    Well, my DSL konked out today. Phoned tech support, and I get the "No, everything is good at our end" spiel. And of course, they won't support routers, so I have to unplug router and set up a single computer. Still doesn't work, I get an error 678, remote server not responding. Despite this, the tech STILL MAKES ME reinstall my network card driver, and drive a different cable. Well, my cables are differing lengths, depending on how far the computer is from the router. So I need to rip out a wire, just to appease him that it is not the cables fault (I had already tried two!!! )

    Anyways, after unhooking the router, disconnecting every computer and network wire, I get to speak with someone higher up the food chain. Guess what, he runs a test on my line, phones back 2 minutes later, and says, oh yeah, we figured out the problem AN HOUR AGO!!!!!!!

    ARGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHH!
    Although, as you can tell, I am up and running.

    My ISP I think is getting a bill?? What do you guys think?? My going rate is only $150/hr, so a steal for them really!!!!

    Anyways, that was my day. Looks like Wise is celebrating chinese christmas or something, cause looks like Santa came a calling.

    Wise, an antec eps12v powersupply, what is special about that?? And klipsch speakers, I am jealous!!! Why not the 4.1's????????

    Anyways, kids going to bed soon, should go up. Have a good one wise, bwm. Hope all is well.

    the EPS 12v has a 24 pin atx connector as opposed to the 20 pin on most standard atx suppliues. it also has an 8 pin 12v connector and the normal 4 pin 12v connector. it is primarily for boards that require the extra power (the iwill mpx2 is one such board)

    300+ is why i didnt get the 4.1's....tho i really wanted them. if i got those 4.1's i would not have been able to buy everything else i needed. besides, my place is kinda small for surround type speakers and i dont watch movies on my comp.

    have a good one nuke!
    hmm...

    Don't ya just look foreward to that initial call, when ya almost always get a tier 1 support type person. Hell ya charge the ISP. You'd probably earn more money than 150/hr for them anyway.

    Have a good one, nuke
