Wow. I don't know what's been wrong with my (insert profane descriptive word of your choice) home network, but for days I have been unable to maintain an internet connection longer than a couple of minutes.
I'll probably be kicked off in a few seconds. If you've been looking for a new post, I apologize. Once I get this sucker fixed, I'll be back with a new entry.
Sling Words out to do more trouble shooting.
