— And I’m still about 20 articles short (maybe more, maybe less; my editor needs to flow what we have into the book design). I blame my satellite connection, which has been the very definition of “intermittent,” spending entire hours cycling through a connect and disconnected state every six seconds or so. When you have to use the Internet for research, this is inconvenient. Did I mention that satellite Internet sucks? (Don’t make me go on about the troubles I’m having with dial-up at the moment.) I’ll be making an appointment today for a technician to come out and check it out. However, no more updating here until I’m done with the book. Think: Probably Wednesday.
