Was unable to get into my blog last night… some other sites failed as well, but I was able to get into yet others. Must have been something to do with my ISP. I kept getting email notifications about an ongoing discussion on a forum that I wanted to read, but I couldn’t get in!
I whiled away the time by searching for a new ISP, but I haven’t found one that’s at all satisfactory. They cost too much, have too many unwelcome stipulations (e.g. routers you don’t want), have too long a contract, offer too low a download limit, don’t appear to have good customer service, etc etc… at the top of the ISP review site should be a sign: “abandon hope, all ye who enter here!”
Had a short break from Middlemarch while my Kindle recharged. I could have read it while it was recharging, but that would have chained me to my desktop. I picked up a paperback (Homeworld by Harry Harrison) but Middlemarch is my first priority. It would be too infuriating if I stopped at the same spot I broke off at before!
By joining Facebook, I have shaken the resolve of a friend who was determined not to, and now she’s wondering if there’s anything in it for her too. I think it’s a bit of a tiger to have by the tail, but could bring certain benefits. Was going to talk to a cousin about family history.
I wonder if I’ll be able to get into my blog tomorrow… fingers crossed! We haven’t exceeded our download limit, so it’s not that.
I tend to hibernate at this time of year… and just now, the early New Year, is always the worst part. It’s a time when I should be doing this or that, but can’t put my mind to it.
Will potter off now… (Fails to get up from chair).
