Layout. Mrf.

You know, at this rate (0 wpm, 0 lpm, 0 thoughts-per-min), the base layer for my layout will never get completely written.

The job's too big. I'm too disorganized.

I have no interest left in it.


I ought to reapply the old one, mess with the code just enough so my journal looks presentable. After all, I look at it every day. Making it look good would probably make it easier to read and generate feelings of happiness. Hah. Maybe. Not.

Yeah, whee, sarcasm. Sleep.override($body); . . . .

Wireless - Mixing 802.11b and 302.11g base stations,289483,sid40_gci1116650,00.html?track=NL-351&ad=525548

Both 802.11a and 802.11g offer data rates up to 5 times faster than 802.11b. But 802.11g sales leap-frogged the slightly older 802.11a, due to backwards compatibility with legacy 802.11b products. Unlike A, which occupies the 5 GHz UNII band, B and G share the 2.4 GHz ISM band, letting G APs simultaneously communicate with B and G stations.
However, as many WLAN owners have noticed, there is a price to be paid for backwards compatibility: the presence of B stations can degrade G performance. To get the most from your 802.11g AP, it can be helpful to understand the "protection" mechanism that enables B/G coexistence at the expense of performance....

(Mostly posted for Lady, who mentioned something 'bout wireless being slower... I know you've got multiple networks in your area - although I don't know if this is the cause of your problem - it's certainly a new bit of information for me.)
