I Feel Productive! Oh So Productive!

Remember a couple weeks ago when I wasted a whole day trying to get the wireless router connected? Ta Da! And it's behind the firewall, hooked up the way I wanted to to begin with. This means pilgham can have internet even when MD and I are online which was iffy before. It also means I can make this entry while sitting in my family room watching Monk on Tivo which I couldn't do before.

Also MD and I went to the Post Office this morning and applied for our passports.

And, in order to clear room to open up the server to put the new cards in, I cleared part of my desk. This had the happy side effect that my scanner is almost uncovered so I'll actually be able to use it!


Your desk sounds like my desk... I don't know if that's good or bad. :)

The messier wing I didn't touch so if yours is like mine, where my husband was complaining there was nowhere for his coffee (a lie since I could find room for my tea), it's a bad thing.

I have enough room to put my soft drink or water down next to my monitor and enough room for my hand to reach the mouse. Other than that....

When did all this stuff get on my desk?! ;)

Which episode of Monk are you watching?

And I'm wowed that you finally cleared that desk.

The jury one. They need to write a climax episode that involves people from the whole season; if the whole thing is contained in an hour, it's too easy to guess what was going on (of course, they basically gave the whole thing away half-way through anyway.)

It's a relative thing. But at least the scanner is accessible.

You lie. You cleared enough desk space to put more junk on it and put the scanner on the Kleenex-less Kleenex boxes. Not all of us are fooled by this sort of ploy.

What I don't get is that we have a printer/scanner that has been working for months. We now have two scanners? Is somebody missing one?

That could be. There was the corner of something that was pointed out in a photograph much like the first step of the lost tomb of Akhenaten. More than that I would not venture to say except that it was some time ago.

It's a pain using the brother as a scanner because you have to save to Jeeves and the software for the HP is much nicer.

I am guilty of many things but the Kleenex-less Kleenex boxes are all pilgham's.

Pilgham uses Kleenex boxes with cabbage roses on them? How broad-minded. Not that himself...well, face it, himself uses rolls of toilet paper he filches from the bathroom. Not always our bathroom.

Reading Chapt 58 of FMA, lovely stupid and unlikely angst.

isn't it cool to have a wireless router. :D

It's a router but it isn't actually routing because we have a wired network as well. We are just using it as an access point. THat's what was giving me so much grief two weeks ago.

But yes, it's tres cool. Of course, I am now on my good old desk top with full size keyboard and fancy,pshmancy office chair that's like sitting on a cloud -- but I don't have to be!

It is but now when I pour coffee out of the thermos, the shower runs cold. Damn bluetooth.
