Right, so, Im in no mood for words, so I'll make this as quick and to the point as I can.
Telstra has been fucking me and the bastards didnt even buy me dinner.
When we moved in, first thing we did was call them ( on a mobile ) to get our home phone line activated. We were told we needed to provide proof of residency because the last family here didnt cancel their service.
No worries, So we had our lease photocopied and dropped it off at the store...where they lost it. Twice.
Third times the charm though, We watched them put it through.
At this point, we became mildly annoyed.
Time passed, and we hadnt heard from them, so we called them, and they told us there must have been a fault on the lines, so would have to send out a technician.
More time passes, frustration levels rise.
Discovers we dont even have lines connected to the house, in the walls or at the junction. He fixes problem.
Telstra, in infinite knowledge and wisdom, disconnect line to family living above us, attempt to connect us on their line. Leaving them, and us, without service.
Family above us becomes involved and infuriated with what should have been a simple, quick job.
Old mate upstairs cuts sick at Telstra phone man, demands action be taken.
Telstra man says not until next week, Friday, over a week away.
Old mate goes super saiyan, Filled with righteous anger, Destroys Telstra man after 3 hour phonecall.
We discover it took 6 weeks for family upstairs to even get a phoneline activated when they moved in.
Resign to shitty, internetless life for another few weeks.
Too our amazement, Telstra Tech knocks on door at about 1300hours, he's here to check shit out
Manages to get a dial tone, leaves to check junction.
Huzza! Seems we have a dial tone, and therefore active phoneline!
Now waiting on confirmation ( should come tommorow) and to find an ISP that gives service here for a fair price, so I can get back to a regular routine.
So, Im hoping, though not committing to anything, that I will be back operational within a week or two.
Working without live input on the Patreon pages is, I think, unfair, as I particularly like the interaction and input as I progress and feel it contributes greatly to its outcome.
That aside, I have a few small pictures to upload when I get service, and plenty of work to catch up on when it is.
Your understanding that this move and the problems that have arisen in the past month have been extremely stressful for me would be much appreciated.
I am very much looking forward to getting back online and arterising again.
With hate, bitterness and disdain,
Cthulu willing, I'll have internet active in a months time.
Whatever gods, idols, or images you may or may not pray too, Pray Telstra dont fuck up. Again.
