OK - I have the Vonage phone system - runs through my broadband. This morning I had a couple of silly problems while talking with my cousin. No big deal just silly.

Then - I'm trying to do a little reading and I lose my internet. Well - it's there but not reading to my PC. So I run all the diagnostics and....nothin'

I'm starting to panic. I tried my phone. Of course - nothin'. Hmmmmmm

I rebooted, redirected, resigned. Then I decided to reboot the phone cable.

Nothin'....nothin'.....nothin'......lights still blinkin' - not a good sign.

Then I tried the phone. Voila. It works. I try to access the internet - WooHoo. Nothing looks different. It just works now.

I'm gonna have to get a cell phone. Just in case this happens again. It just feels much more satisfying when you can bitch out the service people while you're actually frustrated and pissed off rather than after you've had a chance to calm down.

Yea. venting while angry is much more satisfying then venting when you've calmed down.

Maybe you just need a digital voice recorder so that you can shout into it and play it back for the service rep :-)

I've noticed the phone service does that around here when it's really windy...not sure why.

Did you throw a ball bat through your slidin' glass door? If so, before you got the service, or after?
