Cable Modems and Family Reunions

Unloading the van wasn’t fun but I did get my exercise in.

After that I decided to set up Joi’s cable internet connection. That was an interesting experience! Insight Broadband doesn’t make it easy to run a hardware firewall on their cable connections and we all know just how long an unprotected Windows PC is expected to survive when directly connected to the internet. I finally had to admit that I was beat and call Insight. We got it running after a little fiddling around. But I still had to tweak the DNS servers that they used because they’re just too flaky.

After that we headed out to pick my mother up from the airport. She flew in to see Reese for the first time and brought some coffee syrup and clam chowder with her. Yum!
