Such Simple Instructions...

and yet he still managed to screw things up. Right. Before I left for work, I opened notepad on the other computer here and typed out something for Adam, telling him that if he still couldn't get on the internet, to turn the modem off for 10 seconds, then back on again. In between now and then, he's done something to it so that now, when trying to connect, the following error is produced:

"Error 769: The specified destination is not reachable."

My laptop, however, appears to be unaffected (the only strange problem was that it was on the floor, instead of on the table where I'd left it), so I don't know what the problem is. According to Naomi though, it was screwed up for a good three hours while I was gone though, which is curious. Just what did he do?

Also sent Chesh the money for that tail, even though she won't be able to start it 'till late September, but I'd rather have that taken care of right now just so there's less to worry about.

I really need to figure out what's wrong with the computer though, so let's see what Google says...

It was the same problem I installed a couple days ago to limit Naomi's connection speed that was causing the problem. And WTF at whoever they were talking to from Sympatico said. They being Dad, Naomi, and Adam. While the person did correctly figure out that there was a specific program blocking access to the internet, their solution, instead of saying "Here's what you can to do pinpoint the program, and once you do uninstall it", told them the whole computer needed to be taken back to whoever it was purchased from and they'd have to uninstall it themselves. Hah. You really would like that wouldn't you. But the problem's all taken care of now, and even though I have the program set up once again to limit Naomi's speed at 10kb, I've still warned her that while it's alright to have everything going full speed while I'm off at work and everyone else is asleep, the same is not true for the rest of the time.

Also, finally got Picross DS. While I do realize I said I wasn't going to stay up 'till 10 in the morning again, it wasn't until 5 that I realized I still had to do the dishes, and in the middle of those, Dad came down so I asked him what he'd done to the computer, and by the time I figured out what was wrong and fixed it up, it was already 7, so I went to McDonalds a second time. Never again. Between the nasty styrofoam eggs and sticky processed cheese I thought I was going to be sick. But after that, I figured it'd just be easier to stay up 'till 10.

Closing tonight with Ange and Eric, and I'm not looking forward to working with Ange, but Eric, yes. Despite having a bit too much energy at times, he's really fun and easy to get along with. But then again, thinking about Ange, unless other people come in to visit her, she won't have too many distractions, and thus might actually get stuff done for once. I hate to say it, but seriously...

And sort of have something to look forward to on Saturday. Aside from sleeping in, that is. Josh wants to go see that Simpsons movie, so he asked me if I wanted to come along, and I said yes (well more "I suppose..."), and Adam's thinking of coming along too, so that'll be different.

He's also back now, so time to post this and play Picross DS :3
