Well, I finished getting my network, well the wireless part, together and working. I need to finish hooking in the rest of it.
It is rather convenient to have a wireless enabled laptop at a dinner party. Mine was actually used to by some canning stuff.
Then again, I think that one really big use of the internet is to settle disputes. It's even more convenient when you can look up odd trivia while watching a movie from the comfort of your own couch.
