Radio Silence...

The move is mostly done. Phewww. I hate doing the moving thing. Frankly, it sucks. That is - however - how it goes. Moving is one of life's little adventures. It was only across town though - so that's not too hard to live with.

That means I'm not going to have any internet for a while. I was on a cable hookup, which was nice. But, with the move, I'm switching to the dish for my television needs. That leaves me searching for a different internet connection. It's too expensive to do it through the satellite and I'm not putting in a land telephone line.

There's a new company that's hooking up wireless connections in town and that's probably the way I'll be going. It's actually faster or about the same as my cable now, but they don't throttle down on you when you download. We'll see if that will do the trick. But, it will be a while. So, see you all when I become plugged in with some tech.

Cheers.

Pisser about the internet. I've heard there is a world outside of the "tubes". I haven't personally seen it ... but I have a friend who once saw it. lol.

Hope you enjoy the new digs. And we'll be waiting for you here when you get back.

Thanks guys. It's sort of intermitant right now...I'm still hooked up at my old place. I'm sneaking on for a few minutes.

Get your priorities straight young man! Everyone knows that internet comes first. Then you can worry about trivial stuff like water, electricity, and food. ;)

Hey Shawn. We just moved two weeks ago. I empathise with you. I had my internet connection up and running half way through the move lol.

Hurry back.

Wireless rules. It's hard to go back, especially when you have a laptop and use it all over the house.
