The ISP replaced hardware on their end yesterday, which killed service to some customers. They sent a tech out this morning to fix the issue -- for free. That's an apology which turns it from an offense to merely an annoyance. Problem solved, everything back to usual.
I lost a lot of writing time yesterday, but I did manage to finish two pieces. So I'm close to done with the obligatory set of one poem per prompter. Then I can double back, there's a lot of good prompts left. I'll need to revise the rough drafts from yesterday, now that I can actually look up things.
