Once things were all fixed up with the internet, I did my surfing, as usual.
Things seemed a little sluggish, but that happens from time to time after an outage.
But after a day, it was really bad, about a third to a fifth the speed of normal, and when I started downloading something, everything slowed to a *crawl*. I'm talking dialup here.
Guy comes by today, does a little futzing, some rewiring, replaces the modem, gets me back up to speed, and even faster than before. And clues me in that they're doing a free upgrade for even faster modems. Must tell mother to call.
But anyways, we're chatting about stuff, and I mention podcasts.
The guy is clueless.
I'm concerned when the guy touching my computer doesn't know what a podcast is, seriously. =)
