~ wireless router... all secure... I think...
~ old linksys... fully deployed with that Apple G4 (ps. thanks for the info back there)
~ linksys telephone support is surprisingly good!
~ Alias sucked tonight... maybe... maybe if they had put a dozen bullets in Lauren it would have improved... but it felt like, as z commented, they didn't have enough material for an epi so they kept replaying parts ... like we would be ok with this.??!!! grrrrr

~ my mother handed my brother and I bundles again... she's kept stuff... you know... an everthing in the universe level of stuff... She did this last year with pictures from life and childhood...
This time it was a bundle of papers. I love it when we get stuff like this.

We had the plane fixed in about 2 hours and we took off again.
Ok, I dunno about you... but now... with Geo and Edward firmly visualized in my head... I can only imagine how my mom must have sat down at this point in the letter. gah... I want to bust out laughing here...

Ok. I got squat done tonight on projects... but there's always tomorrow.
