just checked some support sites, and the netcomm n600 doesn't support fttc. poop.

iinet replaced the TP-Link modem that was giving me trouble.

this morning, the replacement started doing the same thing.

i am reasonably certain it's not a problem with my machine or cable, because the router DOES work if you reset it a few times.

gonna call them again on monday and ask if i can use the old Netcomm N600 instead. they supplied that when i was on ADSL, and it worked.

feeling kind of embarrassed for TP-link at this point.

mood:

be me
new router connected to NBN
turn on computer in the morning, won't connect to anything
reset router, it works
next day same
post about it on TP-link support site
24 hours later, suggested fix
(set DHCP lease renewal to "Permanent)"
looks like it's working
mfw

so, NBN now. that was remarkably painless - my ISP sent out a router/modem with my personal information already entered into it, including the account password. not sure if that's a good idea.

Axle Rubix from Karmapirates' "Dynamo" looks a lot like Mike.

what's up with that?

I can’t tell you how damn fucking funny this is

I’m in a library and this is

How they feel about it

Game of Thrones (non specific) 

me: wow, i feel like garbage. headache, sore eyes, dizziness -

brain: you had a flu booster shot literally half an hour ago.

me: when were you going to tell me?

brain:

i might give mastodon a rest for a few weeks, or at least until people shut up about the god damned Sonic film.

my idea: like Fantales, except instead of the lives of movie stars you get examples of command-line options for ffmpeg.

>see Libreoffice is on mastodon
>resist the urge to ask them if it can apply styles to anything smaller than a paragraph yet

somebody hold my hand, i just swore in a Slashdot post and i don't know what they're going to do about it.

Went to the RTA this morning to transfer ownership of a vehicle.. got there at about 11:30, and, my god, we were there for...

... about TEN MINUTES. they were quick, efficient and courteous. haha!
