As of this writing my internet connection remains crap-tacular and I'm working to resolve the issue with my provider. Anyone who's had to deal with the run-around these companies give you and twelve million different suggested solutions to one problem that arose out of nowhere... I'm sure you can imagine the size of my headache.
This was, once again, written in one of those rare windows of time where I actually seemed to be able to connect to the internet.
My crummy connection has me falling behind on my e-mails again (shocker!) so if you've sent me anything particularly important, please be patient while I deal with these headache-inducing connection problems.
