I seem to be having some problems with my internet connection. I'm the ONLY one in the house having problems with my internet connection. And since chocolate bribery only works on USERS of the internet, I may be off quite a bit today.
Dusty's going to try and figure out what's going on, but it could be a while before I'm back "on". For now, all the on-line things I planned to do today will have to go on hold. I'll answer emails as I can, and if worse comes to worst I'll string a cable to my laptop and use a physical connection. Bear with me while I get this worked out!
UPDATE: It took most of the day but we finally figured out it wasn't me, it was the network. The problem was it started out looking like it WAS my computer that was the problem, but then the kids started having issues and we realized that perhaps one of the brownouts we'd had this week messed some stuff up. So now I'm back on-line and just fine... but my workday is shot.
It's 3:30, the kids are finally settling down and I'm in no mood to write. I'll have to see if I can come up with at least a little something so the day isn't a total wash, but if it is at least I can claim "My computer made me do it."
