  • Slow Drive In , Good Meal, New AP & a joke

    Posted on December 3rd, 2007 cwmoore No comments

    The drive in this AM took close to 3 hours due to intermittant icy roads.  I made it about half an hour later than usual.

    The regualr fish oriented meal at Braun’s tonight was good as usual and the waitress was the normal one Andy & I use when he comes to town.  Total cost including tip $8.25.

    I bought a new wireless interconnect device.  It is a DLink DWL-G730AP.  It is a three function device that can act as an Access Point mode, Client mode and Router mode.  I thought it would be pretty cool.  It does work in client mode OK but what a pain in the rear end to configure.  First you have to change TCP/IP from DHCP to a fixed class C IP.  Second you have to configure the Client mode to search for available wireless points and then third you have to go back to DHCP.  It is much more difficult than a wireless card.

    If you read this far then here is a funny – UNDERSTANDING ENGINEERS – TAKE TWO
    To the optimist, the glass is half full.
    To the pessimist, the glass is half empty.
    To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
