Reliable DSL(?)

At the risk of jinxing things, after two weeks it looks like the new DSL circuit is actually reliable!

A thunderstorm rumbled through yesterday and...nothing happened. I couldn't believe it!

I'll keep a weather eye on it, but Bote's Mixer Board should now be solid with Fort Lauderdale area fire radio scanner traffic.

We thank you for your support.


Bote's Mixer Board online

Bote's Mixer Board is back online on the new DSL circuit.

We shall see how long it takes until *THIS* one fails. I see some thunderboomies on the RADAR advancing into Georgia so we might know within 24 hours or so.


Bote's Mixer Board outage

Bote's Mixer Board serving up Fort Lauderdale area public safety shenanigans is down today and tomorrow because BellSouth DSL is a bunch of incompetent nincompoops.

Because my unreliable DSL line is so unreliable, I put in an order to move it to the other phone pair coming into my place. So they dutifully executed the disconnect order on the old circuit, but there is nothing whatsoever on the new line. No hiss, no battery, no dial tone, no nuttin.

They are rolling a truck tomorrow (Wednesday) between 8 and 4:30 so we shall see if they can get one damned pair of wires to connect between my place and their central office.

Sorry for the outage.
