Pinging in the Rain

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Well, I'm sure rain will come soon enough. My point: I finally implemented network access in my room, with Michael's help. Finally, broadband on Unix in my room! I never knew I wanted this till now, much as with my recent NewsBruiser upgrade. Thanks, guys! ("Guys" here includes the inventors of broadband and python and all the foundations for my current fun.)
