A banner day thus far — only wasted two hours this morning getting my wireless setup back to something resembling “working.” Last night I tried replacing my old D-Link AP with a new WRT54GL, in the hopes that I could later flash that unit to something from OpenWrt or DD-WRT. Unfortunately there are some significant features missing in the WRT’s Linksys-provided interface. And then to make matters worse, none of my wireless devices could connect to the router.
After several hours of painstakingly trying different options, I finally gave up and boxed the damn thing up again. I put my D-Link back in place but then spent a while getting my cable modem to deal with the change. Eventually everything worked out, but I lost some really precious hours in the meantime.
So when I show up to your meeting only half-prepared, now you’ll know why. Pity me, for I am a sad, sad man.
Oh, and on top of that, we’re having a brokers’ open house today at our home — which means either the constant interruptions of real estate agents nosing around (irksome, but good in the long run), or the mounting frustration of having none of them visit, which looks like what’s actually happening today. Our realtor just showed up, but she’s the only person thus far.
I guess there will be extra baked goodies my wife made, though, as a consolation… So now I can put on a few extra pounds! Yay, just what I needed for summer! What’s that, you say? “Willpower?” Apparently you’ve never had my wife’s cheese wafers. Or brownies. Or muffins… ?
