I just love, no, hate! the Internet

I had a nice post all loaded and ready to go last night and couldn't connect my computer to my hotspot on my nice new phone with what I think is a nice new expensive plan. I also couldn't connect to the park's wifi - again - and after trudging to the post office for one last try, Blogger kept sending out error messages and I couldn't post. Sigh. I just gave up. The internet is like food for me; it can be my best friend and it can be my worst enemy. I shall prevail, though, I just know it, and tonight will see me back in cyberspace.

However, even as a volunteer I'm aware of not being on my own time and right now I'm on government time. Back to work for me (as of yesterday I have scanned and converted about 700 articles, manuscripts, theses, even books, on the Triassic era) because I'm not done yet. In the home stretch on this particular project but not quite there. 

Thought of the day:

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There's no point in being a damn fool about it.  (W.C. Fields)
