My birthfamily's internet connection apparently only works for one computer at a time, and sometimes loads one page, then requires you to open and close your computer before it'll load another.
My parents' internet is intermittent and ludicrously slow (do you remember dialup? I DO) for no apparent reason.
And I have been out of the house and/or away from the computer for most of every day. I was in transit from 9am-4pm today.
My everything is delayed, you guys. I have so little access that I need to triage everything. It will likely take me most of tomorrow just to go through the Arisia lit track changes. I have 80 e-mails backed up that need attention. I see you there, and I ask that you not take offense, because when it takes 15 minutes to send a reply to an e-mail, I just cannot do much. Patience please. It is just physically impossible for me to do much online right now, and I have a lot of time-sensitive stuff that will take up most of that time.
I never say this, but right now the best way to get a hold of me is by phone. I prefer text to voice. A lot. So if you need my immediate attention, text me. That method of communication is the only one that is more than 10% functional at this time.

* We are flying in Thursday evening, via Delta, lord willin' and the crick don't rise. taura_g is our ride and has our information.
* If you do have an urgent matter that requires my immediate response and you don't have my phone number, the people you would expect to have my phone number have my phone number. Ask them. Otherwise, you can of course e-mail me, but understand that I may not be able to respond til 2011.
That is all for now.
