We've had a dearth of Internet since the move in. Today we got a temporary fix and up popped an offline IM from Daniel. It was rather cryptic, indicating he had returned from a mission and had another to leave for.
He didn't report any specifics, and I'll just be happy he's able to get on the Internet occasionally. OMG, how did people do it back in the "good old days" when they couldn't hear from their soldier except when the snail mail brought a letter. I'll be grateful!
