Radio Silence


Looks like Earthlink decided to reroute our DSL from Covad's trunk through Verizon's.

Looks like we'll be offline while they make this change.

Looks like we found this out when, at 9pm today, the wireless went down... and I couldn't piggyback on our neighbor's wireless... or our other neighbor's wireless. And then Keith called Earthlink and was told the above.

"When did you notify us of this?"
"Well, we learned about it May 10th."
"And you were going to tell us when?"
"Um... let me patch you through to customer service."
(recorded voice, listing customer service business hours... which are not now)

And that's that.

We'll be down for "a minimum of three days" while this change is made.

Three days. No Internet. No notice.


I'm taking this as a sign that I'm only allowed to do as much Internetting as my handheld will let me do. So, there ya go.

In GOOD news of the day, the HBFF panel was rockstar (and how much did I love getting to meet and chat with Ernie Hudson and Steve Harris... yummy) AND it's the beginning of a new era (or the end of a block that was placed on an existing era's pattern). Y'see... after over three years of having my name in a certain trade paper every week, my name was FORBIDDEN in its pages (in fact, I was removed from stories on which I was a source, during "the dark period"). Well, my beloved Jackie slipped me through in this week's column. And tomorrow, I'm being interviewed as a source (officially) on a story by another reporter there. I just love how it all comes around... eventually.


And The Mighty Quinn is here. We've already played Hello Kitty Uno about a dozen times, watched a hundred cartoons, and made fun of "Dad's hairy chest." Life is good.
