yay for networks

Blythe brought her laptop over to my place to do some homework while enjoying the warmth of my room, the smell of my carpet cleaner, my great company, and our high speed internet access. (actually --- I think it was the latter she was really after)

I thought it'd be as easy as her plugging into my switch, enabling DHCP, and it'd work, but we actually had to go through quite a hassle... turns out we were plugging a cross over cable into my switch. duh. plugged in a normal cable and it all worked fine. heh. :-)

update: haha ... i put vnc on her computer, so now I can use x2vnc over 3 monitors.... :-) we're installing linux on her desktop computer this weekend, so she'll need vnc eventually anyway, so it's not like i'm entirely devious. (well ... actually I am. but revjim and I can't talk about that)
