Downtime and uploads

We took Venetia to see the mudpuppies last night, so additional photos should be available shortly. When we got back, our cable — Internet and TV alike — was out. Persona said this morning that a fire had cut the fibre-optic cable (see previous entry); service wasn’t restored until late this afternoon, which all things considered was pretty fast, and better than they had predicted (always a good strategy). In the meantime, I installed the new iLife and iWork suites, which arrived yesterday. (So far so good, but with surprisingly sluggish moments which are hopefully anomalous.)
