Surprise, it’s the technologically challenged half of ALN! As Terry reported earlier, I’ve been having modem troubles; for a goodly portion of Tuesday I was not able to hold an internet connection for more than a minute or two at a time. I guessed I would need a new USB cable, or a new modem, or even (shudder) a new computer. Well, glory be: for the time being, anyway, a little ingenuity and–I kid you not–Magic Tape seem to have done the trick. Scotch tape always has been one of my favorite office supplies. But I’ve never fixed a computer with it before; Magic, indeed.
So that’s the good news. The bad? The clocks are scowling 3:00 at me. I’m off to bed–further posting will have to wait until midday tomorrow, 3M willing. In the meantime, good night, good morning, and happy December.
