Challenges...

I woke up this morning to a non-functional DSL. Not a huge problem as we have another internet connection we can use.

But, you probably wouldn't understand that, since I used to be in the computers and networking business (still am but in a much diminished role), I feel as though I should be able to fix these problems as quickly as they show up. I should be that good. Don't ask me why I need to be that good - it's just the way I'm wired.

Anyway, I'm posting this from another computer/network since the best that I could do for this morning was to set it all aside and decide I will get to deal with this after my head has cleared some.

I think I know what's going on (my router failed) - I think I know what to do next (I have another router) - why I feel so incredibly failed at this has nothing to do with the technology and has everything to do with my character defects and a spiritual malady I've been trying for 25 years to get over.

I thought this was just about not drinking...

We are thinking along the same lines this morning I guess. Those defects are a bummer at times.

If it was just about not drinking, I would have graduated some time ago.

Don't I wish. As I know you know, the not drinking is just the start.

The not drinking is a pretty important part though.
