Wordle – Dr. Surf – a rant poem -December 30, 2014

Oh this conceited android!
This stupid illeistic dude
full of peppy mischief …
(my mind begins to fizzle …
I spew … I strangle yes I gurgle -)
it tells me that my modem (IT)
has gone off-line,
crashing me into a cyber cess-pit
at the intersection
between W.P.* and Blogger.

Up pops that draftsack ‘giggling’:
“your phone line is disconnected”
(though the lights are all aglow)
with that fixed quirky smile
its ridicule is plain …
I stammer, almost scream,
envisioning roughened bricks
or heavy chains of zinc
to beat in its electronic brain …

So, here I write enraged …
before this glowing screen
linked to this closed off ghetto
made of (uni)code
in heated human exasperation …

Then up it pops up once more …
Dr. Surf ** always smiling tells me
now (maybe) I can publish
since the modem’s back on-line
again.

I think it’s rather clear that since I got up this morning I’ve been having connection problems … this happens rather often lately and I can’t figure out what the problem is, since the phone company refuses to come out and look at their lines …  >:-(

Just a Note – November 21, 2014

Hello … I’m having connection problems and can barely write a post using this editor .. and I’ve got to keep things to a bare minimum (uploading photos is an odyssey).  The problem isn’t confined to one computer … so we’ve eliminated a virus attack to a specific computer … at least that’s good news.

My mail-box takes about 10 minutes to open an e-mail … my W.P.  reader won’t open properly (lots of html hash and little blobs where photos should be) so I’m thanking my stars and calling myself  lucky  that I’ve been able to do as much as I have today …

If you’ve commented and I haven’t answered you, please excuse me … I hope the problems clear-up as quickly as possible and I thank you for your loving patience.

I hope to see you tomorrow – Bastet (Georgia)
