The internet is especially shit, this morning, and for a change, neither I nor my beloved little darlings are at all responsible. No, dear readers, it is none other than my Beloved and their laptop.
If this continues for more than a couple of days, I get to taunt them.

The end of the month and Erastide are coming up. Which means that real soon now, we could have us some NATIONAL BROADBAND! Just in time for the US of A to restrict the interwebs to a slow trickle so that broadcast companies can make lots of money.
This is not going to end well.
The internet was designed to confound a nuclear firkin holocaust. A few money-grubbing idiots aren't going to hold the "fast lanes" for long. They'll become the worst-kept secret on the internet. How to get into the fast lane without even paying.
It'll be phone phreaking all over again. You watch.
