couple

(no subject)

Blah, pretty interesting evening. Not too bad, not to exciting. Radio shack phone people are idiots. So is verizon. Their own CSRs didn't know about a service they supposedly offer according to their website.
Oh well. I'll take my business elsewhere.

Anyway, today we had excellent propogation of 802.11b waves today. Picked up APs I've never seen before, quite well even. That reminds me I've gotta upgrade the firmware on B's card next time I'm there. I think it improves range slightly.

Apologies to ladymace and shannonpagels for waking them up. People asleep at 3:30am? Who would have thought?! ;-) My bad. :-(

Anyway, I'm exhausted, and I can't find my fuzzy again. I need to get that thing surgically attached to me or something. :-(

update: I found my fuzzy. w00t!

ugh

It's pretty bad when you can throw me a linux box and a cisco and I can make you a secure server with an internet connection in under an hour, but you give me a microwave and I spend 3 minutes figuring out how to use the damn thing.

I wish I were kidding.

I can grok the command line like it's nobody's business, but man, you throw something with beepy buttons and I'm all like "huh?". I manage to pop popcorn everyday at work because it has a button that pops the popcorn for me. I try to warm up a burrito at home, and it's like rocket science.

I think my brain has been fried by technology. Today I was discussing how to multihome a laptop with it's own ASN and /24 using a Verizon CDMA modem and a Sprint CDMA modem for your redundant connections, and using zebra to establish bgp sessions.

I'm just a sick, sick bastard, that's all there is to it.
