Not that five days of continual rain has anything to do with it, but I’ve had no access to the internet until today. Or to qualify that, no independent access, meaning until I really looked at my long list of internet access settings I’ve compiled from years of traveling and leeching other people’s bandwidth, I thought I was going to have to buy a dialup card or something.

I was going to describe where the settings that allow me to post this came from, but … for once I’ll shut up, no? (It cuts out all the time also) Anyway, I have rediscovered the slowness of 56k. It is glacial. Prehistoric neandertal grunts. I decided to blog in morse code from now on. And I’ll try to blog more in May.

56k narrowband

Posting will resume on Friday when I get back to Taipei and broadband heaven. Lots of art and climbing stories for your enjoyment, but posting on 56k is my idea of entering a world of pain. Sorry to everyone who has been coming here the last week and getting a big fat nothing in return for your bandwidth. In the meantime, I’m in Taizhong for Chinese New Year, and expect to be much fatter in 72 hours.
