We Are Together Again....

I hope I fooled you into thinking that I've resolved my personal sexual problems! No such luck, my personal life still SUCKS. However, I got the BIG problem resolved, my DSL circuit is now back on line and I once again one with the world.

I got a supervisor from the help desk on the phone this morning at about 10 AM. After explaining the problem again (this makes, let's see four times since yesterday morning) he said he would go straight to the ISP (MCI/uuNet). One hour later the help desk calls me back and says that the ISP can connect to my router from their operations center so the problem couldn't possibly be in their circuits. I patiently disconnect my modem and try to connect via the DSL circuit and as if by magic, there it was healthy as before.

I now have another piece of the DSL puzzle though. There is yet another player in the game. MCI/uuNet subcontracts all of their DSL circuit maintenance out to an organization called DSLNet. What's more, I now have another Circuit Number that defines the my DSL connection.

True to form, no one individual or even one company will take responsibility for the outage. Wouldn't it be nice if people would own up to their mistakes? When I screw up, and I do from time to time, I am the first to admit it. That doesn't make my boss very happy but if I'm at fault I don't want someone else taking the fall because of me.
