I have a project today.
Life savvy-slash-reasonably intelligent people-slash-those armed capably enough to cope in the world might think of this as more of a cute “project”.
But not me.
I’m installing a new modem/router.
Witness my white whale
Isn’t that cute? It’s called a surfboard.
I’m appropriately terrified.
I may as well be changing Angela’s oil on my own. I’m having flashbacks to the lawn mower engine I disassembled in my Junior High Shop class and gave up putting back together. I just stuffed it into a locker and waited out the end of the school year. Thankfully, my dad got promoted at work and relocated the family half a country away.
It’s the Shop Class Dropout Relocation Program.
So, yeah. This is more daunting than cute for me.
But after paying for Comcast’s modem/router at least 5x over in their monthly equipment rental fees, I’m bound and determined to make this switch and then fling their equipment at their building as I whiz by in Angela.
So, wish me luck. If you never hear from me again, don’t be too surprised.
Oh, gawd…it just occurred to me: I’m going to have to come up with a pithy new wifi name. Farewell, YouGoGlennCoco.
