the good news: the internet man came, so i have teh webbernets at home...FINALLY!!! :D i was getting frustrated.
the bad news: i need to buy another ethernet cord so i can set up my shiny new wireless router. that's stupid...isn't the point of buying a wireless router so i don't have to use ethernet cords? apparently not...apparently it means i need two ethernet cords. ::headdesk::
sigh. time to go out and buy another cord. then i can come back, set up my wireless router, and continue my hardcore avoidance of studying evidence.
