Yeah, one hundred and nine email messages. It’s mostly junk mail but I got a ton of stock tips, a slew of “enhancement” offers, a zillion opportunities to list iWalt.com on a variety of search engines, and dozens of other friendly messages from people and organizations I pray I never hear from again. And I got a couple of actual messages from friendly folk like you. =-)
Delightfully, I got home and found that instead of the DSL being activated as EarthLink had indicated it should be, my phone line had gone dead. A couple of calls to PacBell magically righted the situation and after a brief negotiation between the PowerBook, the router, the DSL modem, and the PPPoE server, I’m happily back up and running. Now coming to you live from Berkeley.
[Tidbits: Kottke, fresh off his upgrade to MovableType, has made some changes to his blog. It looks nice. Speaking of MovableType, Todd Dominey points out the improvements in the new version as well as the freshly redesigned site. Rachelle has joined the slew of friends who have recently purchased a Canon digital camera. I highly recommend them and everyone I know who’s bought one would (I think) agree. Both Rachelle and Jessyca are blogging about the “Under God” issue. I say take it out. And while you’re at it, quit printing “In God We Trust” on the money. Yeesh.]
