I try to post at least a little sumpin’ every day, but have not posted in 63 hours, due to another outage.
At about 1 a.m. Wedesday night (i.e., Thursday morning), while I was working on my Friday VDARE column, my Internet suddenly stopped working. As did the TV and the landline. After a little bitty storm.
The next morning (still Thursday), everything was still the same. Afriad tjat this was due being late paying my bill, I asked my next-door neighbor, and her service was out, too. (I neglected to ask her if she’d paid her bill.) And owing to this ‘n that, I hadn’t gone to Brooklyn to pay my pre-paid cellphone since November 11, so that didn’t work, either.
And so, Friday evening, with service still out, I headed out to the Borough of Homes and Churches, and paid it. Then I called Time Warner New York, where my girlfriend, the tele-bot voiced by the Democrat actress (yes, these jobs, like so many others, require a political loyalty oath) told me that my area was experincing problems.
Long story short, service was restored at 4 p.m. today.
P.S.: Sunday, February 3, 2013, 12:02 a.m. Once I got my cellphone working, I googled to find news stories about the outage, but found nothing. Once I got my Internet back, I repeated my Google search, but still found nothing, and didn't even find anything at Times Warner's own Web site. So, I guess the outage only affected the white West End of the Rockaways. Had the black East End been hit, you can rest assured that the residents there and their media allies would have raised holy Hell!
