We have dialup service. Two of us entered the FanLit contest which means for the last six weeks our phone line has been constantly tied up. We have received complaints about it from employers, teachers, doctors, family members, and friends.
I didn’t care. I was busy writing, submitting, rating, commenting, inviting, and generally having a grand old time. Little did I know we almost cost my husband a new job.
Luckily the same medium that messed us up saved us. When my husband’s new boss couldn’t reach him by phone to tell him he got the job, she emailed him. Doomed and saved by the Internet. Aint life grand.
