Hey everyone. We’ve been waiting. Still.
Hopefully we’ll have some news soon, but in the meantime, there’s a traveling group on their way to Ethiopia to pick up their children.
If you know me, I’ve always been a big fan of calms before storms. There is a certain beauty in the wait that I really want to grasp onto; that for all the years that we’ll have our daughter, these are moments we’ll remember as well.
Mental note for myself: we were at an outing yesterday for parents of ET children in Bloomington at State Farm Park. I had brought some bubbles with me and they were a huge hit with the older kids. We’re going to remember to bring some to ET with us.
That in reading the previously mentioned post there were *several* times I actually cried I was laughing so hard….yes, I was *crying* with laughter.
So, there’s a blog I’ve become an obsessive blog-stalker of and look forward to when he posts things. It’s ‘Stuff Christians Like‘, SCL for short. The linked post is probably my favorite of the blog so far. I’ve been a long time sound guy at our church and it’s sprung up a love for all things even remotely related to recording/AV/DJing/etc. Anyway, it’s a creative outlet and he takes a really good grab of it with the post about Sound guy haikus. The comments are HILARIOUS.
Hopefully this is useful to someone:
One of the big problems I fixed this evening has been plaguing me for a little while and this URL covers some of the solutions that people have found, but I think I found a solution. What happens is that at home and at coffeeshops the wireless will occasionally drop off or crawl or just generally have issues. What was mitigating this problem was the coffee shop has crummy wireless anyway and often connectivity issues were due to that. Also, at home, my useage is a bit different.
Anyway, after doing some research, I have a theory on what the issue is and a solution. The commanlity between my wireless points is the vendor–linksys. After doing some experimenting with the solutions in the thread, I found that the encryption is set wrong on the wireless cards. My router is doing WPA2 and the client is WPA. Bam, switch the client to WPA2 and you’ve got some working wireless connections.
