Woohoo!! We have contact. I spent part of yesterday setting up my cable. I'm adventurous and took the self-installation route. After going in to work for several hours on Saturday, I went to Circuit City and picked up the modem and install kit. I opened them and the wireless router. After scanning the directions, I thought it was best to tackle the challenge with a fresh mind. So, I waited until yesterday morning to give it a try. The router directions were a bit confusing for me so I decided to hook up the cable first and make sure I had it operable before hooking up the router. The router was not being cooperative. The software said it couldn't find an internet connection. I took a break for a couple of hours and tried again. It still wasn't working. I sent Kevin a desparate message for help and he came over last night and got me hooked up. Thanks Kevin!!! Woohoo!!! I'm on cable and I am wireless. I still need to install some software but I'm zooming along. Honestly, I don't see much of a difference from dial-up, other than being able to view video feeds and music without the buffering factor.
I've had some new people poke their heads in here lately and leave me comments. I've spent the last hour or so searching them out so I could add them to Bloglines. Some I failed at finding. I think I like Freee's idea of leaving a link in comments now that we have that linkable option. It was frustrating trying to track people down. I clicked on their profile, no link. I then pasted their username into the Hometown search page. I hit debug for the Runtime Error that popped up a zillion times and then the message pops up that no journal was found. Errrggg! So, if you come back, please, please, please leave a link. My sanity would greatly appreciate it. And, I will try my best to start leaving links when I stop by other people's journals. Although, I've always kept a link in my profile. I never left them in my messages because I didn't want people to feel like I was pandering for a visitor here. But, I'm all about making things as easy as possible so I'll acquiesce and return the favor.
Now, if someone could explain how to insert video into a journal. I would be ever so grateful. I checked out the message boards for journals and the computer graphics stuff and found no mention of adding video feeds to journals. I've seen other people do it so it must be possible. I think.
