I Am Broadband!!!

Finally! The DSL modem arrived today. I am all configured and up and running. No more 56k Dialup! Yea!!!! This is very exciting! Abulsme.com is now going at fullspeed again! Well… not like this is mega-bandwidth or anything. But much better than dialup. And should be reliably 24/7 again.

I still have to find where I packed my hub, and a serial cable to connect my antiquated old mac and its keyboard, which of course is so old I can’t just pick it up in the store any more. I just spent an hour crawling over boxes in the garage, sticking my head into holes between 6 foot tall stacks of boxes and prying open individual boxes trying to find the box where I had those cords. I found the keyboard, but not the cords to connect it. Urgh! Anyway, once I find that stuff, I’ll actually set things up a little differently than I have now. But everything is up and running.

So yea! Broadband!

Finally!!!!

Brandy’s Billion

According to my calculations, in a little under 3 hours from the time I make this post, at 19:26:40 UTC (3:26:40 PM Eastern Daylight Time) Brandy will be exactly one billion seconds old. There will be a short celebration at that time.

Congratulations Brandy! One Billion sure does sound old!

Um, uh… but it isn’t! :-)
