My DSL is on the fritz — something in the lines apparently, the tech support guy from my ISP (shout out to Bridgeband, they’re great and have terrific support) says it’s in the wires. We think it has something to do with the windstorms we’ve been having. Which means I’m waiting on Qwest. Which is a drag. So I’m ducking out a couple of times a day to the library or one of the coffee houses in town where there’s a wireless connection, but for the most part, I’m back in the pre-internet world.
Which is sort of interesting. You can get a lot done when you’re not wasting several hours a day dicking around online. I made granola this morning while the Bridgeband guy plugged things into various places to verify that yes, they are not working. I also cleaned my bathroom. Yay.
Here’s a little link to keep everyone entertained while I’m trying to get my connectivity back (and trying to get back in the writing saddle after being gone for a week). Via Ruhlman, here’s a terrific post by David Lebovitz on 10 Easy Ways to Improve Your Cooking.
