There’s a war to link to and opine on (and on and on) about, but my broadband connection is suffering anywhere from 20-30% packet loss.

If you don’t know what that means, it means lots of posts that fail to post, lots of pages you have to reload several times to get them loaded up the first time, emails that never quite seem to make it out, and what may be the beginnings of my very first ulcer.

The tech guy will be here Wednesday, hopefully to replace the faulty equipment with something more reliable, perhaps a modem made by narcoleptic alcoholics in a work-release prison program. In the meantime, I’ll keep blogging, but be understanding if I’m snippier than usual.
