No Internet access

(posted from my iPhone). Pain in the neck. Maybe tomorrow? Check back.

UPDATE, Sunday: Airbook works flawlessly once it’s near a different router, so it’s that damned ip address that somehow changed on the original router that’s causing the problem. Knew I should have studied computer science and not philosophy way back when.

    Dude –
    Who is your ISP provider? AOL? Did you check to make sure your computer is plugged in? If that doesn’t work, stick a fork into the outlet to make sure you have power. Use a bathroom outlet, and stand in a tub full of water while you do it.

    Are you having firewall problems? DO NOT CALL 911!!! I tried that and they got mad at me for some reason. And they know jack shit about computers.

    Reset your routers. Check your proxy. You should do this at least once a year anyway when you are over 50.

    If none of that works, try paying your bill.
    You loser.
    Your Pal,

    Dude –
    Being that you were not blogging all weekend, did you give any thought to a web page redesign? I think you need to jazz it up a bit. What do you think?
    Why no pictures of yourself? I see your brother Gid has his picture prominently displayed as his masthead. And he has such nice yellow hair, and such a long, pretty tail. Did he get all the looks in the family? What color is your coat?

    Did the fixes I told you to try not work? Maybe it is not your internet service provider causing the problems. Maybe you are under cyber-attack from the GAR Evil Princess!! It doesn’t matter to the vile Evil Wench that no one actually reads this blog. It is all about CONTROL!! She wants the public dependent on the GAR as the sole source of information. Just like Barry and the Feds!!

    Anyhows, you should go down to GAR World Headquarters and protest. You will need a protest costume. What could it be? The GIANT Pink Vagina’s are already taken. Too bad, you would have looked good in that. So is the big blow up rat.

    How about… about…a DOORMAT!! It has the dirt tie in, symbolizes how the GAR Evil Princess and her house coat wearing, blue haired minions are treating you, and you can write “Don’t Tread on Me” on the front. Perfect, right?

    Where is GAR World Headquarters? Does it look like the Munster house? Send me the address and I will meet you there. I will be wearing my pimp suit so you know it’s me. Because I will probably stop by the J afterwards.

    Your Pal,

    • Error message say “Self assigned ip address 1.69 (etc). ” – have shut off computer, then router, then restated router then computer and all that was supposed to work, but didn’t. I’m getting ready to pass canapés for “Cliff” up at the Paul Ryan dinner so I’ll have to deal with this tomorrow. Should have some fun things to report Monday, even if I have to post from Starbucks.

  4. When all else fails, find the reset button on the back of the router. It’s usually reset into the case so that you have to push it with a paper clip. Push it and hold it in for a few seconds with the router powered up. The manual will describe the procedure. That’ll return everything to the factory settings. You’ll lose any changes you’ve made to the router’s configuration, but you should be back on line at that point.
