There seems to be a problem with my Internet connection and/or computer. I'm guessing it's the Internet connection, since the 'in-house' performance seems normal. We tend to have trouble as spring approaches, and during heavy rain.
Sorry about that.
I hope this clears up soon: until then, I've reduced resolution/picture quality rather dramatically.
So it's not you that's got the problem: those postage-stamp-size pixels are about the best that I can coax out of my connection now.
I'm a sixty-something married guy with six kids, four surviving, in a small central Minnesota town.
One of the kids graduated from college in December, 2008, and is helping her husband run a factory; another is a cartoonist; #3 daughter is a writer; my son is developing a digital game with #3 and #1 daughters, and has a day job.
I mostly write and make the occasional bit of digital art.
