In other words, send money and stop questioning

Boy, it sure is hot and humid these days. It rained heavily this afternoon though and was still raining lightly in the evening but what I'm seeing again and again is that some parts of Northern NJ still haven't solved the flooding problem. So, as I discovered when I went out to Paramus this evening, that causes the Garden State Parkway to get choked up for very long stretches.

Received the Anthrocon Art Show packet today. I have two panels in the general section so I'll have to start matting some art. Hope I still remember how to work the mat cutter.

The Netgear MR814v2 wireless router has a problem. It just stops working after about 6 hours of use. Can't ping the router itself or anything else on the local network. I checked some online forums and found that it is not unusual (as Tom Jones would say) to have problems like that with this particular Netgear model so I'm going to have to send it in for exchange or repair.

I'm seem to be chewing through Enrollment Directors at Capella University at a rapid clip. One of them has left the school so another one has been assigned to handle my questions. So once again, I explained that there is a need for a demo courseroom because the software is new and wouldn't you want to see if it works before shelling out $1,700 to sign up? So she replied, and this is the entirety of her response: "To be honest with you I would be more focused on my education and not so much concerned with what type of format it was being delivered in." That is sound advice, of course, but in this context, it doesn't help and it misses the point.
