We have internet and phone service through a local cable company.
The Friday before last our internet went out, which means our phone also went out.
The cable company has not yet (as of 1pm Sunday) got it working again, and they have not said when or even IF it will be working again.
So I’m cadging my moms internet using a laptop that is driving me crazy. The cursor keeps moving while I’m typing. I have changed some settings to try to fix that but no joy so far.
So I haven’t been posting much anywhere, and my last giveaway was a bit late. I’m hoping they will get my net fixed Monday. If they don’t I may try getting internet from satellite. Anyone have experience with that? Like it?
Hope to be back online regularly soon. Bear with me. Please.
Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
It had never occurred to me that such a thing as short extension cords even existed. The shortest ones I had ever seen were 6 feet long.
Until I saw the pictures of these and the description of them it just never entered my mind that there was a way to get all your computer stuff plugged into the same surge protector at once.
My surge protector looked like this before :
Yea at least one of my plugs was unusable without unplugging something. Which meant I couldn’t put my phone and Kindle chargers on there at the same time without losing either my printer, my speakers, or my modem.
There are other spots in the house where it would be nice to be able to actually use both plug-ins. I have no idea why so many items (phone with answering machine) have large plugs that take up all the room on a plug but it does get irritating.
Removing the big plugs and putting in the Solid Cordz® Extension Cords also made it look a lot neater and as you can see dusting didn’t hurt it either.
Doesn’t that look better?
You can actually set this up so the cords are pretty much hidden. Of course mine are on top of a desk so I can drape them over the side but you can probably do that other places too.
So far I have two extra useable plug-ins in the house. My husband is going to use the other two cords in the shed(as soon as he gets the electrical lines run.)
These are really good cords too. They are for indoor use only, Equipped with a 16AWG wire gauge, Underwriters Laboratories (UL) listed, and CSA Approved for top quality.
