I feel like such a dummy. I used to be an alpha geek, now I’m lucky if I even can claim the title of plain ol’ geek. My computer knowledge peeked around the cusp of the Windows98/Windows2000 change over. I never really learned anything about networking and it is starting to show.
I managed to get both computers to connect to the Internet through the router. But I can’t get them to talk to each other. I’ve turned on file and printer sharing, I shared the my documents folder on both machines, they belong to the same workgroup. A couple of the tutorials I’ve found on the web have mostly rehashed the same old procedures that come from XP’s built in Network Troubleshooter. I have run XP’s Network Setup Wizard, but always stop short because it looks like it wants to change some setting that I used to get the Internet sharing to work and I don’t want to muck that up.
About halfway to work this morning the Emperor clicked past the 34,000 mile mark. I wanted to say rolled over, but the Miata has a digital odometer so it doesn’t roll at all, it just blinks. The 3 nines change to zeros and the thousands digit advances one. I kinda miss the rolling action. Of course sometimes the zeros didn’t exactly line up nice until a few more miles down the road and that bothered the anal retentive portion of my brain. Maybe the digital is better after all.
