Out of the Blue

A little out of kilter here... I caused a couple of disconnected moments when the dreaded F.M. reared its ugly head, but I managed to take advantage of the relative quiet yesterday by installing a wireless access point on the network here in the BlueTower. The WAP I got actually was pretty determined to be the main router on the network, providing Network Address Translation for all the client machines, but after going through the installation, I was able to re-tweak it so that the wireless router is just another node on the hub, and it all seems to work just as I want it to. This is not exactly the time of year to take a laptop out in the backyard and enjoy some outdoor computing, but in the meantime, the benefits of having wireless access inside the house will have to suffice. Along the way I learned I have an "Aornum" spyware program on my computer. I guess I got to experience the ups and downs of modern computing in one fell swoop.
