We’ve reached the point in NaBloPoMo where I suddenly realize it’s 8:00 at night, I haven’t written anything, and by god, I cannot give up. I just can’t. I caved last year and I’m doing so well!!
So I asked Jen what I should write about and she said my crappy internet.
That’s not really an interesting story. But my internet is crappy. Super crappy. And I’m pressed for time, so this is what you get.
I’ve been trying all week to upload videos from last weekend’s interviews. Dropbox told me that ONE video would take…wait for it…wait…18 hours. EIGHTEEN. Ten plus eight. To upload ONE video.
I spent Emma’s naptime on Tuesday making phone calls and pricing plans and figuring out what we can do so that we’re not rocking what basically amounts to dial-up over here.
My crappy internet is going the way of the Dodo on Saturday. I’m selling my soul to Comcast for internet that will be 25x the speed we currently have. Yes. That’s the correct number. (I think.)
Once that happens, I might not even know what to do with myself. Probably go nuts and stream videos while also uploading them and surfing the web all willy nilly. Maybe I’ll get crazy and also have cookies!
It’s problematic when your job is ONLINE and you have dinosaur internet. And not T-Rex internet. Like, dinosaur slug internet. Internet so slow I sound like a robot when I try to do a Google hangout from home so I end up in the library lobby with head phones in getting weird looks from people taking trips to the restroom.
(Sidenote: When I did that Google hangout, which lasted for about an hour, the same man went to the bathroom 4 times. That’s not normal.)
Anyway. All of this changes on Saturday and we’ll join the land of regular people internet speeds. Finally. Thank god.
This is all Jen’s fault.
