No internet = /€#)/&!!?

So sorry I have gone missing the last few days. The whole blame is to be sent to German internet. When I moved into the apartment in Copenhagen, I called up a company, they said "yes, let me hit the switch, it should work in 5 minutes", and I paid €7,5 for it each month. It never failed. Here, it takes up to 4 weeks for them to get around to install anything, it costs at least €25/month, and now I just got a letter from my supplier that I should expect €17 more a month = €37. Seriously?! I am handing in my thesis in a month's time and the missing internet is stressing me out big time. So yes, this page is suffering and I apologize. I hope to return very soon with glimpses, photos, thoughts and coffee. Stay well until then.

be strong!! =)
German providers tend to waste a lot of your time with calls, e-mails and letters instead of just turning that switch!
It will work eventually, but i costs nerves!

Good luck with your paper!! =)

Thanks. It's such a hassle. I've already talked to them three times, I have waited for 10 days and am just really annoyed. I guess it will come eventually, though...
