Ziyal officially returns to the world of the Internet this evening with a connection twice as fast as the old one, completely free for me. Speakeasy decided to upgrade my connection, and I wasn't about to complain. :) My ssh connection to Ziyal died around 1230, and all I had to do to get it back up and running was powercycle my DSL modem. (I should have called Gem and told her to do it.) I'm now happily downloading Debian packages at 160 kB/s; formerly, I maxed out at 65 kB/s. My uplink has allegedly doubled in speed as well, from 128 kb/s (that's bits, not bytes) to 256 kb/s.

Bitscape, age 26, is a highly sought white hat hacker and an agent of
social subversion. An avid fan of salsa, developer-centric web design,
and cheesy pop music, Bitscape co-creates a world of love and
acceptance by sharing his vision. He enjoys helping low-tech firms
define their offline strategy, and he's advised many anonymous
unknowns, including the homeless on Pearl Street, escaped mental
patients, and hookers on East Colfax. As an aspiring web bum, he
applies his knowledge to a community venture, the Content Collective.
Bitscape resides in Westminster, Colorado, but may soon be moving into
a van down by the river. For speaking arrangements, don't bother
calling. Your bits will be lost in the noise.
