Test for Technology

Our internet has been sporadic for several weeks.  Last week, it completely quit so we had to have a Comcast technician to come and repair it on Saturday afternoon.  He replaced the modem, and the internet worked fine.  Until Monday morning. 

We called again, and another technician came late yesterday.  He checked all the connections outside.  He found that the squirrels, who apparently own this place, had chewed the cable lines almost in two where they connected at the pole.  He replaced everything necessary, and we are good to go this morning.

This just goes to show that no matter how smart we get, there are always unanticipated things that can so wrong, like hungry squirrels.

I'm guessing the squirrels are tired of sunflower seed.
