in the hinterlands

From the wretched backwaters of southwestern VT, on the NY border, I write...

The "Paradise Motor Inn" has wireless internet, available in the lobby and a few of the rooms (including mine), but they cleverly placed their WAP at the front wall of the building, and my room is on the back side, so I'm on the edge of range. That would be OK -- but their ISP ( and its big-brother upstream ( has a problematic router -- so I cannot reach my primary mailhost.

If you've sent me mail, or commented on something, and expected a response -- I've not seen anything since early Friday. You can use my gmail address for urgent stuff -- I can reach that site from here... The various IM services are intermittently working, so you can try them too, as I leave my laptop on while going to the Main Event, but you won't hear from me until late this evening, at best.

There has been some amusement thus far, and a bit more head banging, but no deaths in any direction. So far.

More to come... later.
