The powers that be have kept me away

In reply to Anacoluthon64's question, yes it has been a long time that I have been away from the forum, but I have checked-in from time to time to follow the threads whenever I have had access to the 'Net.

It's a long story (and mostly irrelevant) ... so leave while you can.

My participation was cut short in November when my dial-up modem ceased to work. No idea why. Perhaps "someone" wasn't happy with my postings on the "evolution words games" thread. ::)

When I applied for DSL I was given the last minute bonus that there were no free modems for the free modem promotion. I'd have to wait a few weeks but they would be available by christmas. No good, I was overseas.

When I got back I got the modem but my application had been automatically suspended and it took until mid January to get everything resolved.

I'm glad to see my absence was noticed. :)

"Bandwidth shedding," eh? :D

Yeah, I'm in a similar situation atm. Moved into a new place and I now have to wait for my internet connection to be moved. I have no idea when that will be...

I thought I'd just let you know about Telkoms new policy re: cable theft.....

I've been without a landline and adsl for 6 weeks now, >:( and have only now been informed by Telkom that they will notbe replacing the cables. Their new policy is that any areas deemed as being a "high risk" area with regards to cable theft will not have their cables replaced. It appears no-one can make a decision on whether to replace the stolen cables with fiber optics or underground cables, and no-one can tell me when this momentous decision will be made. All I've been told is that it may take months.
Wireless is out of the question because my area has zero coverage.

So, load shedding and no telecommunication - perhaps it's a "sign" that I should be doing my work instead of reading the forum ;D

It might not help, but it might make you feel better ;)

All I can say is that I never regret the decision to let go of telkom - makes life much less stressful. But then I do have coverage for wireless internet. What wireless providers have you tried?
