wifi troubles

today was the second day in a row that our internet inexplicably went out around 10:30ish (and a call to the company revealed both times that it was a "neighborhood issue" and would "be resolved by 1:00," making me think this was a planned service issue. of course we didn't get any warning, but at least today they sent me an email - while my wifi was out! lol - saying my wifi was out. sort of amusing, but I almost went over my data for the month. ergh.) 

not sure what the heck they were doing, but I'm grateful it was only out for a short time each day. 

the internet really is an amazing, marvelous thing.
