Okay. Like everyone else in town, my internet cable was out all last night. I've heard that it's back up and running as of this morning, but I have yet to check it out. I guess it was out for part of the night before when I thought it was my modem as well. Mediacom sucks.
As you know, I can be a bit tenacious about obtaining or fixing something. If I think there is even a glimmer of hope, I will work the hell out of it. But if it's clear that there's no chance in hell I can fix or get the thing I want, I can finally just let it go. Which is what happened last night. I tried to get the computer to work, and then finally texted a friend to see if hers was working. She told me hers was dead too. So, I gave up, cranked up my music, cracked open a beer and cleaned my kitchen, and then read a book after that. Weird.
