Cable internet is awesome!

So after waiting for the allotted 4 hours for my cable guy to show up…..he did!  So now I have a good connection to the internet again!  Yes that is exciting news.  Setting up my wireless router ended up being a whole different story all together.

To make a very long and frustrating story short I would just like to warn everyone away from the dir-615 wireless router from D-Link.  Now this is not me judging all of D-Link’s products because honestly this is the only one I’ve ever used, but this router is a pain in the ass.  I’m not a computer wizard but I can hold my own when it comes to setting up basic stuff like installing a video card, adding ram, and other such simple stuff.  But after 2 hours of messing around with this router I gave up and just went and bought the netgear “little cheapo” and while its just the standard g wireless network at least it works.

In celebration for my new found internet I got Hot up to level 46 in the hour I played today so the official count is just 4 more to “awesomeness”  as a buddy of mine described mangle.  I was hoping to have been 50 by now but moving into a new apartment has set me back abit.

In other awesome news I’m probably going to be talking about the Beta now!  That’s right, after getting the new internet up and having my girlfriend be amazed at my technical skills she checked her email and her new account had a beta key waiting in it (sure its not technically mine, but seeing as how I introduced her to the game and nearly had a seisure at the thought of making a deathknight in the next couple of hours I claimed it).

So while Hot will still get leveled and be 70 before wrath hits theres the distinct possibility that some beta musing’s might find their way into the blog now! Woot everyone loves new stuff to play with!
