8/16. I always forget that our DSL modem is something you can turn off/on. When I was ready to upload this picture and I couldn't connect I wasted plenty of time rebooting, running a bot check, even calling about our account (and having to respond to questions asked by a computer on the other end that couldn't understand my voice half the time). Until a real person in India or somewhere reminded me to try switching off the modem for a few seconds. So silly.
Old English word of the day:
Interestingly, modern "turnip" comes from turn (probably from its being shaped like something turned on a lathe) + M.E. nepe (turnip, rape; from O.E. nǽp, L. napus). Scots have a word, "neep."dysig [roughly, dü'-zē]: foolish, irrational.(dysigdóm, dysignes: folly.)
