So I got my modem last Wednesday, and it connected and all was well with the world. But for some reason it has stopped connecting and I cannot contact Yahoo BB tech support in English. As if figuring out retarded technical troubles weren’t already frustrating enough, I have to attempt to do it in Japanese. Last Friday, I got a call from Yahoo BB (Softbank, actually) about some problem. It took me forever to figure out what exactly the problem was. Apparently, I have had my zipcode wrong for the last month. For some reason, not only was the zipcode wrong in my application info, but the area of town that I live in, as well as my apartment number. So, below is my corrected mailing address:
Kasai Apartments 2-D
I hope hope hope that I have internet by the end of the week somehow. I have a hunch that the problem might have something to do with my address being wrong – they might have calibrated the wrong distance for the DSL link at the telecom building. Distance is an issue for DSL from what I can remember.
Otherwise, things are pretty good here. Today is much much cooler than it has been recently. I have two three-day weekends in a row coming up, so I might use this one to get out of town if I still don’t have internet. If I do, I’ll probably stay here and catch up on things and start looking more seriously for a car.
