The Sunday night report

God, what an insanely huge collection of crap. I never realized I had that many boxes of useless stuff in the closet.

First of all, apologies to all of you who showed up expecting everything to be ready to roll. I really should have spent more time boxing things up, because as thorough as I thought I'd been, I wasn't nearly as close to being finished as I thought I was, and so a lot of people sat around waiting for things to happen that should have already happened. Still, after much sweating, straining and somewhat fewer vile oaths than one would have thought, we're MOSTLY moved out. Major thanks to redmartel, stuckintraffik (who I thought were going to kill themselves hauling big & heavy things), tjstriker, tokenfanboy, jamestrainor, the Berkner brothers, Joella, and if I missed anybody you still definitely have my gratitude.

At this point most of Scott and Melody's stuff is gone, which leaves just a few things to be thrown into the demo dumpster that management has so kindly left where we can get at it and a few more things to be stuffed into the Kia and brought over to the apartment. There are very, very few things left for phoenixalpha to bring home to her duplex - couple of books, some barbells, plates, bowls and silverware. That ought to be all wrapped up by Tuesday night, which is when I'm turning in the keys and saying the hell with it. I am confident that we'll be all cleaned up and squared away by then, though I still expect to get wanged on the deposit.

In other news, I got the broadband switched over in less than a day (like, about 5 minutes) but apparently I'm going to need a router of my own since the laptop's not okay with just being plugged into the cable modem. More money down the tubes.

What brand of modem? Most should be able to plug directly and act as a router in their own right.

I'm not sure what brand the cable modem is...it's whatever TWC is handing out to their broadband customers. Right now I've got the laptop set up to run off the WiFi card through Melody's router, but that's a temporary solution since she'll be wanting that back once they get DSL set up there.
