Yesterday, in a bit of cosmic irony, I spent seven hours onsite trying to untangle a client’s backup system (Retrospect, you lovable, miserable bitch, you) while here at the house our seven-year-old DSL router, a SMC Barricade, decided to finally bite it and stop switching packets.

The “Backup Solution”, a Belkin wireless router I got in trade somewhere, is servicable, but I’m now faced with the strange phenomena of downlink hubs that suddenly don’t work anymore. All of this means that the Lockardugan Command Center is wireless until we can get a new router on the case–looks like I’m making a trip to the Office Depot this afternoon.
