No blog post yesterday since the Net was down at my house. It wasn't the Russians, at least as far as I know. It's back today, which is sorta good, sorta not.
You see, there's this deadline looming, and I would be two hours into writing at this moment if I hadn't found that the Internet was back at my house this morning. That means some email, some YouTube, some Facebook, some...You get the idea.
The Net is wonderful; the Net is terrible. It helps me do all sorts of cool things, but often those cool things are NOT what I'm supposed to be doing. Helpful friends send me interesting stuff, and I delay getting to work in order to peruse, explore, and enjoy. It takes a willful effort to resist the temptations it offers, but I'm going to do it and go to work... Right now.
