I want my DSL!!!

It's been a week since I moved to a new house and its also been that long since I have surfed thru my PLDT Dsl and I miss it already. I rely heavily to the internet, I have an online store, I get my information for work online and its part of our family's everyday life.

I am already frustrated, disspointed and angry. My PLDT phone and DSL was supposed to be connected DAYS AGO. I got a call last monday Aug 18, on my mobile from PLDT asking if my phone was already installed and I said not yet, but can they please install it that day if they can. The caller said they can't do it that day for its already 4 in the afternoon and I should just wait for it in the next few days.

So I waited.

And waited..

And still waited even when my husband is already threatening on not going home because there is still no INTERNET! (My husband you see is an online gaming addict and must maintain or move up his levels or whatever)

So by friday I called PLDT to follow up, to my surprise my records show that the phone is already installed. (A SHOCKING Discovery). So the agent told me to still wait a few days more as they will again put an urgent status on my "REQUEST".

I don't have a grudge on PLDT for this is my 3rd time to have a PLDT and MyDSL account but this is the first time it happened. They promised my 5 working day installation and I am already on my second week of waiting. I would like to make an appeal to PLDT, maybe its your contractors who are remiss of their duties for before I moved in, the landlord told me about their problems on their PLDT phone specially for repairs and the likes. The new house is only a few streets away from our old one.


........ I'm still waiting... and don't know whe will I connect once more to the internet.

Blogging from Home - The BOOK!

I got my copy of the Blogging from Home book by Janette Toral last thursday night. I was so eager to read the book as I will be conducting a seminar/workshop on blogging and podcasting next month.

The book is an easy read, full of mind maps, screenshots and features that will guide you on blogging specially if you are just starting to blog. For the experienced blogger it is a handy reference for you to take your blog to the next level or to maximize the potential of your blog.

As a professor, I give high points to the book for presenting the technical details in a very simple and straight forward manner. It will be a joy to read and follow even if you are a newbie blogger or an experienced one. I am letting my mom and dad read it for I am teaching them blogging soon as I have my dsl set up.

The book is a great gift to give to friends specially if you are persuading them to blog like I do or if they asks for your guidance while they are blogging and you can only help them thru text messages for you are not physically able to meet. I already ordered two more books to give to friends. I can't wait to give it to them.

Congratulations to Janette Toral for this wonderful book!
