Deck Blogging!!!

By Brian | March 19, 2006 | Share on Facebook

Well, what a day this has been! I’ll post a much longer (rant-filled) essay on all the technology woes I went through today, but here’s the long and the short of it: I’ve got the wireless network setup the way I want it now (full, or near full signal everywhere in the house *AND* on the deck in the backyard. I even walked to the woods in the back, and the signal was still fair. I’m typing this right now from my deck (according to Yahoo, it’s 34 degrees), just to prove that I can. Really, it’s been that kind of day.

For the geeks (but, as I say, much more later): I bought a Linksys Range Extender to go with my Linksys Wireless Router. I also caved in and bought the Video iPod. Not only that, but our color inkjet printer up & died on us this week, so I had to buy another one of those. It’s been a very expensive & frustrating day, but now that it’s done & everything’s working, I’m very psyched.

OK, I gotta go. My wife is looking at me through the dining room window & pointing out to me just how cold it is…

Much more tomorrow…

    So, what part of “you would be happier beating yourself with a large brick” did I unclearly communicate?
