I got my hot new laptop this weekend. I've had my previous computer for about six years -- it was time for it to go, but it has served me well. With my return to the corporate world came a return of a lovely phenomenon which I had all but forgotten -- the end-of-the-year bonus. Laptop, here I come.
My new baby arrived on Friday, but I hadn't gotten to spend any quality time alone with it until last night. I was up until 2 AM with RCN (my internet provider) and Netgear (who makes my router) figuring out why the hell my wireless internet access wasn't working. I have learned that apparently my cordless phone and my router can't play nice in the sandbox together. Guess my phone's days are numbered. Now I have to unplug my phone in order to get online, but here I am. Grrr.
