Living in the Land of Dialup

Well, my wireless connection really does seem to be truly fubared. It's sort of working, slowly and intermittently, but basically if I want any real odds of staying up for more than a minute or so at a time, I need to resort to dialup. Which isn't actually all that bad. At least my 56k dialup here actually is 56k, as opposed to when I lived in the trailer, where it'd be any random number between about 20 and 45. So it's inconvenient and mildly annoying, but unless I want to download any huge files, it's workable. (Fortunately, I have an alternate source for my Doctor Who.)

I really need to get a hold of my ISP again. I sent them an e-mail a couple of weeks ago, but never got an answer, so I need to call 'em. Which I've been putting off for various stupid reasons. And now I'm about to switch over onto night shift, which means I'll pretty much be asleep during normal business hours for the next couple of weeks. So, yeah, it looks like I'm in the Land of Dialup for a while.

What this means is that the, what, two of you out there who might have reason to call me on the phone are likely to get a busy signal if you try. Send me an e-mail instead. And for those of you I normally hang out with online, well, don't expect me to be connected during every waking hour the way I normally am.
