So this post is not the usual Friday Roundup, which is half-written and will likely remain unfinished. The sporadic internet access problems Crabby was having for the last few days? They are no longer sporadic but now are continuous. She lost her connection midmorning and it is still gone.
The issue seems to involve her computer's inability to connect to the LAN or something like that; Crabby does not quite understand it all. She was using wireless but that too has ceased to function.
This sad little update is being composed on the Lobster's laptop computer, which works just fine! Unfortunately, the Lobster needs her computer for an actual job. It is hard for Crabby to ask: "Could you please stay home from work, Lobster, so that Crabby may attend to her blogging duties?"
So Crabby will do the best she can to get the Damn Thing fixed. Hopefully, this will be resolved soon! Thank you all for your patience. (And to hell with her HP laptop which has already required three expensive repair bills even though it is only two years old!)
