No E-mail, No Life!
Blast CenturyTel, anyway! Or rather, CenturyLink. They recently merged with another company and changed their name from CenturyTel to CenturyLink. Which is probably the reason why I have been unable to get my e-mails for 4 days now. They are my phone and DSL provider and when I called them 4 days ago to find out why I can't download my e-mails, they said they were having server problems and "hoped to have it fixed sometime this weekend." Well, "this weekend" is almost over, and it's still broken.
I work from home, and e-mail is my lifeline. I can dispense with all the social e-mail for a few days and not miss it, but my work is another issue. No e-mail, no work. No work, no groceries. And so it goes. What's most annoying is that I have friends who also have CenturyLink as their ISP, and they are getting their e-mails! And they only live 20 miles away. I get around 100 e-mails a day, so I shudder to think what my inbox will look like once this problem gets fixed. So in the meantime, if you've sent me an e-mail and haven't heard from me, now you know the reason why!
I'm retired from freelance editing and living the good life. I love not working for a living! I live on a small farm in rural western Washington State where I reside with my dogs, cats, and horses. I have a warped sense of humor and I'm joyously silly most of the time.
