Technology news

First, I took our children to the central playground this morning, and I was floored to find out that there is now wifi there. I felt like I was in America. I had my Kindle with me, optimistically hoping that Bogdan would give me a few minutes to read Anna Karenina. So, when I saw people out there with laptops, I tried to connect, and sure enough! It worked. Amazing. No more sending Will to Zaporozhya to reset my Kindle after it freezes up now.

And second, the AO forum that I have been working so hard on is open now:


In just the first few days, we've already overloaded our server. Overall it is going well, though. We're almost up to 1000 members: 996 at the moment, to be exact. It's going to be a great resource for the AO world! I have really been enjoying the fellowship there, and I've been learning so much about CSS and PHP and everything behind the scenes that sometimes it feels like my head can't hold it all. That full head is a very good feeling for me.

Third, tomorrow we're leaving technology behind for a day at our dacha. We haven't made it out there since we got back from our big trip, and we all can't wait to see it again!
