Why Technology Sucks...

You might remember my tirade of a few weeks ago with Telus' little 7 hour installation. Well, we've now nearly tied that experience. Installing the router and TRYING, TRYING I tell you to put together a home network. Its friggin impossible. I've messed up my laptop so it now requires a password every time i turn it on and had to spend almost 45 minutes in chat with an hp service guy to try and figure out what to do. *sigh* And the network, still doesn't exist... oh the joys...there's a night out of my life I'll never get back again!

The only good thing is the router finally works. Don't know how, because it didn't for the first 3 hours, but somehow between dad and i playing with the settings, something clicked.

Yikes!

It's a conspiracy between the technology field and the psychiatric medication manufacturers. I'm positive.

You might just be right on that. After my day today, I'd fully believe it.

Get this, by some weird miracle I got the network to set up for at least some of the afternoon. Then it froze up on me twice and hung up on the windows loading screen, so i went into safe mode and restored it to friday's settings. So I lost the network but I figured no big deal I can set it up again, er yeah right. When it rebooted (w/o the need to ask for a password that never existed) it decided it had no wireless and can't find the router (the same laptop that could connect to the dsl modem wirelessly without the modem for 2 whole weeks) grr. So I'm now trying to set things up again, and it won't recognize anything. I swear, for $20 I'd throw that router and everything else off the bridge.
