Well this is a welcome surprise. It seems that the month-long delay I was expecting for Internet service at home was trimmed down to about 12 minutes.
That being the time it took me to clone Windows XP back on to the X60s, install the proprietary network setup software, feed it my account information and click a few buttons. Wow.
That’s quite the change from the month or so it took to get things arranged and working last time. I guess there’s something to be said for keeping the same connection and service provider. At this rate, I should be able to get the rest of the house in order in an hour or so.
And perhaps in a day’s time, the rest of this site will be ready to go. Good news, that.
P.S.: A small slice of irony: Literally minutes after I posted this, XP bluescreened. I couldn’t get my camera out fast enough before it had rebooted itself. Total uptime, about an hour. Sigh … is it any wonder I use Linux?
