Netgear, Network, & New Toy
Pleased with myself - for not burning the house down or causing an electrical fire - I sat down with a couple of olives. Then on the spur of the moment, I knew what I had to do. I had to give it a test run with a real, honest-to-G*d, wireless device. An excuse, maybe, but I did it. Blame Staples or my co-workers who insisted this was the one for me. I think they were right.
I am the proud owner of the Kindle Fire you see here. Setting up was a little bit of a challenge with my fat fingers on the small keypad, but I got it done and downloaded 3 free books. It is a Birthday gift, so there is no 'buyer's remorse' here. I deserve a gift.
By the time I came up for air it was almost an hour past my bedtime and I hadn't taken the evening meds yet. Letting the Kindle charge, I went to bed. Sleep was illusive. I picked up the Kindle and just played around for a while longer.
Needless to say, I am paying the price this morning. Hell, I'll live! Besides, those books won't read themselves, somebody has to do it.
Happy Birthday (2 months early) to Me!
