People at UCCForums with dialup are complaining they can’t read their denominational site at all, and and me with my poor DSL line can’t get any functionality. Except Hans the UCC Answer Guy. Perhaps I’ll have better luck at Day Job: we have a T-1 line there. Perhaps.

Now the irony is I have an article scheduled to release at 8am EDT where I criticize proprietary software, especially that which skates close to free and open source software (FOSS) — Opera is like this.
