Does anyone have any exp with Dell Computer wireless pcmcia network cards? My dad's new laptop and wireless is connecting... and I have the code key in there properly... but it wont actually network... no browser and no ftp... ?? (his wireless router is a d-link and it's connecting fine with a wireless pci card in a pc... although the pci card is a d-link as well...)

my boss is way happy today...
why?
because he heard me whispering 'fuck'.
The whispering part is what really turned his crank. :D

hahaha...

Have a great day guys...
I know for absolutely certain that I'm gonna. :D
It's a great day to be... ...among friends.

Ok... CommVault guy hates me now...
I was supposed to meet him at 'Bucks for a coffee at 10:00
I got there a few minutes after 10:00 and realized... I have no idea what he looks like... let alone (sad I know...) his name.
So I actually started saying "hi... so listen... blah blah blah" to every guy in the place. hahahaha...
It's an "attached starbucks" in a Chapters (think Barns n' Nobel)...
I never found the dude...
But I did go to the kids book section and bought two new "I SPY" big books.
The we all (Suz, the boys and I) sit on the big bed searching those books at night before bed, and new books are going to be "squeel producing" when I whip them out. :D weeee... :) :)

Survivor IX Update!!!


Survivor IX : Vanuatu


Snoop Da! in da house!




Wherein... the lamest Survivor evva! further tortures us by not showing Eliza getting beaten up by pigmies. Instead, some dude from South Central doffs a grass skirt and shows the bunny team how to chew sticks. It’s a day of puzzles and an overwhelming desire to watch Rory burst into flames. Heck, even Jeff’s trying to tell them what complete idiots they are being...

M: Good evening, Magma communications, residential support. How can I help you?
Corto: Yeah, you called to say my open ticket had an update. My username is corto.
M: one moment sir...
tick tick tick...
M: Yes... residential accounts have a 1 gig per month bandwidth limitation on the magma servers...
C: And...
M: you are exceeding that...
C: No I'm not.
M: Yes you are.
C: You're wrong. Check again.
tick tick tick tick...
M: well there's something strange here...
C: Yes there is. I'm looking at the magma "user stats page" and it says I have used 93 megs so far this month on my upstream transfer.
My domain, hosted on the server in my basements references 112 static graphic images stored on your server and they are all exceptionally small jpg and gif files. My account bandwidth is 4 gigs per month and I have, over the last 24 months, never exceeded that. And the 1 gig per month off your server??? How do you figure 93 megs is the same as 1000 megs?
M: I'm not certain sir... Can you hold.
C: Sure.
tick tick tick...
M: Well there's definately something wrong sir...
C: absolutely. I called you two days ago about this.  I called you again yesterday. Both days you said you would resolve the issue. Today I had to call you again and you resolved it today by saying it's my fault.  Now it's almost 8:00 at night, on the eve of a long weekend and my space on your host is toast. 
C: WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?
M: well I'm going to check with the UNIX team and see what they say...
C: And you will call me back on this?
M: Yes...
C: When?
M: As soon as I can...
C: Dude... I pay for a static address and I have been a steady customer since you guys got the ball rolling.  I'm just say'en... You have competition in this city. I want that call soon!
M: Yes sir...
C: Have a nice night ... I'll wait for your call.
M: Yes sir... goodbye sir...
C: night...

Geezus fuck.  All the little static graphics on my web site (http://www.corto.ca/corto) are hosted on my service providers web site because they load so much faster from there... grrrrrrr!
