Blogging at 56K

Arrived JFK last night around 11:20. Cab to the village, a little late night conversation, and then sleep. Now it’s just after 10:30 a.m. east coast time, so about 7:30 to my west-coast head. Soon I’ll go out in search of coffee and a newspaper. In the meantime, I couldn’t resist connecting over my host’s phone line.
This page seems to load up fairly readily over the modem, so that’s gratifying. Doing text like this is not too bandwidth-intensive, so I’m not noticing any issues. I think I do have to change my outgoing mail servers since I use Earthlink for dialup when on the road (Pacbell, er SBC DSL when at home).
After all the traffic the last few days I’m curious about spillover today and also further links in, so next step in my routine, besides looking at mail, will be a little referrer log browsing.
This is not to say that I won’t plug into a fast connection if I find one. There must be a cybercafé somewhere nearby.
