Arrivederci, Earthlink!

The end was swift for a relationship begun in the year 2000. [Longer than some of your marriages.-ed. At least one.] In came Timer Warner cable, out went Earthlink DSL this morning nearly one week without high-speed internet at home. How much can a fella stand? I felt like I was back in the 1980s. So far, early days here, the cable connection seems faster. As soon as the wifi gets connected, late this afternoon, our house can return to its normal online self -everyone buried in his or her own computer. Thank God for iChat or we wouldn’t know each other. (Okay, kidding here, but the world seems headed that way.)
