I am back (I think)Tuesday, July 13th, 2010
Whew- I am back. I am so sorry that I seem to have disappeared. I had some significant connection issues out here on the lake but I think I now understand the way to use the “satellite” Internet connection that we have. We are so far from the main road that there is no way a DSL line is ever likely to end up here. So we make do with what we have.
Until last year we only had dial-up here so I am not actually complaining. What took me a week to figure out is that you only are allotted so much bandwidth per 24 hours. If several people in the house are wanting to connect (especially a 15 yr. old cousin on Face Book), your bandwidth goes quickly.
I’ll be back tomorrow with more (hopefully interesting) writing.
