Cable Blip and Library Conundrum

24 03 2010

I thought I might not be posting today because my internet has been down since early this morning.  Kes and I tried unplugging the modem, etc. throughout the day, but no luck.  Finally, Kes convinced me to call Cox.  I don’t have a phone book, and no internet at the time, so I called 1-800-Goog411 which took an eternity because for some reason it couldn’t recognize the word “Fayetteville” even though it has many times in the past.  Then, I got put through to a disconnected Cox number.  Finally, I got ahold of Cox, navigated their automated menu, and spoke with a real human.  Immediately, all the lights on my modem lit up, and my internet was back… GAH.

I considered going to the library today, but talked myself out of it.  I would like to renew my library card, and check out volunteer opportunities, but I currently have books to read, and am not interested in checking out any more.    It just started bugging me that I would go to the library without the intention of checking anything out.  Is that weird?  Maybe I should go anyway in the near future.

The library is awesome! I don’t know about over there but here in WA we can checkout comics and all the libraries in a county are connected so if it’s not at one, you can get it from another (same with books and other library items). The best part is, I don’t even have to go in to browse, most of the county library websites are adequate enough that I can find what I’m interested in, request a hold, then whenever it’s available it just shows up. I hit the library on the way home from work and I have something new and exciting waiting for me. In other words, look at what other services your library has to offer. You can get books, magazines, comics, DVDs, CDs and audiobooks.
