Hello, any one out there?

The internet just came up! Well, our portion of it anyway. We get a highspeed internet connection via a tower on a mountain 17 kilometres away. So when something goes wrong it is quite a trip for the guys to skidoo up the mountain to get at the tower.

It couldn't have happened at a worse time. I had customers I needed to dial in to and we had some online stuff that was costing money not to get done.

Five days without the internet. It's got us thinking about a two way satellite system. We keep hearing rumours about Telus or Rogers but so far just not enough customers to make it worth their while.

After a week of 0c when we got up this morning it was -12c. A more familiar temperature for this time of year.
