Where Did Lia Go??!

It’s been awhile since I posted here. I’m not dead! I’m just behind schedule. And to make matters worse my internet service has gone from “bad” to “completely fucking useless.” If you follow me on twitter you’ve probably seen a few of my angry tweets (I’m hoping that if I shame CenturyLink long and hard enough I’ll actually get someone to come FIX THEIR SHIT).

My internet has been unreliable since late March but in the past couple of weeks it’s gotten exponentially worse. the WAN won’t stay connected for more than 5-15 minutes at a time and I’ve replaced all of the hardware and updated the firmware and there’s literally nothing else I can do on my end to try to fix the problem but GOOD FUCKING LUCK getting someone from CenturyLink to do anything besides ask you if ALL your phone lines have a filter on them and assure you that there is nothing wrong with their local service. HAH-fucking-HAH (I’m more than a little frustrated as you can imagine considering I do ALL of my work online).

So, I’m laboriously working on editing Book Two (It’s super fun when you disconnect from Google Docs every 10 minutes LET ME TELL YOU) while writing is temporarily on hold (I’m so full of rage there is just no way for me to be creative rn on top of the fact I cant get spotify to work with this internet problem). I will at some point have a copy of Convergence to go out to the kind people who volunteered to beta read for me–it will hopefully be by the end of this month (WHERE DID MAY GO?????).

In the meantime if you have questions, comments, timestamp requests my inbox is open and I will try to get back to you!

  1. I had the same heartbreaking drama a week ago. Depending on an unreliable internet to earn a living is insane! And most people don’t relate, or avoid relating / sympathizing when it comes to what internet dependent people without internet go thru. For me it was Comcast and the problem was that Comcast modem is stupidly designed to be incompatible with all other devices like routers, printer networks, etc.. Soon as I only used the modem and its built in features problem solved. Hope you find a fix as easy as this!

    1. that’s really frustrating! i’m glad you found a solution. we’ve stuck with centurylink for so long because they WERENT comcast and i liked the neutral stance they took on 6 strikes but they can’t seem to provide service anymore =/

      i think we might just have to switch ISPs (though i’m not psyched to do that since we JUST bought a new modem to “fix” the current problem).
