My internet has decided to crap out. After calling my cable provider, gone through a set of useless steps, they had me plug my laptop directly into the modem. Still nothing. They say they're going to do something, put me on hold, and half an hour later I give up and hang up. Shortly after, laptop decides to recognize the modem. But only when directly plugged in. No wireless. Call back cable company but it's a netgear router so i have to call netgear to reset that.

So i've got internet when I'm at my desk, which means I can check my email and what not, but it's a bit on the inconvenient side of things.

Also? as if I haven't had enough expenses this month, something i've put off since I've moved decided it can't be put off anymore. My computer chair didn't survive the move, but I have an old wooden chair that has been sufficient for the time being. One of the legs likes to pop out, and it's not super comfortable but I'm not at the desk as much so it's been fine. Until it decided to try to kill me this evening.

In more upbeat news, I had a great time visiting family and friends this past weekend.

My own internet tried to stop working today. Took a while before it finally decided it was okay to run again. I still haven't figured out how to get it to work with a wireless router... damn DSL company has proprietary software and a song and a dance needed to get wireless working on it. I should have gone through Verizon.

I hope your internet woes get fixed soon. And that you find a better chair. ^^;; Have you tried yard sales?
