Health and Sources

I know I've been out of pocket a lot lately, but my health has been kind of bad lately. It's hard for me to sit in front of the computer some days and those days have been close together and frequent lately. The cold snap hasn't helped a bit, either. My sinuses have been driving me crazy.

I know, with the Web, there are plenty of sources and places to find stories and so forth, but it's hard on the eyes and takes longer than it should most of the time. Being on dial-up is also just... it's just awful. The hi-speed should be hooked-up later this week or next and things will pick back up some because of that, but researching and reading online is still a pain.

I re-subscribed to Wired today. I had actually sent the thing off a few weeks back, but I called today to find out what was going on and they said they didn't show an order for me. So I sent them a check today. Hopefully, I'll get my first issue in September. I know it's available online, but - like far too many sites these days - it's simply impossible to load on dial-up. Win98 makes it flat-out impossible to get on some sites.

Anyway, I'll have a few things for you tonight/tomorrow, depending on how I feel, and I still haven't finished writing the piece on Microsoft and Yahoo. I know that's been a while back, but I am going deeper than just reporting the details of the deal, so it's taking a moment.
