That's computer talk for yippeee!!! I have internet at my apartment! Thanks to my neighbor, who is letting me hop onto his internet, and to my good friend Horace, who navigated through the electronic gunk to get me into the modern age.
Can you believe that I haven't had internet in nearly 2 weeks? And that I survived? And I don't have cable on my tv, which means that all I get on my tv is fuzzy nbc and abc (which isn't too bad once you get used to it). So, for the last two weeks, the only noise in my apartment was my radio. Looking back, it kinda felt like I was in the radio age and sat by the radio while eating dinner, sitting in my apartment, cleaning, etc.
But now that era has ended and I have entered the 21st century - just 8 years late.
