Yay the internets!  
So, as I'm sure people noticed, I didn't have the internet for three weeks.

What happened was, apparently we never paid the first NTT bill we received when we first got here back in 2008. After a while, NTT noticed and called us to tell us we had a late bill. Okay, fair cop, that was our fault. The part that annoys me is that that when we said we had paid (because we paid every other bill), they checked their records every time, saw we had paid the bill the previous month, and said, "Oh, we're sorry, you are correct." Then, they just shut out internet off. The first couple guys we talked to thought it was some sort of technical error on their end, and it wasn't for a couple days that we found out what the real problem was.

The reason it took three weeks is because NTT is a monopoly. They're required to approve any internet connection before an ISP can actually connect you with the tubes, and because of that they take their sweet time in doing it. After three weeks, they didn't even send anyone to our house. They just flipped the "on" switch back at their headquarters to start the electrons flowing again. *sigh*

Well, at least we have internet again now. And I managed to reset the wireless router even though it was all in Japanese, with the aid of what little Japanese I know and Rikaichan to fill in the gaps. (^_^)

I'm taking a short break from working on my NaNo, though I do have a few chapters still to post. I'll do that pretty soon.
