As Dead A Day As I Can Recall

I've actually seen a draft version of this mini, and it's awesome. I strongly suggest David and Maggie eBay the leftovers for some quick cash.

In retrospect, my internet at home being nonfunctional (smokin’ hot signal, no DNS) and the prospect of sitting on the line with a first-level “support” “technician” to go through multiple reboots only to determine that the problem isn’t on my end should have been a tip-off.
