So I've spent the past three days with no working internet connection, which was great because it's not like I wanted to RP or anything, so thanks a ton there, internet provider. They finally sent a guy down to check it out, and (luckily) it wasn't a fried modem this time. There was just a little problem in the wiring that had been apparently waiting until this week to rear its ugly head.
Anyway, as of about three minutes ago, I have a connection again, so hooray for that. I imagine I'll see most of the people who actually read this journal momentarily!
