Oh, and I Guess That I Just Don't Know

Well, kids. My internet isn't working at home right now, and you know how frustrated I get when things don't work. I came home last night and did all the troubleshooting stuff for my wireless router and everything seems to look like it should work, but then it doesn't.

I think that my router might just be a piece of shit. So, then I figured I could just avoid the middle man and not use my router. All that did was make my computer throw up some stupid note about how my computer wasn't connected or something. Either I didn't hook things up correctly, or there is some program attached to the router that I need to get rid of. Obviously, I have no idea what I'm doing, so if the whole world blows up tonight when I try to mess with things again, you can go ahead and assume that I pulled the wrong plug or reattached a bad wire and caused it.

Anyway, for right now, I'm stuck trying to furtively blog at work again. Ugh. We'll see if I can ask one of my friends who actually has some knowledge about such things and try to get it fixed.

My computer must have known I was going to write another post about boys last night and it was tired of hearing about that shit from me...

Aw, the worst part is no photos. Good luck. I just had bad news about having a computer at home, so I'm feeling for ya...

I'm unhappy that your computer didn't let you write about boys. I like reading about boys.

Oh, I HATE it when my computers decide to get minds of their own.

This is a boneheaded question, but have you tried contacting your internet service provider to see if there was a general outage in your area? Because this sounds like it might be a Comcast or ATT issue (depending on who you use).

It is not your fault. You are good enough, smart enough, and doggone it, your computer likes you.

Churlita,
I thought you'd decided to leave for vaction early.

That explains why there was no post before I fell asleep last night. You'll get it fixed!

Poptart said...

I'm with Susan - I like reading about boys because your blog is my only caontact with them! Damn that computer!

Churlita said...

Nor,

I know. I hope I can get it fixed soon.

Susan,

Mostly i was going to write about how little I understood boys and dating...Again.

Booda Baby,

I know. You know they will all eventually kill us in out sleep.

MRT,

It looks like the cable connection is working. That's why I thought it was the router. I may call them tonight just to make sure.

Rel,

If only I could have...

Fringes,

I hope so. I really need to find an IT guy to date. Does Q have any friends who live in Iowa?

Poptart,

I bet you come into contact with WAY more cute boys than I do on a daily basis.

I hope your Internet connection gets fixed. Remember, turn it off and turn it back on. If that doesn't work, grab a hammer.

I agree with remiman: this is a sign to just up and leave for vacay.

and magically, while you're gone, little fairies with tiny soldering guns will come in and fix the router.

Mr Atrocity said...

What no boys AND no computer? That sucks. Hope the magical interwebs will be up and running for you soon and we can get all the salacious details.

Nerd moment: try to keep your 'net router if you can, they offer much more security than just plugging directly into the 'net.

dmarks said...

I have to unplug and plug back in my router a whole lot. Whatever happened to the idea of the power button?

minijonb said...

When the Intarwebz stop working, that my sign that maybe I need to get outside and breathe some fresh air for a while... or that the power is off as well, one or the other.

We are all thinking good thoughts and sending them your way. Get Well Soon Churlita's Internet!!!

MrManuel said...

Routers do go out. Just get a new one, they aren't too expensive.

I don't like trying to write posts from work either. I always feel like I am doing something wrong.
