    You should look into making a WiFi Cantenna...they're cheap, fun to make, and they really boost signal strength. :thumb:

    Well...considering they've got you stuffed in to a sever closet, I hope you'd be a pro by now... :p

    Nah, I chewed my way out of the server room, it's too cold in there!! I typically Netsupport into the servers I work on, or I use the blade center management console's remote control.
    The main campus's servers take up two fairly large rooms rather than closets. The server room also houses the network's backbone, so there's quite a bit of equipment in there. Still, there's plenty of space to move around in. Things don't get cramped until I get into the server racks, and that is more of a poor cable management\containment issue than anything else. You would think that if a rack includes cable management arms, they'd make them sturdy enough to hold all the cables that the server needs. This is not the case however, it is apparently too logical a notion to actually occur to the manufacturer.

    I made spinach and ricotta gnocchi last night and had some cheese that needed eating in the fridge. I used it to top off the gnocchi. You'd think that after 10 years of being lactose intolerant I'd know by now not to do stupid things like that but oh no. Spent from 2am until 5am in the bathroom alternating between bending over the loo and sitting on it.

    On the plus side, it meant that my fat intake for yesterday ended up being a lot less than it was!

    You shouldn't eat cheese in the fridge. You could catch a cold!

    :p

    (More seriously, I hope you're feeling better!)

    Not too sure if I like this new pair of shorts I'm wearing. Besides having an appearance of being dirty, even when fresh out of the washer/dryer, they're a cat hair magnet. :bad:

    I'd toss them, but unfortunately, I paid a good amount for them. :doh:

    My phone just died :( I need to call mom. *grabs a hammer*

    Exams done, even if I fared rather miserably on this last one. Life is gloomy today.

    Weeeell... :p It's not the phone that died, it's the sim card apparently - so my entire phone book is pulverised.
    There was a storm, trolleys were down, had to walk across town to the bus stop (and wait for it about 45 mins).
    This last exam was the one I liked best - and fared worst at it.
    In all the rush I didn't get to go shopping for some shiny new books.
    And - that cloud apparently followed me home and is now above the neighbouring city, looking quite menacing and throwing lightning around.

    OTOH... no more exams. You're right Magister - life is *not* gloomy. :)

    Been there, done that... never had the problem with any iDEN SIM, though...

    And speaking of iDEN... I called T-Mike saying I wanted to jump ship to the competition, and those nice bastards had to offer me a deal. Fun to see them bending over to keep my buisness. If this was a perfect world... on second thought, it's Rated-R, and better stay in my head.

    Work was surprisingly uneventful this week. Well, except for that 45 year old (word I can't use here) who was hitting on me. Excuse me while I go scrub my brain with Pinesol and a SOS to wash this image from my mind.

    *EDIT* Ahh, yes, of course, they gave me an EPP plan. Thank you, Telus.

    Obviously I do have internet access on vacation and time to spare. More precisely: I can't sleep :coffee2::sleep:

    I wanna get back into shape, but it's soo depressing to start running again when you can't go as far as you used to. Once upon a time I'd go 3-5 miles a day... now I think I need to work up from one :(

    I can still run a 5:30 mile tho, but anything more and I'm gone.

    When I used to be fit (a looooooooong time ago) I used to run as far as I could then walk until I got my breath back and then run again. It's suprising how quick you build up your distance. However, you do look like a bit of a prat.
