Please welcome me to the 21st century

Standard

We are now wireless, folks.
At Walmart last weekend I stumbled upon a wireless router thingie (I’m so tech-savvy) originally priced at $90 but marked down to $50. It appeared to be a pretty decent one from what I could tell with my vast computer knowledge (in other words, I had to come home and post to some forums to ask how to figure out if the thing would even work with my laptop).
At any rate, it turned out to be just what I needed (amazing!) and I finally got it set up today. I can now go anywhere in my entire house (and probably out in the front yard, as well) and be online. So where am I sitting right now?
In the exact same spot I’ve always sat to use the laptop ever since we first got it.
But, darn it, I could get up and go to another room if I wanted to!
(By the way, I’m finding out all kinds of cool stuff they have nowadays. You can make your printer wireless, even. I can put it on my network — the router has room for four devices — put the printer in the sun room and print stuff on it from the laptop in the living room. How cool is that? I’ll be thrilled to get the stupid thing off my living room floor!)

About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.
