The gods of technology laugh at my pain! [Oct. 30th, 2005|12:54 am]

So earlier I spent four hours fighting invisible network gnomes and buying stuff I didn't need and talking to the ISP and not fixing it, and also hurting my knee. Now I'm out $70 and I walk funny and I didn't even [PUNCHLINE].

I came home around midnight to discover that the network came up on its own at 8 pm. WTF.

But now I have 15%-20% packet loss. So I opened another ticket with the ISP, and I'm not buying a new DSL modem until they tell me what REALLY happened.

I'm a professional and this one has me running in tight little circles. What happens to everyone else? GAAAH!

Linksys is the answer to network prayers.

There are so many awesome things and diagnostic tools available for the open sourced boxes.
