Slacker

Finished the quarter out yesterday. We’ll see how it looks, but at 5p, I pretty much knew it was over for me.

Came home, had a beer and installed the replacement WRT54G I picked up at lunch. This one seems a bit more stable, but still drops everyone if the 2.4GhZ phone is in the same room as the Router. OK, so I need an old-style wired phone for that room.

Also picked up an Open-box 80-hour DirecTivo. Well, now I know why twas there – tuner A is dead. Dead, dead, dead. So I have to return that. *sigh* I’m half tempted to crack it open and see if I can salvage the power supply, if it hadn’t come with a new “activate in 90 days or else” card. Bastards.

Played some Ratchet & Clank with Ray, then some WoW. Work up today and made a 5-egg omelet with cheese for Renee and Myself with meatless sausage links on the side. And now or a shower, and a grocery run.

Then I can play for a while.

Isn’t my life exciting? *NOT*

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    I cannot believe the DirecTivo box didn’t work. That sucks. Did they let you plug it up at the store? I wasn’t paying attention because I was so engrossed in the HDTV Discovery Channel! drool

    Anyway, I am sorry to hear that. If you would like to return it on Monday, I will be happy to ride along.

    I have my GLORIOUS concall at 11:30, so with any luck I’ll be able to go to lunch before 1 today.

    Argh.

    But the TiVo is in the trunk, ready to go. If not today, Wednesday. But I expect it’ll be today.
