Not The Best  
So, went golfing today for the first time in almost twenty years. Or at least, went to a driving range. Of course, I guess there's a reason I never spent much time golfing, since while I was hitting the ball more or less in a straight line, maybe not super-far, but farther than ten feet, more or less most of the time, I also destroyed a club and ejected the head somewhere deep into the field (it's still out in the field somewhere, have to see about recovering it in the morning when they open again).

I dunno if this is the sort of thing to convince me I need to pick up golfing. Another expensive hobby... And then, of course, there's my general opinion of golf courses (I'm, uh, pretty strongly anti-). So, I don't think it's going to happen, but I get it was moderate fun. Until I destroyed the equipment, at least (did the same thing to a snowboard binding wiping out last time I snowboarded, too. I'm starting to see a pattern).

Anyway, when we got back, our modem had stopped paying attention to the world -- or maybe, more precisely, the inside world, since nothing could talk to it -- and had to do a hard reset to factory defaults to get it working again. Of course, that lost the PPP login and password.

Can't say I was too impressed with how long it took the tech to get that to me, or with the support in general (once I had the right credentials, I more or less fixed it myself -- I suppose that's all I really wanted, the credentials, but it still took a reboot I initiated on my own to stick).

Feh. I guess it's all better now.

Ah, sounds very nice. I didn't know you'd biked Paris (if you'd mentioned it in LJ, I missed it -- I haven't really been that good at keeping up with things the last couple months).

Paris wasn't recent. The only place I have bicycled outside Kansas recently was in Costa Rica. And I found that I was badly out of shape then.

I started riding consistantly again at the end of April. Getting out about 3 times a week, though I haven't gone over 25 miles and 12 is a lot more common. It is hard to find the time to do more.

I was alrady busy, and when I add in the time for the cycling and a new girlfriend, there is only so much I can do. My reading has suffered.

Yeah, I saw some of the Costa Rica stuff you posted.

Girlfriend? Good for you!
