I was away for a few days, raiding the countryside. I took a “notebook” with me, but someone had conveniently removed the power supply. (According to "someone," it's all my fault.) Then I tried to post from a hotel, but that didn’t work, either, and the new cell phone I just got a carrier for (AT & T), required all sorts of stuff the old crappy one didn’t require. An account with Google?
So, I am now ensconced at my old crappy desk, which I rescued from the garbage at the curb 12 years ago, with my crappy, unsalvageable Dell, and can get back to fighting with The Boss and my chief of research. Home, sweet home!
