Yes folks, the grand nightmare of not having home internet is finally over.
Why was it so horrific, you wonder, since I still managed to post once in a while and get some e-mailing done? Let me see if I can explain.

Time became my enemy, when right now time should be my friend because I have time to figure out where I am heading
