The Reality You Have Accessed Is...Disconnected

Thanks to a screw-up at my local ISP, my Internet and e-mail services were shut off for most of Saturday but were restored early Sunday morning.

While I still don't know the reason for the error -- apparently a paperwork mistake arising from the recent addition of a second telephone line gave birth to a DSL disconnection blunder -- that is why I never I never returned to post weekend reading as promised, for which I apologize.

(What is there, some kind of karmic or astrological obstruction monster lurking in my neighborhood? Maybe that was the bright light in the sky the other night...which you can see for yourself here.)

In any case -- fate, the gods of the Internet and the troll that lives inside my computer all willing -- I'll be back with more tomorrow.

Wow, that freaky! The meteor shower, that is...
ISP crashes aren't very freaky at all.

What's even freakier is the media confusion: at one point, Associated Press was calling it a "hoax" and implying that all the supportive observations were deliberate lies. Right -- as if those light bursts, thunderous explosions and the resulting zig-zags on the seismographs were just prankster prevarications...

Sounds to me as if somebody -- or several somebodies -- had a bad case of hysterical denial, post-9/11 "Islam Means Peace" Syndrome reductio ad absurdum.
