It started at 7 am

but I didn't get online for the dog and pony show till after 8. Couldn't handle what would have been 8 hours of online conference calls with one 15-minute break and one half-hour break, especially since I had other work to do and am only supposed to work 8 hours a day.

Boss canceled one of the meetings, so there were two half-hour breaks.

After the meetings (ended at 2:00 or so) I picked up a prescription at Kaiser, then went to Fry's for a router and some network cables. Went to the office and did some work/play with the system, chatted a bit with a couple of co-workers.

Home, set up the router, I'll wait till tomorrow morning to test the VPN connection since everything else looks fine. TiVo found its wireless address immediately, which was a problem actually because I hadn't even changed the DHCP addressing scheme, so the address it was assigned had to be revoked twice before I was able to assign it the one I wanted. It's a D-Link N/gigabit router, white with pretty blue lights. Very pretty, which is what really matters, right?

Plans for tomorrow:
Dentist appointment
Work (have me a doc or two to read)
Stay out of grocery stores
