That Didn’t Last Long

Monday, March 6th, 2017

After the cascading series of errors last week, Bell managed to get our phone up and running for the weekend. But not, apparently, today. We’re down again, and it looks like this might take some time.

 

Phone’s Out

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017
Our phone is currently down. If you need to get in touch with us today try here, Twitter, or email.

Sorry about that. Bell installed a line for one of our tenants early this week, and knocked out someone else’s line to do so. Then while fixing that line, they knocked out ours.

We’re talking an almost sitcom-worthy display of genius, here.
