Off the wire

I'm writing from a non-self-imposed internet fast, one that took me by surprise. There is no use whining about this, saying, "How am I supposed to keep up my blooooog if I can't get on the internet?" so I've just tried to suck it up and be content offline. Which I do merrily and happily. But I miss you guys.

We have a bandwidth ceiling which we are dangerously close to. It's something unheard of in a city, where cables pour freely through walls and overhead and underground, but here in the woods we use satellite internet, and since we all have to share the satellite, we are not allowed to use very much. And we get punished if we go over. So, although I have posts coming out of my ears, I must sign off, at least until our rolling 30 day usage drops a bit. See you soon.
