Down But Not Out!

Last Update: November 15, 2016

Well, the dreaded internet crash happened, and I have only just got back online, and guess where I headed? To my beloved Wealthy Affiliates, of course! To tell you the truth, as it caught me at an extremely busy period, I just couldn't face the drama of repeated holds hanging onto the phone trying to get it sorted, so I just let it go for a while, only to find the portable wireless modem which was supposed to be on back order (for a couple of weeks) was no longer available and a whole different set up was recommended. Well, that really had me pulling my hair (er, ears) and I realized I would just have to roll with it and wait for yet a different modem and set up.

Another TWO hours on the phone tonight and I am up and running again, this time with a much faster broadband and back to ADSL after previously having a wireless only connection (not the best). So I feel the ordeal was worthwhile after all as things will go much faster and smoother going forward. In the meantime, I can see I missed all sorts of things, with my rank heading for the roof. I'm helping a friend with their book at the moment, so what with full time work as well, I won't be able to do much till the end of the year, but it's great to look in again and keep in touch at least. I'm amazed at the progress everyone is making. So much motivation and encouraging news here! This is the place to be.

Hi Nathan
Thanks for that - I learnt a bit about patience too... the poor Tech fellow had to figure out why we weren't connecting.... trial and error, but we got there. At least I could make myself a cup of coffee the while. Now my internet is just great :) Yup, slow and steady wins the race..............

Good result, Paul. Sticking with it seems to be the key. You are certainly showing the way. I just have to finish a project I am working on, and then get back to finishing Bootcamp! I'm right down near the bottom! But not giving up :)
