So, yeah. I was born shortly before midnight 25 years ago today. Which is to say, 25 years minus ... a little over three hours by the time this gets out. My birthday swag is as follows:

  • Planescape: Torment via Good Old Games.
  • A total of USD$90 from various sources. ($20 of which was actually payment for previous work helping with the new house's newer porch.)
  • A rather nice red shirt from the grandmothers (That is, my maternal grandmother and her partner.)
  • Pratchett books! Guards! Guards! (the sole remaining Discworld book that I did not yet own), I Shall Wear Midnight (his newest book), and The Unadulterated Cat (let's call it nonfiction, about real cats, not these mass-produced poffballs you get these days. A real cat doesn't have a name, but something you yell at it; a real cat has ears that look like they were trimmed with pinking shears).
  • Edward Gorey's The Osbick Bird in wall-calendar form.
  • A pair of secondhand wireless routers.
  • An IOU for two Scott Pilgrim books from my sister; Amazon's delivery speed has failed her.
  • It is entirely a coincidence, but today is when I saw this silly video.
  • 0 sacred tombs defiled
  • 1 pureed flock of starlings

once again I shall wish you a day of happiness, and once again I shall follow up the sending by passing out from exhaustion

a pair of wireless routers? how much wireless does one person need?

My mom said "Well, we have these two old wireless routers, because I'm not sure what you'll need; [name of friend] said he thought the smaller one was more like what you needed, but I gave you both of them just in case ..." (Hint: the bigger one doesn't have a Cat5 or cable in-jack, just a DSL/phone jack.) Also, for the record, the smaller one is a D-Link WBR-1310. I still need to actually set it up for either of my computers to actually use it; my main motivation was just to set up a LAN so I could connect directly to my laptop.


Happy belated birthday; I'm glad to hear it went so well. If anyone says being born near christmas is awesome, they're lying.
