I try to put up at least one blog post every day. But, if you've been coming to the blog regularly, you'll notice that this is the first one since August 27. The reason for this is that my modem died not long after posting on the 27th, and since I've got a satellite internet provider, what with my living out in the middle of nowhere, it meant that I had to get a new modem sent by the ISP. They couldn't send it out until Monday, which meant I didn't get it until later in the week. And, of course, connecting new hardware to a computer never goes as planned.
On the bright side, at least my old modem didn't try to cut off my oxygen supply like the HAL-9000, or put on a cowboy hat and come after me like Yul Brynner. But now that I seem to have everything working again, blog posting should return to normal.
