God bless computers...

I don't like computers much, basically because they're a strange, complex arrangement of resistors and capacitors that magically bring the wonderful world of international news and pornography into my room. How do they do it? I don't know, I've never had much of a mind for it, and taking a course in digital logic didn't help much. I think it only confused me more. Anyways, unpredictable things scare me, and my computer tends to be a little unpredictable. For example, yesterday. I just moved my computer to another room, and set up a wireless router, and magically, everything worked. Now this morning, I couldn't connect to the internet. So, I focussed all my computer problem solving skills and past experience in fixing computer issues and I rebooted it. That didn't work. Anyways, to make a long story short, the wireless receiver was picking up the neighbour's signal, as, apparently, they have a router as well. Thanks to Scott and Julia for fixing it, as I had no idea what to do. Problem solved, internet works, and if I'm ever about to download a whole ton of crap, I know I can just connect through the neighbour's internet.
