Christmas is saved! We have internet!!
Today the UPS guy appeared with our internet/phone/cable/tivo box, and this afternoon it started the blink of joy.
In theory, we have another phone number. However, I don’t really know what it is. We are on skype though, and will be using it to call home on Christmas day.
We’ve already been using it to keep in touch with Nick while he’s in NV. When we were at the hotel we gave it a shot, but it came out looking like this:
The new connection is at least one order of magnitude faster than the old connection, and Nick now looks like a person. He has eyes, and a nose and everything.
