At this moment, I’m sitting on my couch, listening to some of Steve
Coleman’s music I downloaded, and looking at downloading the
Jabberzilla client. Truly a dorky evening. Must copyedit Moorcock
interview, must copyedit Moorcock interview…

Technology TopicDid a little futzing around with the wireless network just
now. I moved the access point to under my wife’s desk and plugged her
computer into the switch on the Linksys. We’ll see if she
notices. This is to put it such that I can get a good signal that
doesn’t drop from the couch. The connection was shaky with the WAP in
my office and this reduces the amount of wall between me and it from
the living room. I mostly use the laptop in the living room and my
office, and both have strong fast connections now. All good.

I’m listening to WREK streaming, a radio station sound where the
analog is converted to digital, streamed via MP3 to my cable modem,
then to my NetGear router, under the crawlspace to the WAP, converted
to radio, delivered to my laptop, and the digital finally turned back
to analog. Kind of involved for something that could actually be done
by a crystal radio.

I’m a little tired after our “school night” excursion. David Ryan
Harris (still no website to link to!) really put on a good show,
playing for 2 and half hours, mostly just him and his guitar. His
bandmate from Brand New Immortals joined him for a few songs
(including their one hit, “Reason Why”) but mostly Dave just rocked,
told jokes and otherwise held court. The place was packed, since
everyone that wanted to go to one and never did knew this was their
last shot. He talked a little about the White Dot, a club I will post
a little bit about later. He used to play the club underaged while I
attended his shows underaged.
