Do not disturb

That was how I was feeling last night. I love technology, but it seems lately it doesn't love me.

I have DirectTV that has been losing signal every night at 9:50PM. It doesn't lose the signal of all channels, just the ones I want to watch. The primary TV in the house works fine, never losing the signal when mine does. Its out all night. Last night it went out on the All Star Game.

My blackberry has been turning itself off, always at the wrong time. Once it starts turning off, it keeps turning off until the battery is dead. Then it started telling me I had a corrupt memory card. I lost everything I had on the card.

I use the blackberry as an MP3 player when I run. With it on the fritz, I started using an old MP3 player. The MP3 player wouldn't play the music, it said the music was in an invalid format. At least it had FM radio. I ran 30 minutes, heard 3 really bad songs and the rest was commercials. Now I remember why I have XM in the car.

I got a IPod nano last night, it took 3 hours to download itunes, locking up my computer the entire time.

The marker in the picture is a marker for a buried telephone cable in town......telephone cable, whats that?

I had the same problem with my Directv. It turned out to be a loose connection. Be very careful when technology turns on you.

Every night at 9:50, our DSL goes out. We have to get off our computers for about 10 minutes and then it comes back on. It's the craziest thing ever.

I got rid of Direct TV long ago. It seemed like it would go out every time there was a cloud in the sky. Plus I get better channels with the cable package I have now.

Sorry to hear about your troubles. Hope it all gets worked out!

Technology can be a B%#@# and make you feel like you have a huge L stamped on your forehead.
Don't jinx me! MB
