After many hours of searching, I finally found the CD ROM with which to install my Intarwebs service on Gladys. After many more hours of diddling about I almost got the instllation done, but a recurring hangup prevented my completion of the task until I finally called AT&T's support line and had the guy in India fix it for me. That took about an hour.

In the meantime, Windows Update kept fetching two years of updates that Gladys Laptop was missing. Widnows fetched them using Gladys Human's unsecured wireless network. I never instructed Windows to do this. It apparently has a mind of its own. The tech support guy in India finally had me disable the wireless connection, once we figured out that it was interfering with the setup uf my AT&T connection. Computers is weird.

Anyway, the night is almost gone and I have to sleep. Gladys Laptop can sleep now, too, and Gladys Human can have her wireless to herself again— unless, of course, somebody else is leeching off of it. If there is, I bet it's Bill Gates.

Oh, still no spellcheck. I never loaded it onto Gladys.
