Radio Silence

Thanks to those who've nudged me, wondering why the hell I haven't posted in over a week.

Truth to tell, in order to keep the wolves away I've taken a six-month contract job at a place that is so paranoid about security, they allow their workers no Internet access whatsoever. Not just firewalls and blocked YouTube vids: none whatsoever. The Twin Towers could fall again, I'd never know about it until I got home. They're not evil; they make no guns or bombs or rockets, and they actually help people and make their lives better. But they are extremely concerned with security. So my blogging time is limited to evenings and weekends, and Christ knows what I'm going to do with my lunch-hours and slow moments. Catch up on my reading or something, I guess. There are quite a few public WiFi spots within easy reach; maybe I'll take to having my lunch there.

Meantime, the old resume goes back out. This cannot go on.

Try the RSS feed, Giggles. What posts I'm able to manage will come to you instead of you having to come here. Right column, at the bottom.

Hey, I feared you were ill, or kidnapped or something. This is better.
All the best.

Can't you make an internet out of a styrofoam cup and some aluminum foil from the lunchroom or something?

I wish I could get some downtime!

My freelance jobs (like now) are always the 'putting out the fires' variety. No time to worry about filling in slow points.

Thus, I am at least a month behind on MY blog!

Sigh.

Blackberry 'click'? Dunno. Seems weird to me.
