I’ll also note that I’ve been having Internet problems. My Internet access is working right now, but it’s been becoming increasingly spotty over the last few days. For the past few months, it’s had a habit of vanishing for about ten seconds every few hours. This wasn’t a really huge deal, since I’m not actually playing StarCraft or other online games which require a persistent connection (though it was annoying when it’d happen in the middle of a big download). But it was down for well over two hours, today.
So the service provider is sending some workmen around tomorrow morning to see if they can’t find what the problem is. Crossing fingers that they find the problem.
