slow connection, ergo no updates

Since we moved out to the country (7 miles out of town), we have been unable to get any high-speed Internet connection. There is no DSL and no cable, and satellite costs about $700 to install and $100/mo. That could work, particularly with my company paying for it, but from all the reviews I’ve read, satellite is fairly unreliable, and particularly slow on the upstream. And the required year-long contract is about 6 months longer than we’ll be in this place.

So I’m left with dialup, which is incredibly crappy out here (we’re lucky to get 26k on these old copper lines). I end up getting by for work purposes, but it just leaves me fatigued to use the Internet for much of anything else besides work. Hence no updates.
