so funny that this brand targeted me
as a demographic match
a potential interested buyer of their products
based upon my personal interests on Facebook.
apparently i appear to be
a whiskey/bourbon drinking
engraved glass collecting
john wayne type.
and a southern lady.
(i guess i am from the south, if you consider michigan “the south”
in relation to the border we share with canada)

since the invention of call waiting.”
“your modem has seen its last days.”
these are the words
that two different
comcast/xfinity customer service phone helper elves
uttered to me
when i read them the 267 digits and a couple of random letters
imprinted on the back of my modem
what it was/was not doing
is this grim prognosis part of the script?
we then went through
a series of modem exercises
as a last ditch effort
to try to revive it
all were hit or miss
all to no avail
until it was confirmed
that it had indeed
we scheduled an appointment
to have an elf come and remove the old one
to replace it with
a new, younger and more glamorous model
though we had no history
and i feared it would never be the same.

the trojan room coffee pot – action shot
the trojan room coffee pot was a coffee machine located next to the old computer lab of the university of cambridge, england, which in 1991 provided the inspiration for the world’s first webcam.
to save people working in the building the disappointment of finding the coffee machine empty, after making the trip to the room, a camera was set up, providing a live picture of the coffee pot to all desktop computers on the office network. after the camera was connected to the internet, a few years later, the coffee pot gained international notoriety as a feature of the fledging world wide web, until it was retired in 2001.
