Survival of the Fittest Internet Connection

At 8am CST this morning, I braved the virtual gladiator ring that was PRO and PAN open registration for one-on-one editor and agent appointments at the national conference in Dallas.

A point-and-click process that should have taken two minutes stretched on for a half hour of hitting the 'refresh' button. Crash a server? Easy!

I did battle, valiantly wielding my trusty T1 connection. Victory is mine! I landed appointments with both an agent and an editor.

"So needless to say I'm odds and ends.
But that's me, stumbling away,
Slowly learning that life is O.K.
Say after me: It's no better to be safe than sorry."
"Take On Me" by A-Ha
