iFC and dead phone
I went to IndyFurCon this past weekend.  I had a good time, got to see some folks I knew from the cons I've been to before, played a few games of Magic and Dominion, laughed a lot at Whose Lion Is It Anyway? and at 2 and Kage, spent a little time at the dance Saturday, took some pix, enjoyed Bucktown's concert, bought a couple of things from the dealers.  Didn't find my way to any parties, and got fewer hugs than I hoped for.

I'm only posting this now because when I got home, my phone was dead.  It's OK at the jack on the side of the house, nothing at the phone jacks in the house.  I'm now connected with a 100' extension cord plugged directly into the outside jack, and I have to figure out to get the inside wiring fixed.

Do you have a junction box inside the house that all of the phone wiring comes from? If so, it may be the wire from the outside box to the inside box that's gone bad, since it would be the one that most likely gets exposed to weather. At least, that's what happened to me once...

If I do, I have no idea where they hid it. There is nothing at all phone-related visible in the closet that's opposite the box on the outside. (The electrical service comes in there too; that's where the main circuit breaker box is. But no phone wiring. It's apparently all behind drywall, either in the walls or up above the ceiling. (Not just above the dropped ceiling, that would be *useful*...)
