    That's probably what I miss the most, and why I haven't been around lately. :(

    My mom is thinking of switching isp's

    I did mean 32kb :P But they managed to get it sorted out with customer support. I had no idea that unplugging the modem, and then reversing the phone line cable, would have any effect whatsoever, but that's what customer support told them to do. Either way, their connection looks much better now.

    My mom is thinking of switching isp's

    There's a ps3 and two computers in this house right now. She's had internet service with a wireless provider for awhile now. One computer is connected solely to that modem. Her boyfriend decided to get a directv/qwest dsl combo package. Turns out they have no clear view to set up directv. But...

    My mom is thinking of switching isp's

    Problem is, she would be switching to qwest. Both are hooked up in the house right now, and I ran some speed tests on the qwest dsl connection. I've never seen such low upload speed before. It's 32kb. And logging in to the modem shows that it's upstream rate is only 32kb under modem status. My...

    Still hot, or not?

    I was going to throw in Pia Zadora, but then, I don't want to scour the interwebs trying to figure out what year any Bernadette Peters photo comes from.

    Avatar the movie

    I don't know why everyone's so upset over the story. Look at any movie today. Everything's been done to death. There's nothing new anymore. Although it does get to look prettier and prettier as technology advances. I do, however, still watch movies in the hope I'll see something new. But I've...

    Building a Home Theater PC

    Ok a friend wants me to build a pc for him that he can use in his home theater. Blu-Ray, DVR, hdmi out functionality. I know what I'm going to need to build it, except the case. He wants it to fit into a space on an entertainment center that is only 4.5" high. The space is wide enough and...

    Is it bad

    I usually just use a can of air or to spray it out. If my keyboard ever got any kind of "gunk" on it, though, I guess I'd try to use some wipes of some kind, or a paper towel and water... carefully. :D
