My computer or my Internet service, one, is not playing nice. For the last few weeks, it has decided that on occasion (actually, on lots of occasions) it'll 'not respond' to what I've asked it to do. Usually, what I've asked it to do is open my e-mail. But, nope, it doesn't want to do that.
I have AOL, which I get and pay for through my DSL connection with my phone company. So, when I had enough of the 'not responding' responses, I called the phone company to complain. They informed me that the problem wasn't theirs, even though when I opened Internet Explorer and not AOL, it does the same thing. So, I tried to contact AOL about it. They told me, via a recording, that I didn't have the AOL program that allowed me live accesses to the Tech Dept. and if I wanted to talk to someone about my AOL problem, I had to upgrade my program.
So, far, I've not bothered to call back my phone company or AOL. But I'm going to. Isn't taking money for a service and then not providing that service fraud? When I can't even open my mail and read it, something is drastically wrong.
One of the other things I've been trying to do is upload onto this blog my newest book cover. I can reach the 'done' page, but before the 'done' button pops up...well, AOL decides 'not to respond.' So after trying for a half dozen (or more times) I just gave up.
All in all, it's very frustrating.
I hope some day, soon, it fixes itself, if not, I may have to take this up with both my phone company and AOL...neither one of whom will like me very much when I'm through.
