It turns out that the bills for my house’s land line have been delivered to a nonexistent address for the past three months, thus rendering me unable to pay them and rendering my phone number out of NTT’s registry. I’m currently in the process of getting a new number, which will then (hopefully) be followed by a swift restoration of net access. If there’s a silver lining to this painful situation it’s that I may be able to upgrade to a fiberoptic line with something sick like 30 Mbps up and down, but either way it’s likely to be at least another couple of weeks before I’m online at home again. Hopefully there will be something to show by then for this sudden vast wealth of free time that has opened up as a result. :V
