Moving Cont.

95% moved. Still have the fridge and the garage to contend with, as well as cleaning. The new house is a complete mess, but somehow I managed to setup my dvd player and surround sound receiver to watch DVDs. As opposed to finishing moving.

The cable guys came on Wednesday, from 3:30pm-7:00pm. I had them recable the whole house, and I tipped them (bribed them?) some money to lay cat 5 networking cable while they were crawling under the house. As a result, I have wire going to every room, in addition to my wireless network. The internet didn’t work so they had to come back the next day to remove a filter from a pole 1/4 of a mile away.

The ants are here in full force. I can’t put Toki’s food down without the ants getting everywhere. They’re incredibly efficient and wonderfully adapted creatures. With monsanto’s help, I am attempting to destroy them. If they aren’t gone by next monday, I’ll have the landlord call an exterminator.

Driver Ants are large and can be dangerous, they swarm severely, attacking openings in prey including nose, mouth and ears. They group together and sweep the forest floor in columns of up to 22 million, feeding on other insects as well as small mammals. They are the only ant known to attack people with the intention of food. Some people, generally young or infirm, have been unable to evade the ants and have died from suffocation.

    I know where you live, man! You are within 10 miles of the Alpha Troll, and I’ll be targetting your wireless router within a month…

    I don’t doubt it. I’m only using WEP encryption currently, as setting WPA on linux is probably a royal pain. I estimate about 5 minutes to crack the WEP.
