Stupid Modem. The good news is that is was a Comcast problem and not something I did so I saved $50. The bad news is that I was down for 24 hours. I've become so spoiled.
I'll try to get back later. Meantime I hope Tim's emergency post last night counts as a day. I was on one phone while he was on the other leading him by the hand through signing in as me, typing the short post, and actually posting it.
Thanks Tim. Now you know how to start your own Blog.
