Alive and kicking (and screaming) in Jakarta

We haven't fallen off the side of the earth, I just have no internet at home and my laptop's battery has died so I can't even go searching for some wireless!

Since the start of June we have had major problems with connectivity.....last week the internet provider actually told me to sign up with a competitor while I wait for them to fix their problem.
WTF......

With FastNet there are no boundaries to the amount of data you wish to upload and download. FastNet subscribers have continuous internet connection with no interruptions 24-hours a day, 7 days a week and 4 weeks a month beginning from the minute your connection is activated, without having to dial-up each time you wish to connect.

Bollocks!!!!!!!!!!

I am nearly at the stage of needing to medicate myself to stop myself from screaming like a banshee and having a major tantrum........mmmm I think I am developing a pattern .

The idiots at the First Media tell me everyday to refresh my modem and restart the computer....hello this doesn't work....there is a problem......Of course I am still paying for the privilege of speaking to the customer service team twice a day and not having internet access...

My next scheduled rant will be about my 20 month old laptop and its completely dead battery...that is unavailable to purchase in Indonesia as it is too old...................annother WTF moment.

One of the things I will not miss is the hit and miss internet! Guaranteed to make you totally crazy in 3 minutes or less.
