Well, my I can't get into my box at home tonight (the IP changed, darn the dynamic IP thing), so I can't read mail (at least the mail that I'd already downloaded), read news, or generally access it to do the things I do when I access it. I made a boo-boo in a script I'd written to deal with this, so it didn't mail me the new IP address. It almost worked -- it sent me mail, anyway (I thought I'd tested it out properly, but apparently not).
Haven't decided yet if I'm going to go ahead and take a day off from the flashfic thing or not. Tired tonight, got up "early" for the Japanese language thing.
