I got up late today and installed the Verizon basic DSL stuff, then ran a full system virus check (which took a while). It's definitely a lot faster than dialup. So far, I haven't tried anything that was super-fast with BPL to see how it is with this much slower speed.
I got a call this morning that my new loveseat is here and we arranged for delivery on Monday between 2pm and 4pm. I might get the van back Monday, too, but it won't matter if I have to wait a couple of hours.
There was an excellent Tom Toles cartoon on Tuesday.
