Goodbye WEP, hello WPA!

I forgot to mention this a couple of weeks ago: wireless networking just stopped working on both the MacBook Pro and the old PowerBook G4. From memory, it went like this: wireless on the PowerBook stopped working, and as part of my preliminary debugging, I power-cycled the MacBook Pro to see if it would reconnect. It wouldn't. I've had numerous problems with WiFi at my house in the past, though I thought they were all behind me. On a whim, I flipped the router over to WPA2—both Macs reconnected. As an aside, my Palm TX would no longer connect, though, to be honest, I use WiFi on the Palm so infrequently, I actually can't be bothered debugging that at the moment.

  2. I'm starting to feel like one. To be honest, I suppose I post here more about the bad times than the good—but you've got to admit, I've been having some pretty bad times lately. Hopefully all that is about to change with the delivery of my hulking great Mac Pro.

  3. Oh, and by the way, all if this is your fault anyway. You just had to keep pushing...
