May I let my voice be a clarion call. I will use these words for justice. I will use these words for truth. And humour.

No Internet access at home for at least another week

Oh I've got a doozy to tell but its mainly bitching so I'll try and keep to teh primary points:
In the meantime, I've been getting a boatload done around the house. In a way, not having the Internet around to distract me at home is very nice. I have not a lot of discipline, so sometimes looking up a word or website from an article or something turns into hours of tangential link-following instead of something more productive. But I do end up learning about the latest robot technologies, or some such other random thing I gravitate toward.

pax hominibus,

I should mention that the relationship has gotten more complicated. After dropping AT&T/SBCYahoo as our DSL provider because of the unusually abusive service of their brick-and-mortar partners at Best Buy Company, store #499, AT&T has now sent TWO AC adapters to replace the one that's went bad. Now the 2wire gateway works just fine, but of course it wouldn't correctly connect to our new service provider because of whatever differences they have in provider protocols.

In addition, I'm noticing that when I sent text messages from my phone, it leaves a little AT&T advertising "turd" at the end of the message. Hmmm... Seems jumping from the frying pan into the fire (or something else) isn't as easy as jumping into another frying pan.
