The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

No carrier detected

As an old-line IT guy, I don't even bother to look up when someone mentions, say, flashing a BIOS.

Then I saw what Michele was going through with her modem:

Please, I admonished it. Please work.

It just winked and winked. I think it laughed. In fact, I know it laughed.

Until finally:

Maybe you could just flash me or something?

Excuse me?

Hey, modems have needs, too. Come on, show me your tits.

No wonder I never have any luck with comm devices.

But one question remains: would this technique have worked for Susanna?

If I had not gone over to read Dustbury I would never have found michele's perverse interlude with her computer's hardware.* *Now surely that qualifies as a pundit?......[read more]

Well, without going into detail, I can confidently say that flashing my modem would not have helped, since doing so would not have given it any information it wasn't already well acquainted with. From a distance, of course. That post from Michele, on its own, makes it clear she doesn't live alone.
