Where's Waldo? I mean, where's Marcos? I mean, where's Marc?

So, one of the things I take most for granted in my life is Internet access – almost anywhere I go, I can count on having high speed access, or at least some easily reached wi-fi access nearby.

It turns out, however, that this is mostly only true when I am at home in the USA or Canada. As soon as I leave to go overseas, I often find myself in places that are far away from the Internet access I so love (and need!), or worse, in locations where there is simply none.

My current location, in Costa Rica, qualifies as a mix between the two. There is Internet access here, but it can take a bit of time to find. I am currently in the mountains in the middle of the country where 256k Internet access with frequent outages is about as good as it’s going to get.

I have been writing new articles for, I just have not yet had a good chance to upload them. I will change this over the next few weeks and upload the various articles I have written.

Thanks for your patience!
