...that my internet woes are finally over.
Ever since I returned to Moscow about a month ago, I've been having trouble with my internet service. Being an internet addict of the highest degree, you can imagine what torture it is not having a reliable internet line. Sometimes it would be okay, most times I wait for long, long seconds and then realise the page won't be loading ever. Surfing with such uncertainty was such a pain.
A Russian-speaking technical support staff came by the first week I was back. As luck would have it, the internet never acts up when tech help is around, does this strange phenomenon only ever happen to me?! So Russian tech guy declares to English tech guy that I speak to over the phone that all is A-okay, no problem at all with the line. But once he left, my problem returned. Super frustrating.
This evening, Victor, one of two English-speaking tech support I had been complaining to (the other being Maxim) finally made his way over and after some investigation, apparently, resolved the problem.
I still didn't feel too optimistic that the internet wouldn't act up the moment he left. I only felt more reassured and confident that this chap really knew what he was doing cos while making small talk before he left, I asked if he worked mostly in the office, or if he made 'house-calls' all day as tech support. Victor looked at me and said, "Actually, I'm the Chief Engineer." Ohhh...
Well, fingers' crossed, so far (been 5 hours) so good.
