Back home in the world of lesser technology, we had this thing called internet that was actually a reliable service. Somehow, coming to SF changed that for me. My internet connections, both at home and at the office (different providers) are consistently slower than my internet back home. On top of that, I never know when I might not be able to connect at all. I'm not quite sure how it happens that I move 2000 miles closer to Silcon Valley and get more limited access to the world wide web. Well, maybe Google can help.
