...don't play well together, it seems. I have an old bluetooth headset and, because of the amount of time I have been spending at home talking on my pay-as-you-go phone, I realized it'd be worthwhile to switch to a service like Skype for these calls rather than pay out the nose. But, apparently, Windows Vista just doesn't let you use bluetooth headsets at all. Ever.

My Internet, apparently, died on Friday afternoon. I was out quite late, so I didn't know. I was busy all day Saturday. So, last night, I drank some whiskey, pretended I was my roommate, and called tech support. We got to the point rather quickly: it seemed there was a problem with the line and they would send a tech out to check the external stuff. When I got up this morning, the Internet was working again, but I didn't have time to actually set it up again and check the electrical mail from an entire weekend of stuff. Nothing too important.
