    Yay! My internet's back!

    Well, ever since I "accidentally" broke Mediacom's cable box, my internet had "mysteriously" stopped working. Now that I got it back, I'm ready for two things; 1) a gigantic middle finger for Mediacom, and 2) to let everyone know that working overnights next to bars is entertaining. July 3rd/4th, I had 6 girls flash me as I was printing. That was the highlight of my fourth, considering I slept from 7AM to 6PM, missing most of the festivities.

    Now, when does ISU football start, I need to get back inside Jack Trice.

    Good for them that they recognized the need for speed by saluting you.

    1998. September something-or-other. Location - Ames, Iowa. Miles to the east, ISU has just defeated Iowa.

    Driving/walking around campus, prior to that date, I had never witnessed so much flashing by women in my life.

    Good times...

    Heard that during Katrina they were flashing just to get a ride on the boat as they left town.

    Isn't it amazing how technology can change your life. Nowadays, if I use a mouse without a scroll wheel I feel like I'm in the friggin' stone ages.

    It won't be long before using any mouse will be considered living in the stone age.

    From another thread:
    This is hilarious because of what happened when I went to return my cable box yesterday. The guy told me that if I disconnected my cable box, and kept regular cable, my bill would be $120/mo. instead of the $85 it was with the box. I "accidentally" bumped into the box on my way out after completely shutting off all cable, breaking their box into about 50 pieces. I think I can claim a moral victory for that.
    After I got home from that incident, my cable and internet were completely shut off. Took them until today to get out here and "fix" it.

    Re: Yay! My internet's back!

    No doubt.

    My boss just stopped by telling us about the issues his daughter, who's going to be a frosh at ISU this coming fall, was having getting her brand new laptop hooked up with the Univeristy system. Some issues with Vista I guess.

    It just amazed me. It was only 13 short years ago (yeah, an eternity in tech chronology) that I was a senior in MIS at ISU and the fact that a scarce few had personal pc's, There was one lab on campus available to the Business college, and there wasn't much of a "network" to have problems with.

    I tell ya, you kids don't just know how good you got it nowadays.. (I've always wanted to be able to say that)

    God I'm old....

    I dunno, I still had to heat my frozen burrito for 4 minutes yesterday. The Jetson's promised me flying cars and instataneous food. I've yet to see either...
