cable update

After going off on the cable pukes, I did get the cable modem service provisioned. Apparently the salespuke never noted the HSI order so I had to inform the sales pukes what is involved in provisioning service...which, for cable modem, is not much. I also managed, that night, to upgrade the Orinoco RG-1000 AP to the AP-500 code, set it up on the wireless network, get FTP working on a machine and start to work on getting some remote control software running. Oh, and installed a webcam I can view via the not-yet-working remote software. I am pretty sure the remote software will be working tonight. I could actually test it via RAS from work since, well, from work is where I want to use it. Pretty damned productive. I may set up dynamic DNS but I am not sure if I will.

That was my evening other than a visit to IHOP and some reading (not the reading I should be doing). I had the day off for undisclosed reasons (no, I did not forget my safe word) and no one from work appeared to be doing anyting exciting...or at least they never informed me. Typical.

So, if I can keep up this pace of concentration, I may get through the damned router reading I need to do. What a relaxing Labor Day. Psh!
