Meatworld Interruptions

Hey Folks! As the title suggests, today was full of interruptions, resulting in a lower productivity. The good news, however, is that I think my plate is mostly clear again to resume gamedev now!

I won't bore you with the details, but most of the stuff involved updating accounts, paying bills, and signing docs. Stuff we had put on hold starting the day we packed up our stuff until now, when we're mostly operational again.

However, there was one interruption worth noting: a new network card!

Yes, I believe I may have my internet back. It's wireless now. It cost a pretty penny for both the router and adapter upgrades. And it took a heckuva lot of messing around to get right (unit positioning, rewiring, mobo slot-swapping). However, early tests show down/up speeds faster than the hardwired setup in the old house, partially thanks to a new router.

I won't be live-streaming HD footage of my gamedev, nor will I be winning any FPS tournaments. But I can at least upload builds painlessly and get answers on the internet without waiting for text pages to load :)

Feels good to stretch my (internet) legs again!

Yay, internet! That which resides eerily near microwave radiation! Really though, I would not recommend sticking one of those transmitters near your crotch, you may become sterile! Although, they are quite far apart, so who knows... I guess this can all be chalked up to: Yay internet, do whatever.

Rar! Rar rar rar! Thanks for reading :)

I guess I have to hope that there is enough interference between the antenna and my crotch to keep me safe :)
