1) New network card
2) Help in stores
Yesterday I bought a new wireless PC card for my laptop, it was plug-n-play, best $136 I have ever spent. I put the card in and within a minute I was whizzing along the information superhighway on my old Sony Vaio. It had been so long and I had to update all of my favorites, because I wanted them to mirror my work favorites. Yeah it is kinda silly, but I like to have continuity. I also had to upgrade my AIM because I was about five versions behind the curve. Does anybody else with two computers in their life have the problem of having files on one PC, but not the other? I wanted to look at a file last night and then realized it was at work. How frustrating!! Time flew by last night because I was chatting with a bunch of people because apparently all of the collage girls come online after I go home from work. You may be wondering why I spent all of that money, the reason is because I am now going to try and get back into programming in Java. I have a couple of projects I want to work on and also have a couple of projects I have to work on.
I went to a bike store yesterday looking for some parts to improve my bike and the guy almost talked me into buying a new one instead of fixing up my current bike. It was weird I used to be against getting help in stores, but now I actually go to these people for advice. It just seems they probably know what they are talking about and if they don't it is likely they no more than I do. You certainly have to think about what they say because they are also trying to sell you stuff and it may sway their answers. For the most part though I hope they are being honest.
How did I come to this?
I dream myself a thousand times around the world,
But I can�t get out of this place
