Sadly I'm describing my internet connection, which seems to dropping on and off with worrying frequency. Why do these things always seem to happen when I am home, and thus when I am moaned at to deal with it continuously?
Anyway basically first of all one computer connects but the other doesn't. After checking quite a few settings, I discover that my sister was mucking around with some of the settings and disabled the network. When asked later she admitted doing this, but didn't think it would be a good idea to tell me….
So that got the first problem sorted. About 2 hours later, both the computers start losing their connection. At first just the internet, but sometimes the network connection as well. After upgrading the Router to the latest firmware (a process which took a long time due to aforementioned intermittent internet connection) I'm still not having much luck. Then I realise that someone has knocked the plug a bit loose for the router…..
This seems to solve the lose of network connection. But the internet is still bobbing up and down happily. So after running nearly every test…I still haven't really got anywhere. I managed to get the log from the router, it is claiming a Loss of synchronization error seems to be the problem. Thankfully this doesn't seem to be an uncommon problem (the router is a DG834…and the problem is mentioned on their forums). However sadly while not uncommon, there is no definate solution.So it looks like I have more fun tomorrow trying to figure it out.
I've also finally started getting into work. Now the commonwealth games have finished, I'm quietly optimistic of actually being able to get things done.
(Oh I've also got my new glasses. Cost a fair amount but thanks to specsavers amazing 2 for 1 deal I have now got 2 pairs. This doesn't mean however that I am in any way encouraging a repeat performance of what happened to the last ones on the basis that I now have a backup)

Ah back home again. So naturally I'm blogging again as I've got nothing else to do. I expect to be spending more time on facebook as well.
Anyway naturally I plan on getting lots of work done, sorting out jobs and generally doing lots of little things that need to be done. However I'll probably end up mostly doing what I did last holiday..watching TV (well and now also mastering Pro Evo.)
End of Term was very strange. It definately didn't feel right coming back at 3:30am completly sober. Still it was actually a pretty good night for the cloakroom, very busy and hard work, but we managed to have a pretty decent time in there. Although obviously I would have rather been living it up.
Anyway, I ought to be goind to bed now so I can get up bright and early tomorrow to start off on a good foot (top of the list if booking a eye appointment to get some new glasses). So naturally I'm probably going to go off and watch scrubs.

First entry for ages and I think this is well up there with my other contenders for latest blog entry. The only difference this time is that I am completly and utterly sober. I suppose I should mention to anyone that reads my blog and doesn't know me that, yes I did make it onto the RAG exec (Treasurer all the way) and that this has resulted in needing to train to be a cloakroom coordinator.
So I ended up being giving Crash (which obviously I changed to Metropolis due to Fi-fi's birthday party), and the End of Term Party, something that will certainly be interesting, it goes on til 3 and everyone will be wasted and coming back at the end demanding their coats when they've lost their tickets because they won't be able to go back and get them on Monday. The worse part is missing out on going out with everyone though. I guess I have to make sacrifices….RAG will consume me eventually.
1) I badly, badly need a haircut
2) I'm still wearing my old glasses. I suppose I might as well leave it til I get home now, they aren't that bad really.
Perhaps when I'm not so tired I might actually put up some of my more recent thoughts. But I'm not promising anything.
