This And That

I had two simple goals for the weekend: Get a decent haircut and set up a new LAN in our1 apartment. As you know I failed miserably with the latter thanks to Linksys. My theory is that Cisco take all the hardware that fail internal testing, slap a Linksys sticker on it and sell it to the common man. If the quality of the Cisco equipment is the same as their Linksys gear I’ve been struggling with you should sell any Cisco shares you might have right now. Actually, you should sell them anyway before the American economy goes tits up, dragging the rest of us down in same black hole.

That’s my macro economy commentary.

As for the former, getting a decent haircut, I think I did OK. Not that anyone have noticed. That they haven’t is a bit strange, because I basically look like another guy when I cut my hair. Even though it seldom takes any more than ten to fifteen minutes, getting a hair cut is one of the most boring things I do. I don’t like doing things I find boring, so naturally I don’t do it too often - if I’m not mistaken I’ve had four haircuts over the last twelve months - and when I eventually get a haircut, it’s not that much hair left.


Now for something completely different. I’ve got 6 invites to Pownce. It’s probably one of the most useless sites I’ve ever seen, but I wouldn’t be that surprised if it gets as popular as Facebook. Is that fad over, by the way? Drop a comment if a Pownce invite will make your day.

  1. It struck me that I always wrote about “my network” and “my apartment” in the previous entries, but it’s strictly our network and our apartment since Gine is also living here now. ↩︎
