We keep getting kicked off the internet today and I can’t post my posts. Maybe this one will work, maybe it won’t.

If I disappear for several days, please rest assured that I’m practically tearing out what’s left of my hair, trying to get the problem solved.

    This one came through. As for the rest, too bad you can’t use Byron’s server. It’s made of pick-up sticks, quokka fur, and Rottnest silicon, which can’t get damaged by ISP cooties. 🙂

    Pull out your hair only one strand at a time. You’re gonna need them all if these computer disruptions continue. I took a comp course in college, which was a waste of time, and money. All we learned is the way a computer works, by graphic illustrations. I did okay but walked away with no knowledge whatsoever of how to use a computer and completely forgot the graphs soon after. So far, you’ve been able to make the thing work in the end. It must be a learning curve because not only do the same problems arise, but new ones present themselves. Sorry for your problems but i’m still getting your posts at this end, thank you.

      I was sure things would be okay at the reader’s end–but if I can’t put up new posts, people will leave.

        So we’ll just pull them back in – by their hair – lol.

          Of course, there’s tons of stuff in the archive to read and enjoy–but only regular readers would know that.
          Verizon thinks our problems can be solved by a new modem, which they’ll send us in a few days. I hope they’re right.
          I had a lot of trouble posting this video… so please bear with me. Heh-heh.

            Oh, so i’m an irregular reader now, heh hey. I do periodically check your archives, but as you know, every day there are new issues. I’m pretty sure that during Trump’s second term, I’ll have more time because I won’t care about the things that are going on now, delete hundreds of more emails, and focus only on the best ones, like yours. Then, when your computer acts up, I won’t care about that either – i’ll have more time to browse your archives, although I’ll still feel bad for the problems the comp will most likely continue to have. HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY! – my absolutely favorite American holiday of all time.

    Some glorious utopian day when there are no new crises to handle (ha ha, as if that will ever happen), I’m going to go through those archives and do a binge-read of all the Joe Collidge posts. Or at least as many as I can manage before I find myself talking like Joe — or, Heaven forfend, spelling like him.

    I hope you had a Glorious Fourth in spite of the computer gremlins. God bless the USA.
