Really?

So yesterday sometime our Internet was hacked into.

Now we have had a wireless router for years. Never had a password on it. I know I know, bad girl. But you have to understand I have always had to throw myself on the mercies of anyone available to connect, assemble, or fix anything that has to do with technology. It seems that in my house I am the guru of the group. Now thats sad let me tell you.

So there we are. This idiot decided to put a password on our internet....Really? I mean you couldnt keep just borrowing it? I was ok with that. Instead you had to mess with me. I had to actually spend time on the phone with tech people! I HATE doing that. The conclusion was that we had to get a new router. For some stupid reason we were not even able to reset the box.

After a miserable 24 hours of NO internet we are back up and running and all I can think of is this had better not happen again! We have a strong password on our wireless now and I have had a good strong adult beverage. Sigh all is well in or house again for now.

Must be the week for routers...we bought a brand new one today -
A bummer that someone messed around with your computer...glad to hear all has been restored and peace reigns again in the house!
I know I sure missed my old laptop while it was down...couldn't even access email from my iPod. Our newer computer is pretty much in my husband's domain and I have to "request" time! :o)
