ah technology - sweet mistress of madness

Modern technology is a wonderful thing - if I unplug my DSL and wireless network and plug in a modem and dial a free ISP like AOL (hey, I get a free account still, I'm a journalist, it doesn't count as a sin), I can plug in a USB handset and make phone calls over the Net. No biggie, but it's taken 3 days to make it work because (paraphrase) 'networks are hard'. Geekspeak: it won't work with NAT.
Why, you ask? Oh, I'm writing about it, this is just displacement activity but now I can actually do my writing!

Waves and hugs and bounces to everyone!
