Apparently, I spoke too soon about the restoration of DSL service in Plummer’s Hollow. This morning, it’s back to dial-up.
I had been planning to resume Smorgasblog, my sideblog of excerpts and links to other blogs, at the beginning of August, but now it’s not clear if we’ll have dependable service again for a while, and it’s simply too time-consuming to try and do it at 28k/sec. So I’ve simply substituted a link to my Google Reader-generated blogroll feed blog in the top bar, in addition to the display of the ten most recent blogroll post titles in the sidebar (now properly formatted to fit the style of the rest of the sidebar). I’ll keep the other list of web links (via del.icio.us) on the presumption that I may get to do some web surfing again at some point. The latest link, to a YouTube video of Muddy Waters performing “Can’t Get No Grinding,” now seems eerily appropriate. What’s wrong with that mill?
And now to put together a Festival of the Trees post. Aaaargh!
