File under 7 impossible things before breakfast…

File under 7 impossible things before breakfast… I ran into an interesting problem yesterday when my laptop suddenly stopped connecting to the office network. It could see the connection, but never got an IP address. It’s a fairly new machine, but had been working fine for about 2 weeks prior to this. 2 hours of…

Status: Brain Chemistry

Dear Brain Chemistry, yes I did work enough and accomplished enough this weekend. Would you kindly bugger off!

Here’s a business model for you… How about I: Charge you $4 for shipping Send your package to another state (In the utterly wrong direction) Then drop it in the US mail for actual delivery DHL – When going out to your own mailbox is just too hard!
