ex machina

i can feel myself getting close to setting up an 802.11 network for personal consumption and oreillynet keeps giving me less and less of a reason for being lazy [not that that ever really stopped me].

Getting Started with Lucent's 802.11b Wireless LAN Card:
"These uber-cool devices operate in the deregulated 2.4-GHz band (just like high-end cordless phones). They work best with direct line of sight, but will operate through walls, windows, ceilings, and just about anything not made of metal. And they not only work as advertised, they work well.

Of course, you've got to get them installed first, which is unnecessarily quirky (and in some cases, outright frustrating). But fear not, we'll brave the dark forces of product re-branding and misguided Microsoft plug-and-pray together!

First, I'll tell you what equipment you need: a gateway and a wireless LAN card. Next, I'll explain how to install the drivers for the card. Then I'll focus in on installation on different platforms: Windows, Mac, and Linux. Finally, I'll talk a bit about security and encryption."

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
