This makes it official [Jul. 18th, 2003|11:04 pm]
We arrived in Albuquerque on Monday after a very long drive. willowisp wrote a good summary of the trip itself and our first few days here. This week has been an absolute madhouse of unpacking, errands, wayfinding, and exploring. I've been so tired every night that I haven't had any trouble at all getting to sleep.

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.

cable modems

Hello, Andy. I'm not real knowledgeable, but here's my two cents.
My setup here - 4 computers, 1 wireless hub, 2 network hubs, a router, and a cable modem. Everything is driven off the router - I use DHCP, but also have the IP addresses defined. You can do this with the router. Maybe that's the way to do it.

Came down with a terrible cold as soon as I returned from Houston. Other than that I'm good. THings are starting to go better at work - we hired an art director who comes from Nike Sports (and other things) - very creative guy, starts August 4th. He's lost 150 pounds since he was laid off from his last job (jumped for dot-com dollars and 2 businesses fell through). I like his belt - it wraps around him almost to the back again. It's a badge of honor.
See you soon.
