Damn Cables

GRR. Couldn’t get on the net last night because of LAN issues. So we figured out that it was the cable that was playing up. So I went and spent NZ$28 on 2x 10m premade green CAT5e cables and a joiner. I get home, turn on my computer so I can see when the NIC lights up and what do I see… THE EXISTING CABLE IS LIGHTING UP THE BOX. So I’m majorly pissed off at this situation. But I guess we can still use them for the Xbox – green will work well… Bring on Xbox live in New Zealand! Q4 apparently!

Back online!

Yay! We’re back online and it’s kicking ass! w00t ๐Ÿ™‚ Sweet as ๐Ÿ™‚ Cheers to Benny from TelstraClear who came and installed it all ๐Ÿ™‚

Moving house

I’m moving to Grant Rd in Thorndon. I’m still in Wellington, but the rent has been put up at the old place and we gave our two weeks notice two weeks ago. So out we go. Probably won’t be online till Tuesday or Wednesday when our cable gets connected. Oh, we might even have a webcam in the lounge ๐Ÿ˜€

Hug your computer

I hugged my computer today. It’s been almost a year without a computer in my house that I could call my own. My computer has returned home from a 10 month stint at work, and it’s good to have it home. Life just keeps getting better ๐Ÿ™‚ Maybe I’ll do some coding like I’ve been meaning to since about November 2001…. ๐Ÿ™‚
