I replaced my D-Link wireless router with a cheap-o Belkin $40 wireless router from Wal-Mart. Guess what happened - all my wireless problems are now fixed. The connection is solid and stable just like it was before, so I'm happy about that.
I'm also kind of disappointed because I had a premium D-Link "gaming" router that cost me $200 when I originally bought it. For the longest time it worked perfectly, then for no apparent reason it just started flaking out.
I guess the lesson learned here is that it really doesn't matter what kind of router you get as long as it works the way you want it to.
I finally bought The Princess Bride on DVD; something I've been meaning to do for a long time. Of course, I watched the movie first, then watched it again with the director's audio commentary on.

As a screenplay writer, that was a nice bonus.
One other note: This film was a low budget motion picture. I had always thought it was high budget.
Why is guitar intonation so important? Guitar intonation can be the deciding factor not only when buying a guitar from the guitar store, but also be the thing that makes you fall in or out of love with a guitar you already own.

That's a drum machine. I bought it for two reasons. First, my old Ensoniq SQ-1 Plus workstation synthesizer, which is over 20 years old, is […]
900GB Geocities torrent - but wish there was an HTML-only "lite" version ArchiveTeam has decided to do something pretty ballsy: They're releasing a 900GB torrent of all the old Geocities files. Yes, that's right, 900GB. As in 900 gigabytes of data. I have absolutely no idea how long it would take to seed that, much less download it. Will people download it? I won't (I don't have […]
