If you've been reading the strip, you know by now I'm in a state of internet connection hell. The one I've used every other time I've been in DC has been down two days now, so drastic measures had to be taken!
I discovered that if I hold my laptop in the air and press it against the driveway-side window on the upper level, I can get ONE AWESOME BAR OF CONNECTIVITY! I connect, load up a page, sit down and do what I need to do, raise the laptop back up and click the send button. Brilliant!
I'm glad to have anything, because I was losing my fingerlickin' mind when I thought I was helplessly disconnected. Unless my regular connection comes back, I likely won't hit the internet again until it's time to upload. (Which I'll try to upload early, due to paranoia.)
But there is a silver lining! Without any internet distraction, all I could do was work! I had 12 strips ready for inking. Now I have .5 strips ready for inking. 11 strips completed in one day!
Today the goal is to try this no-internet, forced-concentration thing on painting. Will it work? Nope! Now that I *expect* it, I'm doomed to fail.
