paging all computer geeks

So I had the fiber optic tech out again to see if they can get my travel laptop to connect to the verzion FIOS that we installed. Four hours and still nothing. They claim its my computer however I took it to work and it connected just fine to the WiFi there. I have taken this computer all over the world and never had issues to connect via LAN or WiFi.

The computer picks up the network and is able to connect to it but when you go to any browser or even messengers - nothing comes through. Yet when you ping a website it goes. You can also go to the router via the browser, the firewall was set to low -- still nothing. At this point they are out of solutions which is where you all come in.

Please help. All I can figure it that the fiber optic network/router requires some authorization that my little Win2000 professional laptop is not willing to give. I need to find out the what and where - is it a missing/broken file .... I am sure someone out there may know the solution so please help me find it.

Today was to be such a good day but as always ... Well there was AP drama and then I get home and see my toys came just to find out that the fiber optic crap is broken - no TV no internet and no fucking way to play with my TIVO which was just delivered. After 3 agonizing house verzion decided there is no over the phone fix and they have to come out tomorrow. Fuck so i took my laptop (the one that didn't work on their system to the office to work and what do you know there it works.

Weekend and Finger Licking Jin Treats

The weekend was fairly busy. I worked Friday night and Saturday night. But did get off early Saturday having a nasty Migraine. Sunday was time for the AP meeting. We were meeting with the self defense instructor that taught the girls to punch and kick (some of them took the chance to work out some frustration right there!) and then it was off to have our Birthday celebration.

Miss Jin baked us a fantastic cake which was demolished in record time. I barely had a chance to save a piece for Grumpy. Wonder if they liked it?!

I know its pathetic ...

(written 10/4/07 2:55pm) ... but I just can't help it. I am so sad and homesick right now I was actually crying. I turned 30 today (and yes that is sad too but not the point of this post) and Grumpy and I were to go for dinner with some friends of mine and just celebrate. Well one by one people canceled and even Grumpy had to because he was working late. It was down to just 3 my Scottish friend, Ms. D. and myself. Then I call my friend to find out about the logistics and I can tell that she wasn't into the idea of going. So I told her to call me later which she did to let me know that she was canceling too...


I couldn't finish this post - its now the 6th and I will try to do so now. Yes I ended up spending my birthday at home alone. I started feeling a little better after I got home. One of my friends from Germany was online and we chatted and slowly I calmed down. I was still really upset and part of that came from the way we celebrate birthdays in Germany. There you have a celebration/party with your friends and family and everyone comes and or calls. They all did call and email even people I hadn't spoken to in a year. Hell even my sister in the first time of gee I think 10 years said happy birthday. Grumpy ended up feeling miserable too because he had said the week before it would be hard to take off so we agreed we'd go out the night before (which we did) and he'd hook up with us after we get back from dinner. Well with me not going for dinner and being so upset he felt bad for being stuck at work till after 10pm. I told him its okay and it wasn't his fault but it was still hard on him too.

I can honestly say this was the worst birthday as far as my local "real" world but there were lots of warm cyber wishes and even gifts. I loved the dinner and movie date Grumpy and I had the night before too.

All in all I felt like Carrie from Sex in the city in the episode where they were to celebrate her birthday at this restaurant and everyone was late. Carrie sat their and no one showed - that was me and I will not do this again. I much rather work or go out of town like we did last year.

Now its back to homework while I am snacking on my sweet box from Ms. Jin.
