Arrgh! The damn Interlink Hawaii DSL is giving me only 1/2 of the Internet now! What a mess. Dialup still works, but it's SO SLOW. T. is on the phone trying to get the situation straightened out, but we are probably going to have to get cable. Such a mess.
But I have been doing more reading and have written an essay here that some of you might be interested in looking at. We have entered a new era without quite knowing what's happened.
