Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

Actually, my router rules
No really, it doesn't, but someone has sure made it look that way, and as a result, I am now blogging this post from the comfort of my living room recliner, on my now truly SECURE wireless network, while watching Lost.

Thanks to the never ending, bottomless generosity, and all out friendliness of the Baltimore blogging society, none other than Baltimoremick took time out of his personal schedule and stopped by this evening with laptop and rapid fire commentary in tow, to help this digital damsel in distress. I warned him that I would be praising and embarrassing him thusly for his very good and selfless deeds.

Seriously - in an hour and a half (most of which was consumed by chatter between us), he fixed my router problems (something to do with Verizon's account names and other settings interfering with the router), cleaned up my desktop and toolbar, and generally made my computer life simpler. The fix was not nearly as straightforward as I would have imagined, and I cannot blame the tech on the phone who tried in vain to help me last night. It really required someone with programming chops to log in locally and test everything.

I'll be the first to admit I can competently handle the bare basics of desktop administration. I can clean things up, compress files, clear cache, defrag disk space, reconfig IP settings, set up ISP protocols, ...the basics. But it takes a real network analyst to dig in and reprogram settings at a command level that the general public (or a help line analyst in India) can't find.

So - THANK YOU JJT!!! We spoke about many career and job related issues, and if there is ANYTHING I can do to assist in that regard - you know who to call as a reference /lead. I owe you.

I love you guys.
