I’m back online at home.

I got the letter today saying today was my activation date. I suppose part of my monthly DSL fee pays for the pastel colors that are splashed all over their correspondence. Anyway, it turned out that I had to call tech support and have them read over the phone an ID, password, and web address so that I could re-register my account information. Isn’t all that a little excessive? Are they worried about Ernst Blofeld stealing my DSL and using it for nefarious purposes or something?

“Do you expect me to talk?”

“No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to dial-up!

(Yeah, I know that was Goldfinger and not Blofeld.)
