Anyway, today.. Did stuff at work.. Laptop that wouldn't go online. After messing with network components and the winsocks and all that crap for what felt like half the day, I tried manually giving it an IP address, and it.. worked. I still don't know why it wouldn't get an IP from the dhcp server, but I got it to work. I am not satisfied. But at least I learned to try manually assigning an IP sooner in the process.
Despite getting off work half an hour early, it was already dark by the time I got home. >_<
The ice cream van came by today. I chased it down the nearby cul-de-sac, cornered it and purchased some ice cream. Got another stamp on my stamp card. ^_^
watched another four episodes of Inuyasha and episode 6 of Bleach raw. good stuff.
