Once again I have to apologize for updating the site a little later in the morning. It appears that the situation with my satellite internet has transformed from a "Mother Nature screwed me over" thing into a "Tom can't solve his own technical problem" thing.

For the life of me, I can figure out what's wrong. I bring up Explorer, it tells me it can't make a connection. I check my Network Adaptor information, it tells me that the networking cable isn't hooked up. I look at my networking cable and it is clearly plugged into the wall and computer. I think my computer is trying to trick me.

Regardless, now I have to put in a call to customer service where I'm sure their answer will be something obvious like "Did you check to make sure your cable is connected?" or something equally lame. If any of you have suggestions, please contact me.

Obviously this snafu with my internet connection is throwing a monkey wrench into my plans for replacing the forums and adding a Bonus Materials section. Since I'll be out of town this weekend, it looks like these two items will have to wait until next week.

Stay tuned for updates!

Alright. I'm wearing your dippy costume. Now let me in to see the movie.

Fine, I just need to see your M.E.N.S.A. card.

M.E.N.S.A. card? Oh, gee. I think I left it in my other hemp satchel. I have some Mentos. Will that do?

I'm afraid not. Clarence, could you come down here?

Please escort this buffoon off the premises.

Heh, heh! You know, Clarence, Mentos are the freshmaker!

Silence is golden.
