Old Bloggers

Old bloggers never die, they just lose their connections. Our resources for internet services are rather meek in Santarem but the interest for using them is overwhelming, like everywhere in the world. The capacity of the telecommunications system and the servers can't keep up with demand ... but they keep signing on new clients as there were no limit. The result is an overloaded system, which reduces connections to the use of the messenger programs. Anything beyond that, like posting new blogs, is problematic. Getting a website published requires getting up before dawn to take advantage of a less congested connection. And there are times when there's NO connection, as happened to me these days. I tried to be polite to discover what was happening but servers don't reveal information about any possible technical problems their way. I finally had to get nasty, which got results. The problem was my broadband antenna, which is up on top of the staircase tower, nearly three stories up. Some part of the antenna was full of water! Second time this has happened. For two days following the repair, my connection was so great I thought of apologizing to the server for my unkind words to them. But starting last night the connection strength dropped to low and it's been difficult to do anything since. There's been no rain, so I know that's not a problem. Keep blogging!
