Speakeasy + Covad + Bellsouth = DSL

Last Friday around 8:00am EDT, my DSL died. I stopped by the house around lunchtime and checked things out. I have had a lot of issues with DSL in the past due to the wiring in my house being unshielded and basically ancient. But, when I plugged an analog phone into the jack outside my house, I got no dialtone. That’s bad.

I put in a trouble ticket and by the end of that day I got a voice mail indicating my phone line was good and my DSL would be back up Monday. No explination about what happened or why my phone just went dead. Same for the DSL. It just came back with no message from Bellsouth or anything.

I suspect gnomes … or maybe brownies.
