I woke up extra

| No Comments

I woke up extra early this morning. I wasn't sure why.

But as it turns out, I stirred at about the same time that our ADSL provider was cutting off our connection. They do this every few months to all their normal customers. Now we have a new IP address for the next couple of months.

For us, it's not a big deal--we have to restart the connection and update a few settings and then we can get on with what we usually do. For a business, changing an IP address suddenly and out of the blue is a disaster and by cutting the connection, the ADSL provider ensures that businesses pony up the exorbitant fees for continuous, static IP addresses. A clever strategy.

Anyway, waking up at the same time the connection was cut makes me wonder if I'm supernaturally in tune with my Internet connectivity.
