Our connection is restored!

Proving that I might still be worth my salary as a network administrator, once I get home, I have gotten our internet connection restored.

Friends and family members should shortly be inundated with e-mails, and skype calls.

Proving how dull life is, that's the biggest news to report. But at least I'm a hero again. I'd rather be well thought of by these few guys than by every show girl in Las Vegas.

Quick update

Well, our internet woes continue. We're waiting on the company to ship us a replacement router/modem...and we keep waiting.

There are lights at the end of the tunnel though. We haven't been told yet exactly when we're leaving, but we know it's probably sometime in July. We're already starting to pack a few things up. Winter clothes, and other less necessary items are being boxed and put in shipping containers.

Life in general remains the same. Groundhog's Day Pt 380 something. We went over a year on the ground in Iraq earlier this month, right about the same time all the active duty units in theater found out they were being extended 3 months as well. Morale's better than could be expected despite this, but everyone (of course) is looking forward to getting home.

Well, I'm just hopping through the computer lab to post this, so I can't stay on very long. Please forgive all spelling and grammatical errors as I'm in a bit of a rush.

Be safe, and we'll be home as soon as we can be!

Lost our internet

Our satellite router cooked a circuit board, and is no longer functioning. We're sending it back to Poland in the hopes that they'll send us a replacement quickly, but it's likely to be a few weeks at least.

I'll try to get on here every 3 or 4 days to catch up, but won't be able to check e-mail and things daily as before.

Oh well, at least our time is running down...slowly but surely.

Be well everyone, and I'll keep in touch as best I can.
