Normal Service now resumed

On Thursday, my Internet connection became unreliable. So much so that I couldn't post.
On Friday, I couldn't get on the Internet at all.
On Saturday, there was a loud POP and the set-top box that provided the cable TV service and Internet connection blew up.

They've just replaced it with a new one. Parts of the old one may be salvageable, but when the power supply shorted out, it took the display (at least) with it. I was lucky nothing else it was connected to got fried.

So expect a backlog of daily posts to be cleared over the next few days, starting with Today's Battle over at the Huffington Post of all places.

You should've posted and at least told us! Seriously, can you claim the display on insurance?
