I’m back

Of course, I never left, but the satellite connection to the world went down. Today, fifteen days after the connection went down, a nice service person arrived, and about 3 hours and one defective LNB replacement later, I’m back on. He says the transmitter wasn’t grounded, and hints that may be why the LNB died.

The good news is that my connection is faster; not enough faster to make me stop wishing for “DSL in my area”, but better.
