This place doesn't feel much like home right now. That isn't especially surprising: we lived in Chapel Hill for six years and a week, and we've been in Albuquerque for four and a half days. It will take a lot of getting used to, but I do like it.
Anyway. Back to the point. We've been eating out ever since last Wednesday when our entire life was packed up and shipped off. This gets old in a hurry even when it's good restaurant food. Tonight Cat made buttermilk chicken and we had our first home-cooked meal at our own table. Life is much better.
I'm tired enough that I'll leave it there and go get some sleep. Before I sign off, I have a question for people who are savvier about cable modems than I am. I have two computers with separate IP addresses. I'm not running NAT. It so happens that the addresses are different enough that to get packets between them I have to go through the cable modem and out onto the Internet, which is stupid considering that they're about ten feet apart. Is there a standard way to work around this? One machine is running Linux, the other WinXP. I can add a host route to the Linux machine easily enough, but the poor Windows box gets confused when I try it.
