As I type this, I'm blogging from my backyard.
My parents got themselves a Dell laptop with a wireless networking card in it, and while the signal is a bit weak from the backyard, it's sufficient for this. It's taken me a while to get it set up, but it's working fine now.
And now my parents can finally stop using my computer. They've been without a functioning unit for a few weeks now, and it's been annoying in the extreme sharing a system with them.
Also, my dad has been really funny while waiting for this thing to arrive. He's like a kid who sent away for a decoder ring - "Ooh ooh! Is it here yet?"
Anyway, now I can blog and get sunlight at the same time. Excellent!
