Our net at home is in bad shape. The cable guy has to come back next week to drill a hole in our wall and install a whole new outlet by the computer. Bad cable line.
Doesn’t really impact me too much directly, though. My computer’s off the net for a while… can’t afford a 2nd IP, haven’t got the parts to put together a *nix box to act as a gateway, can’t afford a router. If anyone’s got ancient PC parts lying around that they need to be rid of, I’ll take donations.
I’m still feeling highly insignificant and irrelevant this week. Considered arranging a gathering at my new place sometime around my birthday, but I have neither the energy nor the funds to offer people kool-aid, let alone the snack type things normally offered at such gatherings. So no go. Also can’t go anywhere that requires transit money.
