Ugh. If it’s not my laptop display freezing, or the wireless networking not working for some weird unknown reason, of course it has to be power outages that render the modem incapable of connecting. -.-;; It’s really stupid. Ever since Daddy installed the wireless network, the entire upstairs has been having power shortages, and lights will dim, tvs will blink off for a split second, and the computers go on the battery backup (complete with BEEP! BEEP! BEEP! buzzzz).
In the past few weeks, the power even stays off for minutes on end, and nothing works. Today the power was out for a little while. It came back after 20 or so minutes. But now, for some reason, the internet cuts off and I get disconnected from the network. That means the modem and network router both get cut from the power supply somehow. O.< And I keep connecting and disconnecting and so I couldn’t say how many “Cannot find server” pages I got today. -_-
To top it off, even after the modem and/or router start working again, my laptop doesn’t pick up on the network signal for a few minutes. I have no idea why. At Noelle’s house it connects aut-o-mat-i-cal-ly. ¬_¬
Spent most of today working on a new layout for IAT. :D Since it’s the only thing to do, really, on my laptop sans internet. >_> First I was making it a frames layout, then figured it’d be less to load if I did it tables, since the “background” is 25 or so small images, and use side-scrolling and pop-ups. So now I’m writing up the stuff and messing around with div positioning. ^^;; How fuun.
