Let the past sleep, but let it sleep in the sweet embrace of Christ, and let us go on into the invincible future with Him. (Oswalt Chambers)

Disappointment

Last week we got a flyer that read, "BELIEVE IT - High Speed Internet for 14.99 a month" plus many other tempting details from Frontier, our land line provider.

I had visions of being able to enjoy myself on Ravelry, reading my favorite blogs in one-tenth the time it takes me now, reading news articles without playing Spider while they load, being able to watch videos online, and other internet delights. I would have willingly paid big bucks for all this.

Using the link on the Frontier flyer, I was prompted to consider several plans and I wasted many dial-up minutes there figuring it all out.

When it came time to subscribe, a screen with big letters popped up: "Internet not available in your area." I'm still pouting. Frontier will not be easily forgiven for their undeliverable promise.

That is so disappointing! I have lived in a rural area with dial-up so know how truly awful it is. Have you ever thought about getting a satellite server?

Well, poop!

You must have the patience of a saint--you put such beautiful things online, it's a shock to learn that your service is still in the dark ages. In that case, I thank you all the more for my favorite blog.

Grrr, I usually say. It's happened to me, too. (Even though I consider anywhere in Michigan more populated than anywhere in New Mexico!)
Hope to see a more recent "jaw" picture to compare with the first day!
