DSL update

My router and stuff arrived yesterday. When I openend the box in which the splitter was in, I saw screws and a drilling instruction and panicked a little thinking I'd have to rip my old phone socket out of the wall. Then I opened the router box and the manual and saw that I'd been wrong. Phew. Relief.

DSL is supposed to be available from Saturday on. I noticed that my old Ethernet cable is too short so I need to buy a new one. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that everything will go smoothly. Problem now is that I'm supposed to show up at my parents' place on Sunday. I can already picture myself tapping my fingers, sort of like "Hi, bye, I can't stay ..." hehe. And my sisters wants to go shopping with me on Saturday. Hm. We'll work something out.

Also, I can't decide which display to get. I'd like a 19" widescreen. But I'm not sure which one. My co-workers say Asus displays are good value for money. But there's an Acer model that's cheaper. Argh. I hate that. I can't tell where the differences are anyway.

No, I don't know the book you mentioned. Will check it out at Amazon.
And no, I haven't really made any updates since I had Vista. I tried once to update my anti-virus software. Ha. Forget it with dial-up. There's always some update download going on in the background I think. Haven't managed to stop that yet.

  1. Hey, wait until you have DSL -- then the updates just keep pouring in... ;-)
    Oh, and then I would definitely recommend a full virus scan on your system, if you have been online with an unprotected/unupdated computer.

    Anyway: good luck with all the hardware and have fun with you new, fast internet connection!
