Net Loss

Published 10 years, 11 months ago

Five minutes after I should have left for the airport to catch my flight to Boston and An Event Apart, I finally got the DSL service back, four and a half days after it went dark.  After a few minutes of frantic testing and configuration to make sure it would work for Kat in my absence, I blew out the door.

Guess what’s broken in my hotel room.


  1. I live right behind the marriot and have an open network that is up when my computer is on — let me know if I can help.

  2. Magic Fingers?

    Seriously though…have you been abusing your broadband karma?

    The High-Speed Gods™ have not been smiling upon you lately….

  3. Well, it’s either your toilet or your TV remote. Those would be my two guesses.

    :-)

  4. ROFL!!!!

    Man, they don’t make those coin operated beds like they used to.

  5. I really enjoyed your presentation at AEABoston, one thing: you should get an RSS feed going for your blog!

  6. nevermind – i am dumb.

  7. No kidding! I’ve had many of the same problems. Rebooting works occasionally, but more often than not, the laptop just becomes a DVD player for the boy.

    I’m going to argue at the front desk when it comes to pay.

  8. Oh no! That is some seriously bad juju!

  9. Eric – Would you consider posting your CSS Jedi bar graph example?

  10. David: thanks for the offer. I was able to use the actual event wifi during breaks and such, so I was okay.

    Chuck: there’s an earlier version of the vertical bar graph in css/edge; the updated version will be made available as well.
