A Pause for Station Identification

Well, I've made it through NaBloPoMo and managed to post every day. I didn't do quite so well with NaNoWriMo: between one thing and another, I only wrote about 20,000 words, to a goal of 50,000. Still, hell, I did manage to get out 20,000, which is nothing to sneeze at.

Unfortunately, my internet is still on the fritz, which means that I only have about 45 minutes per day (thank god for the New York Public Library system, without which I would be completely cut off!). I'm going to use the remainder of today's time (about 28 minutes) to check out your blogs. I'm sorry for being an absentee commenter of late!

In other news, I will try to keep up a pretty agressive posting schedule, although I won't be able to post every day. Much, of course, will depend on the regularity of my internet access.

Best,

Crankster

  • Pool-
    It's a bummer, isn't it?

    Regarding libraries, I'm the world's biggest fan right now.

    Casdok-
    Thanks--and thanks for dropping in!

  • Keep up the good fight. Damn that Verizon!

    Minneapolis has just about finished installing citywide wireless. Not the fastest thing in the world, but I can access from virtually anywhere in the city now—not just outside Dunn brothers.

  • I have been having problems with the Internet, and I don't use Verizon. The whole system is slowing down. And it's getting ugly out there!

  • Excuse my ignorance, but what on earth is 'NaBloPoMo' and 'NaNoWriMo'?

    Is this some kind of code, or have I merely joined the ranks of the terminally unhip?

  • Mystic Wing-
    Right there with you!

    And I'm blown away about Minneapolis. It sounds amazing. Then again, my aunt who's set up homes all around the world, has often told me that Minneapolis was her favorite place to live.


    CEO-
    Maybe it'll slow down after the holidays, when everybody's finished with their online shopping.


    Nosjunkie-
    It's not that I'm committed, it's that I'm addicted!


    Puss-
    Quite the contrary. NaNoWriMo is "National Novel Writing Month," and NaBloPoMo is an imitator, "National Blog Posting Month."

    Basically, your ignorance of these titles is further proof of your incredible coolness. I, on the other hand, can make no such claim!


    Matt-
    This too shall pass. I will survive...I can't think of a good third cliche to fill out the cycle.

    Yeah, it sucks.

  • Odat-
    Thanks for the warm thoughts. There may be a light at the end of the tunnel.

    I still hate Verizon.
