My office [Jun. 7th, 2000|09:49 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
So, picture this: I'm sitting here at my computers, now setup in the large storage/furnace/water-heater room in our basement, rolling around in my rolley chair on the cold cement ... all the wiring in the house comes together here (cable, network, intercom, vacuum system). The room is totally unfinished... the lighting is 3 bulbs hanging from the ceiling. There's a double matress setup over in the corner propped up on some wood. All my stereo and computer wiring is laying all over the room. I have nothing to do ... no obligations, no homework, no work, no chores, nothing! So what's that mean? It's LiveJournal programming time! Oh hell yes... !! I figure I'll work on the Windows client instead of web stuff... that way I won't feel the pain of the 56k modem as much. When cable is installed Friday night, then I'll go back to web stuff.

Re: WINDOWS

Brad wuves his Windows! He just got 2000! Oh so new and sexy (and stable, you hope, heh). By the way, why're you guys getting cable instead of DSL? availability? price? speed?

Re: WINDOWS

availabilty. we'd switch to DSL in a heartbeat if it were available ... sadly, cable is all that we have (just in the past two weeks... so we're grateful even for that)

Welcome to modemland. Let's play a game! See who can keep the longest sustained 4K/sec download... heh. Sucks to be in modemland. I've never really been out... school's T1 is about worse. Miami is okay. Need DSL, too bad I live in BFE.

Re: I clock 7k/s before

Yeah, but was it sustained? The fastest I've ever gotten sustained for a long time was around 5.5-6K

LAN

To celebrate my last night using a high-speed connection for the next three months, I'm downloading cartoons and ISO's. Any other suggestions?

Nice work with LoserJabber 1.6, by the way.
