Moving. Upheaval. Computers.

This morning it rained. I went out and drove in the rain to mail something and drop by the grocery store, before the car shippers came to take my car away. Moving is in full effect.

And their prices are pretty good too. Can't wait to see how their bandwidth and reliability pan out. Waiting for domain name transfer now. Waiting... waiting.
