Once again....it was in the last box.

...the last piece of the backup my laptop puzzle, was to find the tapes. And, eventually I did find them in the last box.... |-|

Though it wasn't too bad, since I found other stuff along the way that I either put into use or set aside knowing that I would get to it next.

However, it did distract me from a couple of bigger projects that I just keep putting off, but really ought stop.

To further the distraction.....while on the quest, I was also defragging my laptop and updating some packages on it...I decided to do a net survey.

Big mistake.....I saw some other APs near my channel....so I decided that I'd move into a more open spot....though with my 3 AP WDS bridge network...there's probably an order I'm supposed to change things in, but I didn't it wrong. The problem is there are computers wired on two ends, but one end doesn't have a computer wired there.

There's also issues like the DHCP/DNS servers live on one of the ends. But, it is the computer-less end that has my main Internet gateway, etc.

I changed that one first....and I almost couldn't get the network back up again. While I was working on getting things working again, I ran the site survey function on my AP. It told me quite a different story on what systems were in my area. Namely, the so called open spot was actually more congested than where I was....

So, I ended up moving back....

I think I'm still looking to HomePlug as the solution to my network, though now I'm thinking I want to look at HomePlug to solve my surround sound problem. I think I could also use some speaker stands (again).

Hmmm.... :?

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
