I hate not having a connection to the internet.  I’m doing a thorough scan of my parents ‘puter and am bored to tears.  Can’t use that system, scan will restart.  Although don’t know why I’m bothering, the dang thing restarts again and again anyway.  When I got them this computer it came with ME, and I was too lazy to install XP.  I’m on my laptop, thinking I’ll catch up on blogs in sharpreader, but too many of the posts are intriguing and way too short.  I wish *I* had the option to either get the description or the whole post from the feeds I’m subscribed to.  It’s frustrating wanting to read the rest and not being able to without dialing up.  And I can’t stay dialed up without hogging the phone.  Bah.
