Since I had that bad moment with the WordPress 3.1.1 upgrade yesterday, I expected to be immune from technology meltdowns for a while. Not so much.
Like yesterday, it was a first-time problem with a product that had always worked well for me. Clear’s 4G mobile broadband service has been reliable for me since I opened the account last July. Not today. I had lights and connection. I didn’t have the Internet. Fortunately there was an actual informative error message saying that it was unable to connect to an IP address that turned out to be a DNS server. Switching to Google’s DNS servers got me back online. The actual Clear DNS server was reachable at a later time.
Can’t wait to see which technology bails on me tomorrow!
