On the side of a hill in the deep forest green, tracing a sparrow on snow-crested ground,
blankets and bedclothes the child of the mountain sleeps unaware of the clarion call.
On the side of a hill, a sprinkling of leaves washes the grave with silvery tears,
a soldier cleans and polishes a gun.
War bellows, blazing in scarlet battalions, generals order their soldiers to kill
and to fight for a cause they've long ago forgotten

Not so much crow, but humble pie? Yum.

So, this morning my local telecom had an "emergency" opening and we got our DSL installed. Thirty minutes later and we're cooking with gas. At DSL speeds (current top speed I've seen, 110kb/sec). So they were able to get it done before the month long wait they initially quoted.

But then they also called at 8am with a "we can come over right away" message. Fortunately I'm taking some time off (yeah, not so much, see earlier comment about having a work laptop) because of aforementioned Obscure Updatery. So that worked out. Only took 30 minutes, compared to their estimated 3 hours.

So, we can haz broadband.

Congrats on the fast and early broadband install. Now you'll get sucked in even more. :-)

Thanks Vince. I've only had to reboot my entire internal network four times so far. And last night the dial tone to the internet was down. So, broadband to nothing!

What I'm hoping is I can get all those time suck events done quicker now.
