Torrential rain was not fun. Bit Torrent, however is. I'd rather be worried about torrential bits than scooping gathering water with a bucket due to poor drainage in my backyard. Which is exactly what I did (going to keep doing?) at periodic intervals, to abate rain water coming too close to the house.

At some point, very soon I'll figure out why water does not go down my drainage pipe.

Anyway, things are always hectic. I set up my wireless network, but I gave in... When I realized I needed a bridge for my appliction due to poor signal strength, at first I wanted to go with HostAP as a solution. However, the only box that I had was the size of a refridgerator, and I feared that I would have to put it in an outside environment. So....I gave in. I got a linksys bridge, and if salted, I could possibly eat it and survive.
Maybe I'm getting old.
Why am I continuously fascinated at the diminishing size and increasing power of p00ters these days? It's a never ending source of amazement, and never sinks in. Anyway, my wireless experiment is working, and not sucking gobs of power, stubbing toes, nor making scraping noises.
