The 30th Skeptic’s Circle is now available for your perusal. The Circle is a regular run-down of interesting skeptical blog posts from around the Cyberweb, including a couple from yours truly.
That should keep you busy today as I shirk today’s blogging responsibility due to my inability to connect various thoughts together in coherent patterns. I had a late night, but it’s not what you think! I was up all night a.) upgrading Iggy the Powerbook to OS X Tiger (Rowr!) and then b.) setting up a brand-spanking new DSL connection. There were a number of minor problems (beginning with Amazon telling me that my order was delayed indefinitely and sending me across town to the Apple store to buy the OS after work, and then the T breaking down for 20 minutes, and then dealing with a half-broken phone line outlet and . . . okay, I’m cranky), but I managed to get the basics installed.
The only problem that remains is figuring out how to switch from using the ethernet cable to going wireless when Verizon only provides instructions for doing that on a PC. Thanks a ton, Verizon. Those of you with ideas or experience doing such a thing, please comment here or e-mail me at [email protected]. I have the Westell Versalink modem and my laptop can handle wireless, but I can’t figure out how to make the two shake hands and say “howdy,” let alone get married and make sweet, sweet wireless love to one another and produce a multitude of uploading/downloading network babies.
What did that even mean? I told you it was a late night.
Today’s blog image comes from the first return of a Google image search for “wireless hate.”
Today’s Quaker Instant Strawberry Oatmeal “Brain Teaser” is: “Which mammal has four knees and is the only mammal that can’t jump? A: The Elephant!” Note: this is not, in fact, a brainteaser, and for that matter it may not even be true but I can’t be bothered to look into it right now.
