Moar internets!

I hope to have time this weekend to report on significant and wonderful recent events, but until then, I wanted to share some less important but nonetheless good news with you.

Frustrating, to say the least.

Enter cable internet! I just linked up the shiny new cable modem today, and now finally feel like I’m really part of the information highway. Check it:
