Blog uploading

So I’ve been writing entries on my laptop, but had not yet figured out how to get them uploaded to my site. My host has cable internet, but when I plugged his network cable into my laptop, I couldn’t get a connection, probably because my MAC address doesn’t match or some nonsense. And I couldn’t find a wireless connection. This morning, I finally got around to wandering over to the local internet cafe, got a mocha and a croissant, and hung out here for an hour or so with my laptop uploading stuff.

Of course, I may have pulled another stupid Perlick trick. I got here, and knew that they had WiFi. But my laptop wasn’t finding a network. I thought, “Huh. That’s odd.” Then I look down and realize that the wireless was turned off on my laptop – I’d turned it off before getting on the airplane in San Francisco in case I had wanted to play with my computer during the flight. Why I thought that would happen on a red-eye flight is beyond my current comprehension. I turned the wireless back on, and four networks show up. So when I go back to my apartment and find out that there’s wireless available there, and all of this could have been avoided, I’m going to feel pretty damn stupid. If there is a wireless network over there. Which there probably is.

Even if there isn’t, though, this is a pretty cool coffeehouse, so I may just end up spending mornings over here anyway.
