Back after three days and two nights of little or no connectivity. The network connection in the hotel room was broken–it didn’t work with two different computers and two different ethernet cables.
The cellphone also did not connect from the hotel. Service at the same spot has been excellent in the past and there were strong signals a few miles up or down the road, so, on the way back, I called the carrier to notify them that it looked like one of their towers was on strike. They were shocked when I said I didn’t want a refund or something “done for” me.
There was wireless in the lobby. Because of the nature of the business I was conducting, I decided that that would be enough for now.
But now I’m back.
