A Mo-wha?

It's called a modem, little Johnny. It's short for modulator/demodulator, and it allows nice clean digital signals to pass over dirty analog lines- typically to push beautiful ethereal TCP/IP over clunky POTS (Plain Ol' Telephone Service) lines.

What this means to you the reader is that I'm trapped on the other side of a dialup connection in a strange land lacking an abundance of wireless.

I suppose that I could attempt to compose a blog post offline. The muse may not favor me without a live distraction to the intarweb, however. We shall see.
