The weather here continues to be very pleasant — it's shirtsleeve weather. But the internet connection continues to be lousy. We had a repairman out from the phone company this morning, and he spent a good hour working on it out at the various switching boxes in the complex. Despite that, the connection is painfully slow... when it works at all.
