Ok... so, Verizon still seems to think my DSL will be working by tonight.

Even though I have no dial tone.

On the plus side, they are sending a tech out Saturday morning to try to trace the line to my building, to see if they can figure out what's going on. I hope it's them and not the inside line, because in the latter case I would have to get the landlord involved in figuring it out.

Via [livejournal.com profile] conuly, Girls' autism 'under-diagnosed'.

"Hyperactivity, and interests in technical hobbies have been seen as characteristics of the disorder.

But Christopher Gillberg, of the National Centre of Autism Studies, said girls were often passive and collected information on people, not things."

"collected information on people, not things." A-yup. My fascination, once I was in school and saw the need, was with people, and social interaction and trying to understand why the hell people did the things often very strange things they did. My fascination is with minds and social interaction and such, not machines.

I'm an awful lot less likely to be watching from the outside now, although sometimes I still do. Almost certainly due to the large number of people I know now whose behavior makes more sense to me, so is less likely to cause me to be distant while trying to figure things out. Instead, my investigations into friends' minds are part of my interaction with them.

Heh.
