DSL working

Verizon appears to be not entirely made up of idiots. In fact, I really only have evidence for one, the intial tech I talked to on the phone. When I called back I got someone who was reasonable and logged the call. The lineman they eventually sent out the next day was quite competent. The telephone wiring in this area is generally messy, because you don't have to be very careful with how you wire for ordinary telephone. But not so with DSL. Anyways, they did a pair change and we've now got a newer DSL-capable line. And we've got DSL on it. Whee faster internet!
