I just spent the first 2-1/2 hours since I’ve been home fixing a major problem with my Internet connection caused by dutifully installing the latest XP update, which happened to conflict with ZoneAlarm. Of course, half the problem was caused by my brilliant proactive approach to Net connection problems before calling tech support, which is to reset the modem and then to promptly forget all of my system login information.

I also came home to a kitten who had locked himself in the bedroom. Doh!

Oh, and I am FUMING at Obama for the FISA fiasco. ARGH!

It’s just one of those nights.
