A few weeks ago, while furiously tapping on my keyboard and getting fellow bloggers "riled", which is never my intent but just seems to happen anyway, I suddenly lost my internet connection. After spending an extraordinary amount of time evaluating every possible software issue, I traced the problem to a 4 port Linksys router. The router after 6 years of faithful service is no longer "routing". My better half has the "host" system and my "client" system just piggybacks off her system. Strangely, I have been planning to buy a new router but it just seems that I never have the time. If it's not this it is that. Maybe it is because there are alternative systems available to me like the host computer and the one at work. If these alternatives were not available to me, I would have solved this problem a long time ago. I think there is a lesson in all this. Can't think of what it is, though.
