This is a little weird. We lost all wired communication with the outside world and I’m composing this on my phone so I am doing hunt and peck on a tiny screen. I haven’t been able to contact the cable company to fix it yet, so I don’t know how long it will be out.

This has happened before and is due to rain incursion in the outside interface box that converts the fiber optic cable signal to electronic signals for Internet, cable TV, and telephone. This has become more frequent lately and I think the enclosure may have degraded with age.

So anyway I will be silent for a while until I get internet back.
