So Austar (satellite tv folks here) came bright and early today but after looking at the house they could not install !!! Sigh. The landlord does not want it mounted on the roof because of breaking the tiles which I can totally understand but the wall mount thing was not going to bring it out far enough to position it correctly….so…..they have an extended wall mount they can get ordered in but it is not cyclone proof. Now how often have you ever thought about making sure something was cyclone proof??? So the installer is going to try to get the right thing that will make it work, make Austar happy and make our landlord happy at the same time which is the most important thing. I don’t want to do anything to mess up his house!!! The installer is going to work on it and hopefully be back sometime this week to do the install. I am not going to hold my breath. We may be back living in the US by the time this materializes!!! Who would have thought this was going to be such a drama ??? But there are a lot of variables involved and that is why I guess. Nice guys though so I don’t mind having people do work when they are nice and explain everything to you like you have a brain!!! So the saga continues!!!!!
