Another New Arrival

Read the comic below. (Click on it for a larger version) I'm pretty sure I am that guy. I'm always trying to jury rig something or automate something or just plain get myself into trouble.

So why do I feel like him today? Well, remember a few weeks ago when I wrote about our new DVR? Well, it is super awesome, but I thought it would be even more super awesome if our DVR could be accessed anywhere in the world. I had some fun money saved up so I bought a Hava Gold. It was supposed to be a simple hook up to the network. I won't bore you with the details but I'll just say it wasn't simple. I even recruited my dad who came over for like 4 hours on Saturday. The end result is that I bought a second router for our network and there are now 2 wireless networks running in my house but one of them allows access to the Hava. Which means any computer in our house can watch our DVR. I haven't yet setup access outside of our network but that is my next project.

This whole story leads me to the real question. Why do I even do these things? After spending like 5 hours trying to get it to work, Robyn suggested that I just send it back. I couldn't do it. Once the puzzle has been placed before me it must be solved. Now that the puzzle is solved I should probably go to bed. I hope you enjoyed the comic. If you want to see our DVR it is now available wirelessly throughout our house. Come check it out.


  1. Hey, I thought you weren't allowed to buy anything for a month!

    And I love that comic.

  2. and you NEED that don't you. ha ha

  3. Kayli, don't worry, I bought it before the purchase freeze. It's just taken me a while to get it to work.

  4. I'm glad you have fixed the problem (sort of). Now you can pay attention to me again! Ok, I never felt neglected, even if I didn't get why you HAD to figure it out.

  5. Hey, Jeff. I have a few techno things that need fixing at my house. If you run out of "puzzles" come on out to Calif.

  6. I'm glad everything works now. Life can go on again!!
