Finally, Reliable Internetz!

So like I said before, Vinz chewed through my network cable pretty much immediately after getting here. I didn’t want to get another one because I figured he’d chew through that one too. So I went the wireless route.

A couple days ago, my roommate gave me a wireless network card he had laying around. Popped it in, used my ninja skills to secure a driver for it (you know your awesome when you can get drivers when you have no internet haha), and set it up. All was fine and dandy until I turned winamp on. Then my computer started freezing. Sucky. Then the next day, it started randomly rebooting itself. More sucky. Poor Bob.

So today I went down to Office Depot and picked up the cheapest USB wireless adapter I could find. Brought it home, plugged it in.. found every wireless network in range except for mine haha. Nice. So 20 minutes later after moving the adapter about 100 times, it finally located my network and took my key and I have happily been connected with an excellent 54 mbps connection since.

And I’ve been running winamp with no crashes! Bob and I are happy now.

I Have Returned!

Vinz ate my network cable like, 2 weeks ago and I just now got my internet fixed.

Never fear, hilarity shall soon ensue!!

Vinz is Here!!


So Friday after work I began my 8 hour epic journey to Chico to pick Vinz up. The drive down was mostly uneventful and really damn long. I got there at like, 1:30 in the morning and I was exhausted after working all day and not sleeping the day before. Good times.

Vinz was so excited to see me! :D It was awesome, I missed my doggy. Friend Tom and my mom brought him halfway for me. Then the next day we went to breakfast and Vinz and I came home. The drive back was… mostly uneventful, and even longer cause I had to keep stopping trying to get Vinz to poop. He never did, bugger.

Oh well, the eventful part was when CHP pulled me over 20 miles from the border. They clocked me going 90 hahahaha. Oops. But then Vinz was being all buddy-buddy with the cop (who was quite confused when he saw my CA license with an address in Glendale, my registration with an address in Burbank, and my Oregon car insurance lmao) and so, the cop was like “tell you what, how about if I give you a warning on the speed, and a fix-it ticket because I can’t figure out where you actually live, so the DMV probably has no idea either.” and I was like “… that sounds good to me, I’ll let the DMV know I’m in Portland now, thanks :D” and Vinz was like, “hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi !!” and I was like “no dude, we are being pulled over, this is not exciting.”

That is all.
