Telephone adapter

DSL Microfilter. I already posted about the spares for this on Day 78, the first day of adding the tag sea monster, but long before the Alt Titles/Untitled flights of fancy came into being.

Fast-forward to a couple of weeks ago, the internet and phone (yes a landline!) at the studio/office went down. After an extremely unreasonable wait time from Telus repair – with a business account no less-  they came and repaired it. That went smoothly enough. They’re only a telecommunications company – why is getting in touch with them so hard? Aah — but there were outages elsewhere that day.

Anyhow back to the cable thing-a-ma-bob. The Telus repair man was very friendly and once he negotiated the scary room in the basement in this heritage building, it was all back up and running.

Before he left, he told me he had replaced this adapter. He picked it up and deftly tossed it into the garbage, pronouncing it obsolete. Little did he know how much glee that word would bring to me. As soon as he left I quickly scooped it out of the garbage. It deserves an honourable goodbye here.

Luckily the garbage was fairly clean.

Alt-title: Untitled Object No. 223 For Filtering Out Futile Signals

I feel like  I should do a post about this Alt-Title stuff. Until then, the usual nod of appreciation to  Richard, and  John, for inspiring the Alt-Title Untitled post nonsense, and to Ben for the jokes format. I hope there’s someone out there who knows html and appreciates the extra element of the “joke” (no pun intended)
