I'd be curious to hear how iPhone people like the S3. I need to upgrade (still on the 3GS). Only thing is that I'm grandfathered in on unlimited data and that remains if I stay with iPhone. But I really don't use my phone that much. I use my iPad more.

I use Afrin at night for the worst 3 days of a cold. Makes the mornings much easier with fewer headaches.

Oh, and good morning. Hope the sickies are feeling better.

Major congestion all of a sudden. Ugh! I thought we bought an extra Afrin the last time the crud hit. Apparently, I used it all up! I'll have to cope through the night and then run out during the day at school tomorrow.

Is there any reason why I couldn't run a second wireless router off an ethernet switch.

Current setup: cable modem to wireless router. Wireless router plugged in to ethernet switch, which goes throughout the house. So, couldn't I plug a 2nd wireless router into the ethernet switch as long as it has a different IP address?

edit: I would love to get rid of the old router, but, for some reason, that's the only wireless system my wife's work computer will connect...

If you put the second router into "access point" mode where it doesn't do any NAT then you should be ok. So then you have modem plugged into router #1. Router #2 plugs into router #1 along with whatever else, but only serves as an access point, with router #1 assigning all IP addresses.

Especially since it was supposed to be Klez and not Klex on the first. I was dazed from lack of food!

And you can still get a lump of coal for your wedding present!

A couple of days ago we got a case of Scott Harvey Zin delivered. Scott and Carla took care of us in a "no ship" state and gave us the woot price and a good deal on shipping.

Alas, the wine had frozen. Five bottles had protruding corks, including some through the foil.

We got an immediate response to an e-mail. I don't think Carla could have taken off her jacket before she replied. They are going to replace it all. "Don't want to risk it". Though this time, we are smart and asked to hold shipping until March.

What great treatment!! First, when they went out of their way to offer us a great deal, and then to back up a weather caused problem so quickly. We actually felt bad that it got damaged after how well we were treated.

I know I don't expect this kind of treatment in general. It seems to be the norm for the regular winemakers that offer here. But I don't take it for granted.

Scott and crew being above and beyond is so not a shock to anyone who has ever met them!

As an aside- when are we coming over, for the Glögg/Gløgg?

Total bummer! Scott & Carla & Co are all awesome! I wonder when they sent it that it got stuck in the deep freeze? Whatever happened to those "refrigerated" trucks that also insulate against the cold?

They only use those for Summer Shipping.

And the Super Bowl is delaying some shipments for the New Orleans area too.

Back to CyberPub crud: I hope that the peeps who came up to Buffalo #10 are feeling fine and did not catch what I have! I went to school yesterday. Big mistake: eyes were watering, sneezes came frequently, nose was either totally stuffed or just plain running. NOT nice. No meds touched it. It just came on all of a sudden. Later, about 10 pm, a fever hit and so did the chills--101.6. I took some ibuprofen and off to bed I went. I am so glad that I bought an electric blanket a few weeks ago. That really helped a ton last night! By 3:30 am, the fever broke. I am home today. Slept until 10:30 and am just taking it easy. I plan on going back to bed at some point.

I hope I will be able to garner enough energy to attend a gala fundraiser that our dance studio is involved in to benefit Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. I have so been looking forward to this--it's kind of like a local Dancing with the Stars--there will even be judges for the celebrities. One of the judges is the guy who judged our dancing last year.

Ours was direct from the winery using a third party shipper, since CT was no on the woot list. So likely just a regular UPS truck.
