We had a bad storm Friday and lightning hit here or at least close and came in on the
cable and burned out the modem, my router, and the integrated LAN on the Dell and
on the Acer.

Helen got a new modem from Comcast at their office yesterday and I got it running but
neither the Dell or the Acer could see it. I hooked it up direct to Helen's new netbook
and got on the net a little with it.

We went to Best Buy a little earlier today and got a new router and a lan card for the
Dell to replace the integrated one that went out. I ran the setups and I've got the Dell
and the emachine (wasn't hooked up when the lightning hit) both online now, first time
since Friday afternoon.

I just didn't say anything when Curly wanted us to go to Best Buy and get what I needed
to get back online. I'd already ordered a new router which can be a backup now and a
USB lan adapter that just plugs in and doesn't require installing. I guess I can still use
it for the Acer. I had quite a bit in my gift accounts and Walmart had added the Windows
7 Home Premium for $49.99 and I just preordered one of those as well.
Less than $100 left there now, I probably should have ordered another copy of Windows 7,
it'll be selling for $119.99 after this special. Oh well.
