Put all your frustrations in one basket.
(Why I love the internet part three.)
I was going to write about how giving Emily a bath led to the dismantling of my lounge and all the cushions smelling of vanilla deodoriser. However I have a new ISP and a new email address and even a new internet browser, so of course I haven't been able to update my log for over a week.
Telstra sent me a letter to say they were unable to offer me an internet service because I had applied to have it billed to my telephone account but my telephone account was not with Telstra. Oddly, my telephone account was with Telstra ten days before when they sent me a bill. I phoned Telstra and Mike told me I should ask Dingoblue to "release" me so my telephone account could be transferred to Telstra. I phoned Dingoblue and Kate told me she had no idea what Mike was talking about. She suggested I phone Telstra and ask about my internet service without mentioning the billing arrangement. I phoned Telstra and Shae activated my internet service instantly.
I upgraded my browser to Netscape 6.2 because I know I'll be online all week changing my email address, transferring bookmarks etc. so I'll take the opportunity to become familiar with the new interface. I have lost all the "&emdash;" from magicdog vs sydney
but See You Next Wednesday
looks worse than before; and I hope I don't have to reboot every time I want to disconnect.
