At some point after noon today, my Mac Mini decided not to connect to the Internet. I went to the living room and got on Cliff's laptop; it connected to the Internet just fine, thank you very much. So did my Ipad.
I kept checking my own computer; no luck.
A couple of hours later, I tried logging on to Cliff's computer again. OK, now it wasn't connecting either.
I turned off the power to our DSL modem because sometimes that helps. Turned it back on, turned on my computer. Nothing, on any computing device.
So, I have about three days left on the ATT time I bought for the Ipad. When all else fails, I have that.
But not this time, because ATT wouldn't connect me either.
Is there some giant piece of aluminum foil over my house that won't allow the Internet to reach me?
A half-hour ago, I finally reached the Internet and farmed my Farmville farm. Almost as soon as I got that done, the connection failed and I was, once again, without Internet. Oh, but this time my Ipad connected by way of ATT.
And now? Everything is working. I don't know why, and I'm not going to waste time wondering. All I can say is this: If you don't hear from me for a day or two, blame it on my Internet connection.
