ton of personal questions!
When I told her I couldn’t see colours and I needed more of an explanation she didn’t know what to say or do. She said well if you cant see colours then I don’t know what to tell you to do! Talk about having no disability awareness training! She obviously had no clue and so I said ok then whatever, and I just hung up.

Update on my issues with wordpress!

I have an update on the wordpress issue, you know the one where it is asking you to log in on certain sites to comment and do other stuff?
My friend sent in a support ticket to the wordpress team, and so did I!
Well the support team got back to us!
They said to clear the web history on the computer, clear the cookies, and the info on what sites you visit, and then go back to the wordpress site and try to comment or do what you want to do!
That seemed to work! Not sure about my mac yet as havent tried it on the mac, but it works on my phone and laptop!
Yay! So glad its resolved! Just passing on the info in case any of you want to try it out!
If you google how to delete the web history and cookies on whatever browser your using you’ll find instructions on how to do it!
I hope you have the same success that I did!

#JusJoJan prompt 22nd January 2019, curiosity

Your prompt word for JusJoJan today is, curiosity!

Well curiosity is a big thing around here this morning. I’ve been having a lot of fun asking Alexa questions, that I am curious about the answers too.
Its amazing what you can find out! I asked her what the most dangerous animal in the world was, and she told me the mosquito! I asked her how do peanuts grow, and she told me some very interesting facts about peanuts growing underground and not on trees!
Then I decided to ask her for the weather in some different countries! I want to move to florida, or australia since they are having nice sunshiny weather! We’re having 1 degree c temps here in ireland! A high of four degrees c today and a low of 1 degree c!
Nitro was also being very curious this morning, curious about what was out in the yard, he had to investigate. I couldnt get him back inside for ages! I had the back door open and I was calling him but would he listen to me? Noooo! He has a mind of his own that silly puppy!

JusJoJan prompt 21st jan. 2019 echo!

Your prompt word for today 21st january is echo!

I love my amazon echo. I have the echo dot. I love it because it makes things so accessible to me, being that I am blind!
Alexa is sooo cool! I know people might think its freaky, or weird. Or that its freaky that she’s always listening to you. I dont really think about it too much, otherwise I might not want to use it!
I love how I can ask her things like give me a quote, a joke, or a recipe! And she does it and she’s really accurate!
I love how I can ask her for the traffic in my area, the weather for anywhere in the world, or any question actually. There are also skills you can enable to make her more intelligent!
You can listen to music, read your books, set alarms, make lists, shop etc. Its amazing and awesome what you can do!
I have two echo dots now. One is in my kitchen and one is in my bedroom.
I am so glad I bought them! They have made my life much easier and I really enjoy learning about the different skills and each week alexa adds new skills too which is nice! She’s always learning to be more intelligent!
