The Phantom Beep
I checked the garage--well, I drove the car to the station and back, then happened to look at the wall. Our FIOS box had a nice red light next to the green one. Was that there before? Shifting boxes (our garage is a little full) and squeezing round the car I saw it said "replace battery," but when I checked the internet it seemed such batteries can cost $100! Help! No way! So I phoned frontier.
The lady with frontier was very nice and incredibly patient with me. She waited while I ran up and down-stairs looking for the right size screwdriver to open the box. She waited while I prodded and poked and finally found my way in. She sympathized when I told the battery weighed a ton. And she phoned me back when I disconnected the plug and cut us off. Finally everything was put back together and it turned out a power surge had confused the system. Battery's fine. No need to pay. And, at last, the beeping's stopped!
So that was my morning...
I added some subpages to my weebly website too, and worked on the header (see pic). Do check it out. Do weeble. It's easy and fun!
