I have net access again.  Have pulled updates and the build has been
running for about ten hours and has prceded past the step "expat
deliver", so I have high hopes.

The build of git on Windows proceeded for about three hours before
failing for missing `propmt`.  Until my next connectivity problem, I
no longer care.

I am not sure why the ftp port is a security exposure, but that
restriction cut me off from documents I have stored "out there".
Oh-oh, that reminds me of more stuff that I want to catch up on.

Indeed.  But even messages mailed from my subscribed address are
sometimes held for moderation.  Oh, well ...

Sorry for the noise, but restoration of connectivity had been promised
"soon" for most of the time I was disconnected.

Maybe I will be able to get a bug report filed to make life even a bit
busier <grin />.
