It’s been a hectic week, and that left very little time for updates.
I got my new laptop Tuesday, and have been adjusting ever since.
We got the tax refund today, and can pay off the worst of our debts as well as pick up a luxury item or two – Like a new wireless hub for the house. 802.11B with builtin firewall and print server. It even includes a serial port for a dialup fallback connection. Now the existing firewall can be turned into just a fat-ass NFS & SMB server. And if ray decides to push the power button on the server, it won’t kill the open IP connections.
Of course, all this good has to be tempered with some bad. Ray was a PAIN tonight. I mean, a big one. but tomorrow is another day, so we’ll see if he’s better after he sleeps.
