Sorry for my absence. We have internet issues.

Still do, actually. We had an OLD linksys cable gateway (modem and router in one device) that had become a bit temperamental and would crash if we connected to the wifi, so we got a Belkin wifi router and got it going. Then a while later the linksys started to act up more and we all had to move out ethernet connections to the Belkin and leave only the one connection to the belkin plugged into the linksys. Then another while later the linksys started randomly deciding to not allow us onto the internet. Then, my brother that bought the belkin needed it back, so we got a new d-link router. We thought that would help, but the linksys decided to completely ignore the d-link. So we had to try plugging back in to the linksys for a little while. Finally we got a new motorola cable modem and plugged it in. It took a tech coming to our house to get it to connect to the internet, but now the modem is online and working. Mostly. It still doesn't connect to the router, but my brother is on the phone with the d-link people and motorola people to try to get answers. So for now we are down to the one port on the modem, so we're rationing out internet like food in a war.

IKR. As a huge geek, I tell a story like this around a campfire to scare people, since ghost stories stopped being scary a long time ago.
