it works! small happy dance, big sigh of relief. note to other non computer idiots, when you replug in modems, turn the power off first. then connect everything, then back on. now I have the internet! yippee! without running up and down and rearranging a bunch of cables. yes.
now, I have decided to post small sections of my work, and invite people to rip it apart.
because alien skin magazine does it, and I sent a story in, and i thought most of the their comments were helpful. not all, maybe, but they had some good points. and I got a free t-shirt. very nice. of curse, people read blogs upside down, really, because if you put a story in three sections, people see the end first, then the rest. but still. I'll think I'll give it a try, and please, feel free to tell me what you really think, even negative comments, as long as it's true.
