Two tin cans and a string

thI’ve been trying to use the internet since 5 am. No dice. It’s been offline for hours but seems to have offered a sliver of opportunity just now. As it is, I’ve disconnected twice in writing this small bit. Annoying.

A call in to my service provider tells me  they’ll be atop the barn this afternoon to adjust the new doodad up there and pointing it at another tower in the distance will make things much better.  Ah rural internet connections. Since the new barn antennae went up we have reasonable service, but it’s been dicey for the past few days. I used to have the equivalent of two tin cans and a string.

So, I have no time for a longer post today because of this adjusting. Gaa! It just fell off and on again. Time for me to go. If you haven’t read it yet, I encourage you to scroll down and read yesterday’s post on banned books. It’s Banned Books Week. What an eye-opener.



For 100 days, I’ll post something from my chosen topic: Clichés.
There are 31 entries to come.

Here’s a cliché for today:

    I hate when the net goes down for five minutes. Recently Verizon upgraded their upload speed.

    At least two tin cans and a string are hard to hack. Many country’s Intel services are going to old tech like typewriters where the only thing you have to worry about is burning the ribbon.
