Husband rules! We're broadband enabled!

This is not so simple as you might think. We have two computers, formerly networked on a LAN. But the old cable network was slowing our computers down, so we decided to go wireless and convert to broadband at the same time.

I knew it wasn't going to be simple when the guy at the shop said, "do you have an old house?" "Yes." "Thick stone walls?" "Um, yes."


This of course meant we had to proceed with more-expensive-than-usual hardware, but it's done the job.

We keep clicking on things and going, "oooooooh".

Continuing the for every sun a little rain must drown us all theme, I'm home sick with some sort of stomach bug. If you read the systems report in my brain right now, there would be a big red flashing sign saying, "Sense of Humour Failure Imminent."

ROTFL!!!! Will have to show that to my girls the next time they jump on my desk *g*.

Have fun with the broadband :-) I remember doing the oohh/aaah thing last June when we first upgraded. Of course, when we first get to our new home, we'll be back on dial-up for a while :-/

I've been sitting here going through these making these sort of high-pitched whimpering/giggling noises.

Ah, yes, the cat herders! My favorite! I'm glad Kate kept the link handy. I had it buried in my inbox. It's got to make you feel better, Anna.

Congrats on the broadband -- and three cheers for Husband. Take care.

I love kitties. They make me smile. I think the sound of a cat purring is my favorite sound on the planet :)
