so we now have two running puters in the house – the old one is now in the living room & has been designated the little guy’s very own computer. now, my first stop of the day is always email & a few weblogs, so morning computing is something my son is very familiar with. this morning, after we got him dressed, instead of tuning in to nickelodeon or disney channel, he turned on his puter.
today the adventure with ethernet hubs begins. hopefully (i think i figured it out) the reason the dsl modem failed to see the network adapter is that i had first switched the dsl over to multiple computer support — i think it was trying to look for it over the doesn’t-exist-yet network. i hope. that would make it easy – just plug, set up DHCP, & away we go, theoretically.
in any case, the boy requested a piece of danish (hasn’t started asking for coffee — yet), & sat down at the keyboard. poked around a little: ?mommy? i don’t have the internet yet?? poor kid. i hope i can get this network thingy running today.
