I still don't have internet at home (the man who built our house somehow managed to sneak past the inspector without installing a phone line, so we have to sue him to get the money to dig up a bunch of street to get one put in. Good times.) and T-Mobile doesn't work reliably inside at all (I'm very much looking forward to the CDMA Nexus One), so I've been having some serious contact issues.

We're still moving in. We built and filled another bookshelf yesterday, and we have 4 boxes of desks upstairs waiting to be put together. We're getting some thicker, derrière-friendly carpet installed next week along with a new cork kitchen floor, since I've decided that tile combines poorly with a propensity to put dishes near the edge of tables. I feel like the place is really coming together.

Back to work!

Re: CDMA N1: HELL YES.

Sucks about the wiring situation. Got any neighbor 802.11 to leech off of?

Not really. There is a FON network (http://www.fon.com/) that we can see, but it's only good for Google services (the system allows you to have 1 page accessible without a paywall, and the lady runnning the spot chose her blog, complete with embedded analytics and YouTube, so Google servers are usually white-listed). We're going to get Comcast as a stop-gap to Covad, but right now it's coffee-shops all the way.

From what I've heard, there's always something broken when you buy a house. I wish you luck with your lawsuit. At least you have someone to blame!

Nope, but I'm on their mailing list. I'm also on the list for unwired (http://www.unwiredltd.com)

Oh geez, so sorry for all the suck! It's like 2010 here and you can't get on the internet, wtf?! I hope suing works out, and I'd definitely feel sketch to the max in your situation, like, "well hmm, what *else* did the fucker who cut corners building my house do?" I hope that this is all and good luck with everything!!!
