Slightly Connected

Sometimes those connection problems come in the most interesting ways.

I took a few minutes over lunch today to try and get DSL working. We've got ADSL and it actually works way out here in Elbert county, CO. The Qwest wizard worked great and I setup the modem in the bed room, using a hutch as a desk. Everything's working great, as evidenced by the blog post.

But I'm about to go down. My wife wants the furniture moved, so I've got to disconnect the modem and go back to work. It would have gone down soon anyway as I need to get it in the office, but the office is desks in disarray and a bunch of boxes, so it's basically an unusable room right now.
