Kitty is having a baaad

Kitty is having a baaad gear day. So it’s a week late, but I finally decided to dig into various boxes and get my DSL hooked up. I’ve got a router that my boss gave me and I should have several static IP addresses in my Qwest kit to get my server going again. Problem the first: My boss, may he rest in peace after I get hold of him tomorrow, didn’t give me a router. He gave me another DSL modem. Problem the second: no static IPs. Well, I figure what the hell, I’ll put Qwest’s modem in my workhorse computer and see if I can connect dynamically. No go. Just out of sheer curiosity, I call tech support. Turns out I’m not signed up for static IPs at all. I spent 30 minutes on the phone with Qwest getting everything just right, and they fucked it up. They fucked it up so bad I can’t connect at all. I’m on my stupid laptop dialing up through work.

So tomorrow I get to look forward to calling Qwest and signing up for the service again. Oh, and buying a router, which I hadn’t planned for so I may have to wait a while. The more I think about it, the more pissed off I get. So I’m gonna go think about something else now.
