Technical Difficulties


I've been plagued by technical difficulties the last few days. Saturday, I went to see a movie and twice during the movie it just stopped and I had to run off to the snack bar to get someone to start it up again. Last night, in a large packed theater, a similar thing happened except when the screen went dark the film kept running. So, when they resumed the movie we'd missed 5 crucial minutes and so had no idea what was going on. Thankfully, the movie stopped again, and a bunch of us just decided to get out of there. That meant a mass of annoyed people at Guest Services, who were ill-prepared for such an eventuality.

This is all a lead in to informing you of another technical difficulty. My e-mail server for some reason has been inaccessible for the last 18 hours or so. This is preventing me from moderating any comments. So, if you've made one, I'll try to get it up as soon as I can.

Update: Evidently the problem is with our internet provider who fears we may be using more than our share of bandwith (our newly installed phone system operates through the internet), running websites and businesses from home or something. And, because of the holiday nothing's likely to happen until Wednesday. Thanks to wireless, though, I'll be able to sneak away now and then to check my e-mail.

Wow Mark the disturbance in the force is following you around. Maybe it would be a good thing if you made it a point not to visit any hospitals for a while, just to be safe.

Is this some sort of new super power you've developed? Perhaps you could get a cape and go mess up the bad guys.

Imagine if Lex Luthor had to use dialup.
