+London is officially booked!
-I haven’t had Internet in the apartment for 3 days.#
-I’m beginning to think the problem is with my laptop, not the network.*
-I also haven’t had hot water for 2 days.
+I went to Kinsale on Saturday and it was beautiful.
+I spent Sunday afternoon/evening watching “Firefly” and writing.
+I got to hang out with the summer school kids Friday and Saturday night, and I met a reader yesterday!
-Did I mention I don’t have hot water or Internet?
*Someone out there has to know something about wireless networks, and maybe they can help me. The only internet access I have is the wireless in the common room. It flat-out stopped working Saturday night. The receptionist said someone came to look at it yesterday, but I still couldn’t connect. This is what happens every time I boot up: The little bubble appears in the corner saying “wireless networks available, click this bubble for more info.” I click the bubble. Two networks are listed, the one I use and a locked one belonging to someone else. I click the one I usually use. It tells me there’s already a profile set up for this network – I can click Back and choose a different network, or click Next and replace the profile. I click Next and it gives me a “connect” button. I click this button and nothing happens. If I click on the wireless button in the Start bar (the one that looks like a radioactive computer), it says no networks are available, and I could press “refresh” until Judgment Day and nothing would show up. Incidentally, if I click “back” on the first screen, it also loses all traces of networks.
I would send all this to Dell customer support, but in keeping with my stretch of bad karma, I left all my computer info at the apartment.
