What's New?

A few small delays

Our dial up connection - yes,  this site was built over a dial up connection and, yes, it was like trying to suck a cantaloupe through a silly straw - has started to get extremely flaky over the last few days and as a result I have been having a hard time uploading anything.

We are in the process of setting up a DSL connection (whoo! Free at last!) and everything should be good to go early next week.

It's kind of hard to imagine how much easer everything will be with a broadband connection. I've been using this 56K account for almost ten years now so it's kind of exciting to finally be catching up with the times. I guess now I'll have to break down and get an iPod. I mean, we've done all of this groundbreaking stuff with podcasting and I don't own an iPod . . .  Nah. I'd rather spend the money on a radio for the Dodge of Death. 

See you soon.
