Day 138: R&R

I spent most of the day looking for inspiration, driving, relaxing, talking, stuff like that. It’s nice not to have a lot of shit to do, and to be able to relax.

Day 137: Lunch Meet

I had another future-related discussion over lunch today, and the future is looking alright. I might be able to take control of my future and make some kind of an impact in the next few years.

Day 136: Root

I’ve been meaning to do this for ages, and today I took the plunge. I rooted my phone and installed the latest version of the Android OS on my old G1. I had to jump through oldschool DOS-esque consoles and lots of hoops, and I loved it. The draconian process reminded me of the old days, back when computers were exclusively for nerds. And now, I’ve got the latest and greatest system on my phone.

Day 135: Letting Go

The latest change for me this year has been learning to let go. Let go of my past failures and regrets. Let go of the people who don’t really matter in the scheme of things. Let go of any anxieties or worries. Everything is getting better now, as I’ve got less weighing me down.

Day 133: Ping...

And suddenly, my connection is working again. Sort of. At least, it’s fast enough. Maybe not 100% perfect, but close. For now, anyway. I’m hoping things stay this way. Time to toss out the router-related trash on the couch.

Day 132: Carpool

My brother has to carpool to work with my this week because his license is expired and getting through the bureaucratic process of renewing an expired license takes more than a couple days.

Day 131: This Webpage is Not Available

More than a week, and "This webpage is not available" is still my greeting when I try to use the internet most of the time. It’s difficult to get much of anything done, so tied to the internet is my work.

Day 130: New Router (Didn’t Work)

Day 130: New Router (Didn't Work)

Last night, I bought a new (and pricey) wireless router mostly to prove a point: that my ISP was completely wrong and my wireless router had nothing to do with my connectivity issues. After another hour, I finally got them to admit something was wrong with the line, and they promised to send a service tech to inspect. This has been a disaster, and completely ruined the once high regard I had for my ISP.

Day 129: Internet Access

It’s been about a week now that I’ve had little or no internet connectivity at home, and I’ve spent every few evenings on the phone with my ISP trying to get this resolved. I’m beginning to lose my patience. And I’m away from the house (and therefore on the road) more, since without internet access, there’s almost no reason to be home.

Day 128: The Modem or the Router

Day 128: The Modem or the Router

This has been the question all week. The cable modem or the wireless router? Something has been preventing me from having internet access at home all week, and my ISP swears it’s nothing on their end, so I’m working down the line from my end to theirs. Tonight, I’m buying a new wireless router to see if that link in the chain is alright. I’m close to being fed up with this.
