Someone tell me why my un-Techie spouse thinks a Mac Airport will be a better wireless router for our all PC house. His RoG laptop's connection is slow when at the other end of the house with the door closed - duh. Did he drink the Kool-Aid?

Thank you for confirming he's an idiot. :-D He said this after looking at our CenturyLink provided modem/router with disdain thinking we could replace it - uh...can't?

In any case I have some power lines sitting by the router so he can hook those up & we can put a second router back there which will also get us Netflix & other smart TV/BD player features working in that other room.

It's been a while since I've found something to promote. Some amazing & spooky imagery in the trailer for this "Lovecraftian" Oregon film being featured at the Montreal ComicCon Horrorfest.

If anyone knows what's wrong with Chrome lately, please tell me.

For 2-3 weeks now I've been unable to use Chrome as a browser. Every tab, every page loads extremely slowly IF it will load at all. It's the same on other computers in my home as well. It still runs okay at work, however. I've been through every fix I can find on the web including uninstalling/reinstalling, clearing temps/caches/add-ons, etc. I also found several posts by other people with the same problem saying some recent update to Chrome was responsible.

I'm sad that Chrome is messed up right now because I really like having my tabs/etc synced between home & work & I'm just not in the mood to set up Firefox completely to my liking. I have no idea how to know when it will be updated again to see if it's fixed as their updates are transparent or at least I never noticed it update before.

Yeah, I did that a while back & none of my Chrome tabs are going over 160,000k. The results of my speedtest.net when not within 10' of the modem are concerning though, considering I pay for 40mbs so that on wireless I was getting 20mbs. Now I'm getting 0.5 - eep! But before I changed the DNS I couldn't even run one.

I just caught up on about 5 days of G+ posts since my actor/geek kid is having trouble adding being a 7th grade student to his schedule so I've been playing homework Nazi  But, when he is studying or on the road to work/auditions we've been enjoying +The Doubleclicks  so I thought I'd just drop this here for y'all.

Story
Tagline
Sci-fi/gamer geek, mom, ex-Theatre artist & event professional, singer.
Introduction
I was a huge geek before geek meant anything other than some 1950s dude with coke-bottle thick eyeglasses. By the time high school was underway I loved sci-fi, fantasy, medieval history, Shakespeare, every school subject but math & PE, music (I was in choirs & band), Monty Python, had joined those crazy theatre department kids, and was playing D&D (White Box edition) with my school's Tolkien Society - yes, we had a Tolkien Society @ my high school. So I've always been a gamer of varying kinds and a total nerd, but, eventually, with a cool sense of fashion.

And now I'm raising a really cool boy who is lucky to live in a world where all that geeky stuff is pretty cool. Plus, he has computers & robots to mess around with.
