Hello World!

Today I joined the Y2Ks. Yes, after weeks of internet connectivity drama and a few days with no access at all, I have graduated beyond the 56k dial up modem.

I haven't gone ADSL or anything, because I'm cheap. But I am now more than twice as fast as I was before at 128k. And I'm old enough to have owned a state of the art Spectrum +3 computer that everyone thought was flash because it had 128k of memory.

The biggest drama of setting the whole thing up was making ICQ work on the new connection. That took all afternoon of fiddling with various settings.

It's so nice not to have to load web pages in advance of viewing them any more. I can listen to BigMog Radio without the connection cutting out every five minutes. And I can access the TT archives for the Trek Two Years Ago feature in these columns without crashing my computer. Of course it would help if there were some news in there to report.
