Drebber’s Pockets

Filed under: Uncategorized — Matilda @ 10:47 am

Once again, we offer apologies to our regular readers for lack of updates.  Here in the North Woods, our internet provider seems incapable of providing service.  In our area, summer tourism is quite heavy, as is the tourists’ cell phone and internet usage.  The result is that our internet service provider is spread a little thin (at least that is our theory).  Uploading heavily formatted files and, forbid, graphics is beyond what can be done.  Short e-Mails without attachments usually work, but not much beyond that.  Since Alltel went away we have no choice beyond Verizon, and they continually demonstrate a lack of interest in providing service. AT&T is here, which  if you live on a high hill can do the job, but on our little lake their signal is at zero level, unlike Verizon’s which is simply very low.

In the meantime, readers can wait in anticipation for MEW’s explanation of one of the objects found in Drebber’s pocket, the pocket edition of Boccaccio’s “Decameron”.   If you are a dirty old man like Drebber, or alternatively, a scholarly or literary type,  you  probably know all about it.

In the meantime, let’s hope our 0.05G signal edges a little closer to the 4G signal we keep seeing bragged up on TV commercials.
