Yesterday, just after I dropped my Instant, our new connection to NBN dropped. Like unto a stone.
Just. In the middle of finally enjoying myself with time to spare, the internet just shut off. Attempts to contact my Beloved about this were ignored - the phones still work, but 'work' is a negligible term when any messages are unanswered.
It looks like our service provider isn't to blame, but rather the new modem we got is faulty and service can be restored with a hard reboot - AKA "turn it off and turn it back on again."
This is not good enough for Beloved. They're headed off at some later point to get a new modem.
Today, I plan on little more than getting today's Instant done, finally sending off that copy of Adapting to Baen, and generally doing all the nothing I want.
