    It's been a long week! I've been offline more than on this week thanks to work, home/family, and a horrible DSL connection at the house that would disconnect frequently throughout the course of the day. Between its slow speed and disconnects the DSL was driving me nuts.

    Well, there is not much I can do to fix work and home/family but thanks to Verizon I can fix my internet connection. :D At the house we've switched from DSL + DirecTV to Verizion FiOS internet + TV. Woohoo! It will take a bit to get used to the new TV interface and channel lineup but so far I am loving the internet connection.


    Here is random sample of before... :cry:

    As part of the switch to fiber our POTS (Plain Old Fashioned Telephone System) landline was switched to a digital service. I can now view call logs to the house on my cell phone or a browser and retrieve voice mail from anywhere also. From my Android phone I can check who called, view a log of voicemail and listen to them, and, if the phone number is associated to any contacts in my phones contacts then then voice mail entry is automatically associated with them in the listing.

    Excellent! :cool:
