It's important not to fall asleep, because well... then you're not actually working, are you?

The perils of working on a laptop in a lazy boy chair, I guess.

But I think it's really my cat's fault. He saw me lean back and stretch. Then he jumped up on my chest and I figured "I'll let him stay, but just for a minute."


It was a good nap, though. Brief, but good.

I think I'll move back to the desk or table for a while.

In other news, the dentist visit was fun as always, and the Comcast guy got my cable modem working. He didn't even flinch when I handed him a Mac notebook with OS X to use. He'd never seen Firefox before, but that hardly mattered.

I now have redundant ISPs at home again! God, I'm a geek.

Now where's that config file I was tweaking...?

Heh, and all this time, I was wondering what your status message was saying..

I first chalked it up to: "Hey Jeremy is pitching jokes at Kasia again"

Then it was: "Oh, hes probably at some meeting"

Then: "Why the f*ck am I look at this again?"

Then: "Oh, so thats what he meant. Whoops."

Just a quick question, out of curiousity...

How have you set up the whole "redundant ISPs" networking-wise? I was weighing doing the same thing, and wonder is it worth it for reliability/speed/etc. - as well as how exactly I should do it.

No, I haven't gone that far. They don't fail *that* often. :-)

But I have considered it.

In my opinion working from home is dangerous because of the 1000 other thinks you can do at home.

-Phone calls from friends you have last seen in high school
-girl friends or maybe wifes
- and so on

I have learned that working in your companies office is much more effective than working form home.
