Well, back from the dead may be a bit melodramatic, but I was without internet service for most of the last 100 hours. Sporadically on and off initially, then completely out. Courtesy of a failed cable modem from TimeWarner. My first cable modem (a Toshiba unit) lasted over 8 years, but this one (RCA-Thomson) went belly-up after only 18 months. They wanted to send a technician five days from now, but fortunately I was able to impose upon a friend to take me to one of their service centers for a replacement. I already felt like a fish out of water after these few days without internet access – no way I could wait another five days. Guess which modem I was handed this time? Yup, another RCA-Thomson. But the rep told me the last one was a refurbished unit, and this one is brand new, lol. We’ll see.
For those wondering why part 3 of my last post is still awaiting scene summaries, that is the reason. I will rectify this issue shortly.
As to the heads-up, one of the very last things I managed to do before my involuntary absence from the ‘net, was to request an interview with Burning Angel headliner Draven Star. Draven was gracious enough to accept the request. It’s too early to project a posting date, because I first need to work up some intelligent questions, and then Draven (who’s a busy young lady), needs to find time to respond. But I hope to have the interview completed and ready for upload in the 5/20 – 5/31 time frame. So if you have questions for Draven, leave them as a comment to the forthcoming post, and you may very well receive an answer. Don’t post your questions here …. because I’ll steal them, lol.
Finally, my thanks to Ms. B #1, and Ms. B #2 (I won’t embarrass you with full names, but you know who you are) from the VideoBox home office, who helped me on the phone yesterday. Much appreciated.
