I've managed to shoot myself in the foot

through the back of my head! It all began when I realized that many of my posts were going into the wrong categories in spite of my correctly checking the checkboxes at the time of posting. Lawrence did a great job of telling me what to do to fix that problem. It took a long time, but it worked.

Then, I had 4 categories where the name next to the checkbox didn't agree with the folder name in the www - categories folders. So here's a description of what I did! I've got a hunch (and a hope, actually) that Lawrence will get to go to the spicy noodles dinner this evening, so I may be hosed until whenever. In fact, I may have done irreparable harm.

If you see a way out of this mess, I'd appreciate any advice!

IP Packets

Will phone calls get carried on cable or will television get carried on phone connectivity. Most of this relates to the 'first mile' problem.
