Which brings me to another topic. Had the PC just lost power and decided to lay dormant in an effort to annoy the hell out of me, I wonder if any broadband router companies (Netgear, Linksys, etc) offer WoL in their products. That way, I could give the thing a good nudge to wake it up. I think this would be a cool feature...far better then the arbitrary ping offered in most 'diagnostic' menus of such routers.
Since work is blocking one port I like to use for remote access, I may put Logmein on my laptop. I am not a fan of doing it but I suppose it makes for a second way in to home from work. So far, I like the service. The automated clipboard sharing is cool and the full screen mode is great. And it is free...can't beat that!
This weekend is the horrid migration. I expect utter and complete 9th layer of hell 'forced to chew on broken auto safety glass while my face is forced into a wood chipper' pain from the experience. They wanted it, I suspect a ton of shit will break. Today, DNS broke. For no reason. I didn't care because that machine won't be a DNS server in 2 days and there was a backup anyway. Just a sign of things yet to happen.
