It only took four days, but the new "cable" people managed to show up to "install" my new internet connection. The people on the phone at the main office were insistent that their service wouldn't work with our old from-Cox modems; of course the tech showed up with the exact same modem in hand. He suggested that I would be able to get a refund if I return it, so we'll see.
I seem to have lost the ability to do puzzles recently also. I fear that my run at the top of Justin's leaderboard is over, as I'm looking at two puzzles that I'm stuck on. And the latest issue of P&A! The warmup puzzles are the usual fare, but I've only got 3 (well, really 2.9) of the puzzles solved. Just because I know my Monty Python doesn't mean I can solve the Monty Python puzzle; just because I can solve the sudoku doesn't mean I can solve the sudoku puzzle; and so on. I think I need more sunlight.
