HughesNet Still Sucks
Bob is back on-line.
The HughesNet techie came out, replaced the modem. That didn't fix the problem. He said the transmitter was broken and would have to be ordered. He went away.
The HughesNet techie came out again 5 days later. He replaced the transmitter. It still didn't work. After an hour he found that the connection on the cable to the transmitter had corroded. He cut it off and put on a new connector. They will probably charge me for the new modem and transmitter. It took a week to fix.
Moderation of comments on The World According to Bob will experience some delays during the next few days due to HughesNet difficulties. For more on HughesNet see HughesNet Really Sucks
Bob apologizes for any delays. Comment moderation will resume the normal schedule whenever HughesNet gets around to fixing the totally worthless and very overpriced service.
