Okay if you’ve sent e-mails or being expecting to hear from me via e-mail/twitter/facebook etc I’m sorry! My computer is wireless and the connection hasn’t been great of late so Glenn googled it and then reset the router as apparently that would do it. Except now the router won’t even register the internet even though it’s there *groan* He spent a good portion of Saturday growling and snapping as he tried to fix it but to no avail : ( and we can’t ring the 0800 number for help as it won’t accept cellphone numbers and our phone-line is through the internet and router, so not working *sigh*
It seems very wrong that a company that advertises its routers as a way of having a cheap phone line don’t have any method of contact other than an 0800 number that DOESN’T accept cellphones and an e-mail address. So we’ve sent an e-mail and otherwise I’ll ring them when I get to work on Monday (at which point they’ll probably say ‘do you have the router there?’ and I’ll have a screaming hissy fit at their STUPID set up). So in the mean time I will be able to snatch brief moments on Glenn’s computer (like when I posted this) and I’ll work on the Smashwords version again (still some errors ;p) and planning book two. Maybe I’ll practise with the whole ‘speech to text’ thing. I have this (probably somewhat romantic) notion that if I plot it out well I can just ‘tell’ the computer the story and it’ll write it for me… once we sort out some basic issues (like the difference between ‘and’ and ‘end’) and I’ll have the first draft knocked out by the end of Feb *grin* wouldn’t that be grand!!
Have a great weekend everyone and as mentioned please don’t be offended by my lack of attention – I’ll be in touch as soon as I can!
