Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
My work this week has been technology-driven; an outage in the neighborhood that the Internet cable company didn't recognize as an outage meant that I went and bought a new modem because the customer service office person did their test and said it was my modem. My router was blinking out lately so I got both. Only to learn the problem was the cold contracting the lines so much that a fitting at the pole in the yard next to mine pulled apart. But since I have the new equipment, it's in for now. I like the router interface a lot more than on previous models and the modem is just another modem, same protocol (Docsis 3.0) - amazing how devices with no moving parts can wear out, but apparently the connections inside are made of very thin wires or printed circuits and they burn out after a while. I'd had the previous modem long enough that it was due to die one of these days.

Paper inventory and organization improved for a while there, but got out of control again during the week. Round two this weekend.

I also liked your song, Bob. Are you a lurker here or did you come across a good song and go looking for a place to park it?
