WHEN IT RAINS, IT POURS!
------------------------

We removed everything from our home to have new carpeting installed
recently. Everything, including cable modems, routers, and hubs. When
we moved everything back in the house we weren't able to establish a
connection to the internet! How did we ever get along without this
stuff? Two weeks and two Comcast service calls later we're back
online, for better or worse. At the same time I replaced my aging
computer, which sounded like a good idea at the time.

I'm ready for camping!
