Still no internet…

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:

Sean Holland
Kasai Apartments 2-D
Ninocho 12-41
Murakami-shi, Niigata-ken
958-0835 JAPAN

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.

Yeah internet is somewhat of a necessity here in Japan. The wireless at NGU is kinda flaky and most of us here have turned our kitchens into makeshift dens. Best of luck getting online.

Hang in there , man. Hopefully no one sent you anything. But yeah. uhhh…I dunno….just leaving a comment to tell you that I read it.
