omg. My immediate, overwhelming thought was just, “POOP.”
My router is dead. Long live my router.
It joins a list of other notable tech deaths this year, including such superstars as my modem (? - spring?, 2014), my old Mac user account (? - Julyish 2014) felled by a corrupted keychain, and the wireless headphones I use to watch tv at loud vols whensoever I please (Mar 2009 - Sept 2014).
Also dead and/or dying: my grandmother & my unemployment. One has been taken off life support after a surprise stroke and the other is my grandma. Just kidding, the other is getting snatched up by the US Postal Service so you’re looking at a brand new, federal employee.*
* Subject to a 90 work day or 120 calendar day probational period encompassing Thanksgiving and Christmas/Hanukkah/etc so that’ll be a blast and I guess I’m looking at a lot of 6 day weeks and hella overtime, beginning at 1600 today.
