while I take care of personal stuff and upgrade.
Currently I am using AOL dial-up and Windows ME on a four-year-old laptop that didn't work well even when it was new, and now barely functions. Needless to say, using the internet is simply painful.
Fortunately a favorable change in circumstances will allow me to upgrade to a brand-new Mac, and get broadband from a more reliable IP while I'm at it. I expect the whole process to be complete by about June 15, after which I'll be able to get a lot more done, faster, with less headache and heartbreak. Until then I will be posting occasionally; Morning Report will be on light duty.
