Last week, out household lost someone very special to us: the living room desktop computer. That computer served us faithfully for two years, but a lost power supply and a fried motherboard just aren't easy things to recover from.
So, we had to let the old girl go.
The new computer that Common Sense Mom bought last night is a nice replacement and should fill the whole in my heart nicely. It helps that we salvaged the hard drive from the old computer and installed all of our old files on the new one. That's good because I have irreplaceable pictures, stories and columns that have never run and all of my porn on that hard drive. Gigabytes of porn.
We keep running into the same problem with our router and cable modem setup. When the computer was gone, I could plug the router directly into it and my laptop was off and running. Now, with the new hardware, the router is putting out a signal, but it somehow got turned into a security-enabled network that I need a password for. I obviously don't know what that password is.
I recently hired Spacemonkey to double as my attorney and tech guy (without monetary compensation) and he is going to have to help me fix this, as I am not in the least technologically inclined.
