Sorry to have been Missing in Action over the weekend!
I got this idea that I would re-do my home network, put in a wireless component so I could blog from my downstairs workshop in the basement, outside (come the Big Thaw), etc. So Friday I began tearing up my office, rearranging computers and ethernet wiring, hooking up the Airport Extreme base station, etc.
Of course,on Saturday I began trying to figure out why nothing — NOTHING! — was working like it was supposed to. Or, in some cases, working at all. By Sunday I had moved to the "well, it's sorta working" stage. On my 18th rearrangement of the network on Sunday night, everything actually started working like it was supposed to.
Of coure, it stopped working again this morning — not to mention the fact that my Sweetie's computer lost network access, which mandated IMMEDIATE ACTION!
All systems now appear to be go, and I'm back in the proverbial saddle again. I dream of the day when computers are actually electronic toasters...bread in, toast out.
