It's been raining nearly everyday in the afternoon. Sometimes drenching the earth throughout the night. The grass is growing right in front of me and the mower is broken. The wild rabbit eats breakfast on the front lawn. The armadillo visited the studio and left without a forwarding address. The toads are rampant under the deck and banana spiders are setting sticky, yellow, silken traps. The cidadas hum incessantly and the trees are here to comfort me. Step outside and begin to sweat. The only thing left to do is get in the pool, get in the pool.

Ok, so, today I continued round and round with my wireless router difficulties.
My Netgear wireless router is 1.5 years old – make that new, so it is no longer covered under warranty and so anytime it decides it won’t interface with my Bellsouth modem I was told I can no longer get telephone support, even tho after having done so often I can pretty much troubleshoot it myself. This time tho, it wasn’t letting me log in to reconfigure it – usually the Ethernet bridge just needs to be reset after a storm or power outage, which happens quite frequently here in the summer. But, I digress. So I spent over an hour on the phone last night with Katrina from Bellsouth aka AT&T (that’s a whole other story eh?) At first she said I could buy a new modem for $100, ten easy payments. She was very nice and told me since I was a long-term, high-speed, home-networking customer, I could possibly get it for free. Call billing in the morning. So I do and well, their take is that I can pay $60, again in ten easy payments, (are there never hard payments?) for a modem/router combination. Hmmm, but what am I to do with this working modem I have? Do you have a recycling program? Do you personally recycle? Where are you? Aha, the
