I guess that now I know who’s The Boss:
Miss Awesome says it’s her office now, and now that I’ve been demoted I’d better hop right to it and get that pile of notes on my desk cleaned up. Not that she’s tyrannical or anything. She lets me drink liquor and smoke pot at my desk and I can take breaks whenever I want them, so I guess I can tolerate doing what I’m going to do anyway because clutter makes me crazier.
Until today I’d never bid in an eBay auction — I’ve just never wanted to accept the risk that a thing I could buy immediately at an acceptable price might be gone by the time the auction I might not win ended. But today the ethernet switch that hooks up most of my office network punked out for the second time so I thought I might give it a try. I scored a nice, brand new, Netgear 48 port modular rackmount switch for twenty bucks, $35 by the time shipping is added. Not bad, not bad at all. And it comes with an extra gigabit ethernet module already installed — MSRP for the module alone is $130 so I guess I did okay. 😀
It’s important to have lots of spare ethernet ports in the office now that Miss Autumn is the boss. She’s much bigger on toys than I am.
