We're finally out of the hotel and in an apartment. We lucked
out and the same people that are selling us an apartment were
willing to rent us their newest apartment for a month until we
close on the piece of junk we're buying and fix it up enough to
live in. (they call condominiums apartments too)
We've got cable tv and internet too now, so I had the joy of
hooking up a new router to a new cable modem. I screwed
something up when I set the mac address to the cable modem
and all I kept getting was the cable companies web page to test
the speed of the modem. With dread yet a small ray of hope
I called tech support, opcion 1 - clientes de red (network), opcion
2 clientes de TVcable, opcion 3 - clientes de negocio. Fuck.
no "oprima dos para ingles" like we hear back home in the multi-
Luckily I've done enough network troubleshooting that I could
follow the steps even though I couldn't quite catch every word.
They reset something and suddenly: bam! Wireless network.
It does prove the point that tests for classes in a foreign language
should be done by telephone. With no hand waving and facial
expressions to provide feedback, it's possible to get lost easily.
Oh well, progress continues.
