Out of the Blue

Today is the first full day of Chanukah, as the festival of lights began at sundown last night, so happy Hanukkah to all (my way of covering a couple of the different spellings in one fell swoop). Our family holiday season, which encompasses Christmas, Hanukah (heh, snuck another in), Saturnalia, and of course, Festivus, is also in full swing, we put up the tree here last night, and are headed over to my dad's this afternoon for the first of our celebrations of the season. I just hope I don't get picked for the feats of strength this year.

There's always one of you isn't there? It's bad enough you usurped a pagan holiday (as well as what you've done to them over the centuries), but you can't even have the good fucking grace and compassion to just say 'Happy Xmas' or the like.
Lay off the dogma and try to actually love somebody.

You shouldn't be so ashamed and try to please all the masses.

Sometimes people say things that are really stupid. This is one of those times.

Woohoo! Trans-Europe Express is the perfect album for long distance drives, as I found out on my two hour trek north last weekend.

I don't think Blue is ashamed of anything. He's simply respecting the people that read the site and post here. And people from all around the world, with many religions, do so.

You shouldn't be so ashamed and try to please all the masses. I celebrate Christmas. That is all. I doubt very seriously you have a menorah sitting in your living room.

Yo Creston! I stopped at the gamestop over on riverside...out by the Outback and Red Robin. They had one copy of X2, but the seal on top looked like it might have been opened (or the box was at least sat on). I then went over to Woodland a found a single copy there, which I grabbed (granted someone had it in the S section, which made no sense - the box there also looked sat on - WTF?).

So you can either hit riverside, or pester the folks at woodland. But X2 IS out there!

I set up a Linksys wireless router like this one just a little while ago:

http://www.linksys.com/Products/product.asp?grid=33&scid=35&prid=508

This was set up in a house that was over 6500 sqft.

They had ok access at the far end of the house. Otherwise it seemed pretty quick to me.

I think I picked up the router and a notebook card for under $125.00 on sale. Not too bad.

I read on http://www.broadbandreports.com that there is a way to boost the signal via a firmware tweak.

Broadband Reports has decent forums as well.

I'll be getting my new PC soon and since it will be sitting in a room at the other end of the house from my wired router, I was investigating wireless networking. I don't know a whole lot about it, so it would be helpful if someone could tell me the do's and dont's of wireless. A website link may be useful as well.

I'm interested in getting a wireless AP that has a few ethernet ports so I can keep all my existing connections. I'm not sure if it's worth getting G standard stuff over the B and I'm not quite sure what company is good for making wireless stuff. Any information you have for me would be great.

EDIT: Also, what's a good price for a wireless PCI card? They seem damn expensive.

Count me in on any work to bring Festivus to Chicago.

New Orleans has Festivus

http://www.nola.com/news/t-p/index.ssf?/base/news-0/1070524542284510.xml


"If holiday stress still has your number, then crawl over to the Festivus pole where shoppers will be encouraged to participate in the “airing of
grievances” pole (free of tinsel – “too distracting”) ready for shoppers to write doand affix scraps of paper with hand-written “grievances”
from the year 2003"

Now on to the campaign to make Festivus an official Chicago Holiday. We've got Casimir Pulaski day already.
