Sofa King Wee Todd Ed

Guess where I am? Sitting in front of LittleBrother's(10) school and thanks to my technological wizardry, I am online! I knew there was some way to use my cell phone as a modem for the laptop and I finally got it working. I bet I wasted a good 3 hours last weekend trying to get this shit going and during an IM conversation today, I asked Bekah if she used her phone like this. She said no but that her husband does but he "had the software" for it. That reminded me that perhaps I should install the disk that came with my phone. All of the directions I'd found online were assuming that you had already completed the basic step of installing the stinking software. After that, it took just a couple of minutes before I was online.

Go me! I am so pleased.

Okay, I don't have anything more to say today but someday I might have a blog post that is dying to get out and you all can be dazzled by it then!

DUDE. Make sure you aren't going to get charged on a per k basis (vs per minute). Data charges can get HUGE, fast... if you're not on an unlimited plan.

Rich Championable - I do have the unlimited data plan. I learned early on what kind of bill you would get if you weren't.

Good call on the unlimited plan. If you had a network card and the school has a wireless network you might be bale to thieve some of their bandwidth. Good call on no in front of the school HNT pictures!!

That's way cool. How is the speed compared to regular dial up?

Go you!

I still can't even program my VCR dammit!

bekah said...

Oh, wow. The title totally says it all.

Sara Sue said...

LMAO!! I had to read the title out loud to get it!!! You rock!

Chickie said...

The Phosgene Kid - I'm to cheap to get a network card but I'm pretty sure the school doesn't have wireless anyway. Hey, HNT in front of the school pictures! That had never crossed my mind....and it never will again. I like my life as a not known sex offender.

Midwestern City Boy - I haven't had dial-up in awhile but it's about the same, as far as I can remember. I wouldn't cut off my cable service and just use this though.

Scott English - VCR? What a VCR?

Bekah - Yeah. I have my moments.

Sara Sue - Sometimes, if I've done something dumb, I'll look at Sweety and yell, "I am the Sofa King!" and he knows exactly what I'm saying.
