Surfboard 4100 Modem, j'accuse!

So my slow internet problems were due to a cable modem with a known-funky chipset (when it comes to interoperating with Macs on a network).

For two years we've paid for the highest tier of TWC cable internet, and usually had max download speeds of around 200kbs. Then the last month or so it's declined down to about 20kbs for every download, which was ridiculously painful. As in, I could download stuff faster on my phone over cell data networks then I could at home.

That's when I started doing research and found out the problem. I bought a new modem, and we're getting 3mbs average downloads now, and scoring at 14mbs on the speed test sites.

SO MUCH BETTER. We could have had this along :/

CURSE YOU SURFBOARD AND BROADCOM, YOU INTERNETS SPOILING WRETCHES. YAY CISCO/LINKSYS CM100!

Very angry/happy now. I want two years of premium service payments back from TWC. Plus the $3/month rental fee for the TWC-supplied modem. But, OK, I no longer have third world internet access at home.

Auto-Tune The Jim

I just spent about an hour messing around with auto-tune, and let me tell you, even that can't save my singing voice.

I might try again later, but it was so bad I'm not going to post any snippets of my singing like I'd planned to.

So much for technology!

Physical Thing Is Physical

Akai APC40 is back ordered!

That is the problem with physical contraptions, as opposed to code/mental things.

Toys take weeks to arrive. It is the really frustrating thing about working with electronics, too, realizing 90% of the way into construction that I needed a 50 cent chip that would take a week to get here and cost $5 shipping. At least this is ONE thing one time, just back ordered until the end of July.

My wrist hurts from using the mouse, I can't wait to use this instead.

P.S. Paul zip up those sound files and email them to me :)

P.P.S. This is what the APC40 is for:
