Post 1299A - An Unusual Number

Hi, everyone.

I don't know how many of you care, or notice, but the numbering of the posts got messed up sometime ago.  This is only the 1298th post, but it "should" state 1300.  The only way I can have post 1300 be the actual 1300th post is to have a couple of posts with funny numbers. 

I flogged the blog to CBC radio today.  They have a feature whereby they are interested in hearing about interesting blogs.  Despite this blog being so damned boring it hurts, I decided to tell them about this blog anyway.   I mentioned the various interviews I've done with radio folks, and that may help my case.  We'll have to see.

Spent more time than I should have this evening, trying to figure out why my linux computers won't load certain websites.  Fiddled and farted around with various linux settings I'd never heard of before, to no avail.  Tried the same websites on my one Windows box, and ran into the same problem.   Hmm.  Then, just for fun, I jumped off my existing wireless network and hopped on  another open network in my neighbourhood.  Then, I tried one of those websites.  It loaded, a bit slowly, because the signal is much weaker. 

I am guessing there is a DNS setting in my wireless router I have to play with or something.  If anyone has any suggestions, let me know.  But, I'm getting closer to allowing Patricia to access bedbathandbeyond.ca . 

We have to keep our women happy, don't we?

It's good for the health.
