Am I only as good as my internet connection? Living on a boat, our internet connection varies from tide to tide, to how much moisture is on the line, to who knows what. Right now; and this is why I'm writing this; our connection is as good as it gets. Yesterday and for the last few days it was not. I was frustrated. I got a headache. I spent an hour trying to print out a label to send a Kit to Simon in the UK. Finally, I got it to s-l-o-w-l-y work and was successful.
