Yes, I’m still around. Posts will be a bit on the slow side this week, for a couple of reasons:
First, I’ve been feeling under the weather a bit lately – and I’ve been focusing on getting more rest. The prolonged period of colder weather most of the Eastern United States has been getting has been kicking my butt, even though Florida has been spared it for the most part. It’s been around 60 for highs here for a set of days, with lows around 45 or so – by no means, the “Polar Express” the Midwest and parts of the South are getting. Believe me, I’ve seen worse cold here – but regularly it comes and goes, and within two or three days it’s back to normal.
On Friday, I’m making a big transition to a faster Internet. I was with AOL from 1996 to 2006, then had a DSL line from 2008 to now. My cable company has offered a faster Internet for years now, and the deal has gotten too sweet for me to pass up. I’ll be going from a speed of 3 MB per second to a published speed of 100 MB a second – and if I even got half of that, I’d make the jump.
As a result, I may not have an internet connection parts of Thursday and/or Friday. I’ll still have my weekly “Flashback” piece – it just may not be ready for posting until Friday night or Saturday.
