These drugs have me very, VERY tired.
I also can’t fall asleep. It’s amazing, the circles my brain runs in when I’m this sleepy, and yet not sleepING. For instance, while I lay in bed I figured out that the problem with wireless connectivity in my house can be solved if I simply take the wireless-access computers and force them to not use DHCP. I don’t know what the DHCP problem is with my router, but as I lay in bed I figured out that that it was DHCP that was failing.
So I got out of bed, printed an IPCONFIG /ALL from a machine where wired DHCP had provided valid settings, picked a likely IP addy, and then plugged those settings in to the wireless Kidputer. BAM. Instant internet access. With a 128-bit WEP key, no less.
I also had some other genius ideas while not asleep. I probably shouldn’t implement them just now, though. It’s 2am, and I really do need to try to get some sleep.
The good news is that the time I was thinking about spending tomorrow giving my 10-year old internet access can be spent napping instead. It’s only a slight hitch, after all.
