  • Mood:

frustration!

go into lab to work on robots.

no local network. hmmm.

notice that wireless access point got unplugged. aha. plug it back in.

after funny blinking lights settle down, try network again. nada.

reboot machines. nada.

get friendly neighborhood linux guru to help. he localizes the problem as being with the access point, but doesn't know what to do to fix it.

update: shoebox_bird arrives. she discovers that the wireless card inside the access point has been removed. neither of us has touched it. nobody else is supposed to touch it. the mystery deepens.

soon, the mass emails may begin. who took our wireless card? why? on tonight's episode of Mysteries of MITRE!

In the meantime, I guess I can code on the robot itself. Though that's annoying, because I can't test it with cables running out to monitor/kb/mouse, and the stuff I was hoping to write kinda needs the kb/display feedback loop.

note to self: judging from actions so far this morning, I definitely did take my drugs (couldn't remember earlier if I did or not). I actually *asked a coworker for help*. Without fretting for an hour first.

*poinggggg*
