Spotty Internet

Well, I hate to admit this, but I am currently having to deal with very intermittent Internet access, hence the lack of posting. Here are some quick lessons learned from this experience:

1. I typically write posts on the Sunday before the week. I now realize that I should build some posts in advance and schedule the release in order to ensure that there is new content on my site. I will shoot for a 4 week library, in order to ensure that you don't run out of at least some content again.

2. Internet is not uniform where ever you go. I was working off a new service provider, and ran into two issues: a firewall issue when connecting to a VPN, and an issue with the reliability of the network. End result was that in order to do some of my regular work, I needed to find a local provider different from the common provider of the area, because the firewall appears to be universal for that provider. After hitting a variety of fast-food restaurants, I sat outside a Starbucks and finished my critical work (although there is always more to do).

So, I will explain what happened in my next blog post. Otherwise, have a great 4th of July, enjoy the weather if you can, and I'll talk with you again next week!
