Oh Hoh

Good God, is Rob (aka. "Cylon Lover" on XBOX Live) getting on my nerves. He and Adam like to play various games together online. Recently it's been Halo 3. Fine. However, they like to whine about the game being laggy, and it's gotten to the point where he's told me to do various things with my laptop, or to "stop downloading the porno", or to reset the modem.

When I was on the phone tonight to tell Dad we were ready to be picked up, Adam came on, and said he was going to bed, and that when I got home I'd have to figure out why the wireless internet wasn't working. All I told him then was that I'd see what was wrong, and to not listen to Rob if he told him to do anything with it anymore.

After dropping Josh off, Dad said there was a problem too. Two people telling me there's a problem before I even get to take a look at it.

Then I actually got home and Naomi told me the exact same thing. Three.

Just as they said, as far as anyone's computer (or the Wii, even) was concerned, the connection everyone used before no longer existed. Not only did he (Adam) close my laptop, when I had torrents for which I was the uploader seeding, but he actually reset the modem, with the little button on the bottom. The problem was easy enough to solve (just had to go through the basic setup, and choose the old WEP key again), but so annoying. Sent Rob the following email though:

"Although it's not my place to dictate what you can and cannot do with your games / 360s, please *don't* instruct my brother ("Remnant") to reset the modem. If you absolutely have to, tell him to turn the power off for 10 seconds or so, then turn it back on. It makes quite a difference, and saves me the hassle of having everyone come to me at once saying "the wireless internet's not working".

Thanks.
"

Yeah. Maybe he'll send an equally pissed-off reply back, but whatever. I was going to say something about not sacrificing my stuff just so they can play their game(s) at the fastest speed possible, but that probably wouldn't help.

And what's more, went upstairs to grab a bag of candy from my top bunk, and on the way up, Naomi opened her door, and said "Thank you... for fixing it." She really meant it too. That's sort of sad, actually, but meh.

As for work, decent enough, considering I had to do all the dishes, and wasn't feeling the greatest thanks to something I ate earlier in the day. Ange is supposed to close tomorrow night, so right now Steve suspects that either Jess will be hanging around most of the night (even though she doesn't work there anymore), or Ange will call in sick or something. I'd have to agree with him, but we'll see tomorrow night, I suppose.

Anyways though, almost finished level 5 of Free Mode on Picross DS, so I'm going to try to do those last couple puzzles. I think level 6 is 20x20 too. Fun :s
