You might be wondering why I've disappeared from various places I normally show up during the day:

  • The Smalltalk IRC Channel
  • Google Chat
  • Etc

Well, it has to do with the constrained internet connection I have here at work. Skype works, but no other IM clients I've tried do. I can't get to IRC at all, and much of the wider web (including all streaming video sites) is just blocked. So... I can only see the full net after hours. Since I try to work long hours while I'm here (I leave early Friday to fly home), that puts me out of pocket for a large part of the day.

Eventually, I'll be able to work remotely at least some of the time, and things will be back to normal that way. In the meantime, I get a pretty decent amount of Smalltalk done, since there's so little distraction. Upsides, downsides :)
