I am slowly catching up. I have been back in the mountains for a few days, Iâ€™m alive and quickly readjusting to not having fire ants, eastern diamond backs, airliner sized mosquitoes, coral snakes, cottonmouths and alligators running around. I donâ€™t miss the heat definitely and donâ€™t miss the humidity.
Butâ€¦ if I could miss work again, Iâ€™d go again in a heart beat, oh well.
I did some work on my network this afternoon, Iâ€™m almost 100% switched over to the new internet connection. Just the hznet.us server left on the old connection and itâ€™s being load balanced. Itâ€™ll be another couple of weeks before I commit to the new connection, but so far, all is well.
Iâ€™ve been annoyed by my wireless router, couldnâ€™t find a spot in the house that would give solid signal everywhere in the house. The only place that would was in our hallway between bedrooms and living room/kitchen. Iâ€™ve played with directional antennas and just about every antenna I could make/buy/steal. So, today, I finally built a shelf in the hall and put the WRT54G wireless box up there. Two decorative looking antennas with it, actually looks nice. Also I hacked of the power cable and ran the power through the unused wires of my Cat5e cable so I donâ€™t have to run a black wire up the wall, just one white one matching the paint. Plus, no easy outlet in the hall. I might post pictures later, if I get bored and have nothing to post.
