Thank God I got a new modem, it worked for about one day before shutting down again!

I'm running out of willing virgins to sacrifice to the great god of the blogosphere!
Needless to say, posting will be sporadic at best, and Dagnabit, now I have something to say!!
(I wish I weren't such a Luddite!
