Not loving the Cathy Crosby version in today’s Wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wonder_Woman_(TV_series). However, I note that DC has been publishing a digital-only “Wonder Woman ’77” comic based on the TV show. It looks delightfully campy.
For those of you following my adventures and woes of Internet connectivity, I thought I’d offer an update. CenturyLink (which my Mac wants to autocorrect to “centurkink,” so make of that what you will) sent another tech out. My bonded-pair DSL service was crap, because line 2 kept dropping all the time. So I went …

Service at my house is a little sketchy, but that’s partially because my house is a virtual Faraday cage. Getting any kind of signal …
If you followed my mid-2015 Internet travails, then you know that CenturyLink, like most telcos, is barely competent to be in business. The old Scott Adams joke about cable companies employing engineers to couldn’t cut it at the phone company might still be true, but damn, CenturyLink isn’t exactly raising the bar. A huge part …
Here in Las Vegas, Cox has gotten into a fight with Nexstar, owners of our local CBS Affiliate, KLAS. It’s the usual content-provider-versus-carrier argument: KLAS wants more money, Cox doesn’t want to pay it. KLAS says they’re just asking for the same amount paid by Dish, DirecTV, and CenturyLink.
