$340, my ass! [Sep. 26th, 2000|05:44 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
the phone company wanted $85 per jack for our new basement phone number. i said, "okay, just install it in my room then." scott and i then went to radio shack, bought some phone wire, wire cutters, and opened up the boxes outside and wired it all ourselves. we feel pretty damned proud of ourselves right now.... not only did we save $340, but we did a very professional job hooking it up, too .... ran the wires very cleanly.

i wired the phone in my bedroom a while back. didn't do a very good job though so the wiring in the house would go out sometimes. my parents called the phone people and had them reinstall it about a month ago. at least now it's not hanging out of the wall. that was a crappy job, though. had to go under the house to the crawl space and wire it in there.

Good for you, I guess

Brad,

To use the old clich, the check is in the mail.

I sent off $25 for a one-year paid subscription to LJ today, plus a little bonus to help keep the servers serving.

I'm happy to help out with a valuable and fun service.

Re: Good for you, I guess

Cool, thanks!

I'm getting pretty excited about the new servers we'll be getting.... hope I can keep the site up and running decently until that time. :)
