Persistence and a Technological Triumph
Allow me to crow. After two and three quarters hours of fiddling, husband Bob and I have succeeded in getting wireless to work at our house on my laptop. We’ve never even been able to use a cellphone here. We’re in the woods and apparently hard for signal to find.
This miraculous computing capability was accomplished with a little AT&T gizmo that installed its own software. So far the process is dreadfully slow, but still it allows me to tap out a few lines, just short of midnight, by standing at an upstairs window with the machine held up in the air to the spot that gets enough signal. May sound clumsy, but just remember the Wright Brothers’ first flights were pretty clunky too. Maybe tomorrow I’ll be on the roof with this thing, or up a tree. At any rate, I’m thrilled with tonight’s progress.
