Out Of Touch29 Sep 2001
We were offline for a day and a half due to a ISDN outage. Did anyone miss us?
More annoying than the Internet outage was the phone outage, since Mama and Christopher were away helping Oma Ruth move, and we needed to keep in touch to I could help unload the truck on this end.
It was not particularly comforting this morning when reporting the outage to Deutsche Telekom to be connected to a call center in Bavaria. Gruß Gott! Ack, just last week I submitted the application to switch away from the big pink T to an alternative local telecom provider. The main reason being that T-Online no longer offers an ISDN flatrate, and cannot provide us with DSL.
