Is this progress?

I'm sitting in the AirVenture Today office... with no internet connection.

This building sits unused for 50 weeks of the year, then every July the Brigadoon-thing happens. A bunch of tech is installed, we all arrive from the four corners, plug in our laptops, and a daily newspaper happens. It's common for there to be glitches each year as new (and old) pieces of the installation are debugged.

This year we have a new way of connecting to the internet. Actually, I'm told that it's a newer version of an older system. In any event, it involves a radio connection, via a dish on the roof, that connects with a dish on some other roof, and voila, we have internet. Except not so much yet.

I'm confident that it will all be worked out. The fact that you're reading this means that it did. See, no worries.
