I can start to blog again: the Wi-Fi broadband satellite thingummy seems to be working, (touches wood), after several days of false starts and frustration. It's much slower than cable broadband back home but, wtf, it'll do. Listen live radio works, but sound shite. Podcasts can be downloaded, more or less in the time it would take to listen to them.
No telly at the moment, either. I'm enjoying reading. It feels good to be away from booze and information overload. I'm sleeping soundly.
