Updates? Are you sure you want them?

1. The wiring in our house for our cable/Internet is bad. It needs to be replaced and to get someone out here will take two to three weeks. We were told this was great news because it usually takes about 6 months (... lucky us...). This means that I am currently stealing Internet (sorry neighbors! But you do have an unsecured line...).

2. My monitor was damaged in the move. It now has a big black spot right in the center of the screen.



I am SO NOT HAPPY. If anyone knows where I can take this in Okinawa to get this fixed, I would be grateful if you can pass along the info.

3. Got notes back from agent... It looks like I have some plot work to do. This is very unhappy news, but I can fix it.

  4. Well that all sucks! But, I'm pretty sure it's all fixable with time.

  5. Selfishly, I'm just hoping your internet gets up and running soon.

    The black spot on the monitor would drive me crazy!

    Work on that book!

  8. Hopefully my similar experience can give you hope. We have a very similar looking monitor (MAG 17" flat panel). When it arrived with our shipment 20 months ago it was nearly new & working, but with a vertical hot pink line running from top to bottom just left of center, right in the line of sight! I was not happy. I'm not sure exactly how long afterwards but basically when I was thoroughly used to ignoring it, it just disappeared one day! The monitor is now fine & very much not looking forward to our upcoming move BACK!
