Airport Roaming

Tonight brought some time to get the networking situation at the home office fixed up. The network now consists of two Airport base stations. One is an Extreme base station and one is a dual-ethernet base station that used to be at the office. The performance is good and it seems to work well. Best of all it seems to have eliminated problems with connections dropping here and there for no reason at all. The Airport Extreme station has an external antenna to help it rise above the interference in the room.

35K and going

Good Morning from 35,000 feet. I love morning flights across the Rockies. First the airport is empty when you arrive so the trip through security is much faster than later in the day. Once you leave the ground the air has not yet had the time to heat unevenly so the chances of turbulance in the air are greatly reduced. Finally there are beautiful sunrises like this morning. The clouds to the east of the Rockies were packed in tight. Like a knife edge the mountains cut the clouds and the only vestiage of such a complete carpet on the western side was a hazy morning dew. (I didn't bring the CF reader with me in the cabin so the picture will have to come later).

Mouse faster than a keyboard

This Ask Tog column has some interesting points about mousing being faster than keyboarding. I definitely fit the model of the people described in the article with my steadfast belief that the keyboard is faster. I wonder if there is research outside companies' R&D departments that might shed light on this question.
