Broadband!

Woooooo!!!

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."

*sigh*

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 :-/

OMG! BRAWNY MAN!!!!!!

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

Tiramisu!

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 :)
