Hey everybody. I'm just gonna skip the introductory shit and cut right to the chase; my internet's been shut off. Well, that's the short version. But if you want to know the whole story, then read on! All you need to know is that I have a meeting scheduled with some folks from a new ISP set for Tuesday the 17th, so ideally my internet will be back up on that day. (It may not, depending on whether the person brings the setup equipment etc. I think it will be fine, though.) I'm posting this from a friend's house while still in purgatory, but I figured I owe it to you guys to let you know that I'm temporarily down and out, but I haven't had a means to let you know, so for that, I'm sorry.
As for the long-hand version of the story, my internet wasn't shut off recently. Quite the contrary, actually. It's been off for well over three months now. But, being the turd that I am, I've been leeching off of my neighbor's connection since then. And it's been, well, awful. uploading took years and downloading was worse. Getting new material to commentate on and keeping up with YouTube has been exceptionally hard over that timespan, and a part of me is actually really glad that's over, even if I have to wait a few weeks with no access at all. Why don't I have access? Well, my neighbors caught wind of my stealing their internet. (Or, more likely, their ISP did. My neighbors are old people you know, so they don't really use their connection for much at all.) So, 2 weeks ago, someone dropped by and fixed their connection up with a password, which means that I no longer have any connection to the net at all.
I would've gotten my own internet sooner or later, I'm sure, but the truth is I don't really have the money to keep a connection on account of being a human being and needing to eat and have a place to live and such. I just didn't have the cash to drop on the internet anymore, especially since I had my neighbor's. But at this point, yes, I'm going to be taking a chunk out of other cash to fix up my net. Normally I wouldn't bring this up, but the reason I do bring it up is because I may not have enough cash to put through my payment every month, and as such I might have a few spells where I drop off the face of the Earth, and I just wanted to let you guys know ahead of time.
So long story short yeah, Soundy's down but not out. And thanks so much guys for the 10k. I'm sorry I wasn't around to actually see it, but the fact that I've made it this far means the world to me, and I couldn't have done it without all of your help. That having been said, here's something to brighten the mood of the message.
I'll see you guys soon with a special everyone's been wanting since the beginning.
