So.... From what I can tell I now have a stable net connection. I couldn't even get a stable enough connection long enough to say this via blog. :-/
Hence the lack of activity since June....
I was suffering this issue when I got to part 3 of the design thing and I'll finish that next week. I'm just relaxing and enjoying stability right now, watching in case it fails again.
I bought a new phone to get part around this also, which allowed limited editing (sadly). So in the last few days I was able to leave short messages. I was restricted to comments only though and section edits on pages.
