Four-eyes

Last night, I had a strange dream.. all I can remember was that therewas another one of me walking around all the places where I have abit of a 'home' feel (my office, my car, and my apartment), telling methat it's all really messy and making me feel bad. Oddly though,each place was messier than it actually is. My car, apart from thetrunk, is pretty clean -- several months of not having anyone leaving stuffin it, and my cleaning it a bit every time I use it, has left the interiornearly empty. Hell, even the trunk is a lot emptier than it once was.Yeah, my office is pretty messy, and my apartment, while not as messy as inthe dream, could use a good cleaning (with some scrubbing). Still, it's notthat bad, and I wonder where that dream came from....

Right now, at work, I'm configuring the 4 new laptops, and I have them all downin the lab, plugged in together. It's an amusing sight, especially with themall next to my big laptop on which I type now. It looks like a mother gooseand her little goslings.

Last night, I had insomnia REALLY badly, and went to bed around 4am. On theupside, I got some good stuff done for work, and started on some of thehomework.. Still, although I don't feel it now, I'm certain I'll be feeling thelack of sleep after I eat lunch. Hmm.. and I also dimly remember having aconversation with someone, I'm not entirely certain whom, and talking aboutpolitics.. that must've been near the end of my awakedness.. If it wasn't adream, I wonder who the foo it was, if I said anything offensive, and whatexactly I did say. Oh well.

Oh, yes, before it got too late, I went through the trouble to bring mynetwork back up, sans kryten, using my wireless AP as the NAT box. Itreally was pretty simple, although I had to make several phone callsto verizon to get my username, and have them reset my password (they assignedsome ungodly random username like vzwhreteg to me, with a similarly randompassword, and although my OpenBSD box knew it, I didn't). All is good,and amusingly, while my neighborhood has plenty of 802.11b networks, someopen, some not, and all kind of flakey through the walls of my apartment,I appear to be the only 802.11g-capable network, at least within earshotof my apartment. Actually, my laptop has never seen an 802.11g network apartfrom mine yet. I wonder how long it'll take to catch on.. you'd think with thebackwards compatability, people would be quicker to upgrade...

I'm thinking about getting a Linksys WSB24, which is a 2.4Ghz signal booster.It should be compatible with my WRT54G, and should make the signal even stronger,increasing both range and reliability. Hmm.
