The power of the internet

Since I had virtually nothing to do the whole day, I decided to catch up on rereading some of the Sidney Sheldon novels that I have in my collection. Tell Me Your Dreams is not bad at all, so is The Doomsday Conspiracy and my all-time favourite, Windmill of the Gods. The latter is in fact the first Sidney Sheldon novel that I have read and I was so mesmerised by the storyline that I ended up reading it until I finished it at 4AM! Yes, that was how captivating Sidney Sheldon was to me. Even asking a question like “what is plastic surgery?” is nothing compared to Sidney Sheldon.

Let’s see whether I have time to reread the Stephen King novels that I have. Oh, wait…I can’t. I promised to meet Shin tomorrow.

    5. think about it. millions of computers with billions of micro-processor are connected through a global network.we call it internet. maybe it’s forming some kind of complex structure like the brain cells. i am not saying that robots will take control of the world. i am saying that maybe, with all these processing powers, internet is getting some kind of primitive consciousness.

    6. I am looking to move to the Philippines but I need to keep my job so I can make a decent living. I need a high speed internet connection and I can’t be having power outages all the time. I will be attending a lot of meetings online (about an hour a day) and I can’t miss them or have internet/power troubles because I will get fired. I heard that the only great internet connections are found in major cities but I don’t know which ones have a reliable power source. I would also like to know which of them are safe for a young woman.

      Thank you for your help!

    8. I live in an area with a lot of storms. The power frequently goes out during this time. I usually have to end up unplugging all cords (power, internet connections etc.) to reboot everything. I have tried the paperclip in the reset buttons but this doesn’t always work. Is there an easier way to reboot my system after power outages?

    9. I have a great Oak Desk, with hutch. When I bought it, it came with “plug in buttons” where I plugged in the Monitor, PC, Printer, Aux 1, and Aux2, and Master Power switch. Today, Aux2 was “sparking” so I shut it down. I need to find something like that, but I have no idea what that is called. I did searches on Six and One power strips, and that’s all I see online. I need another “fill in blank here”

      Picture http://twitpic.com/32s984 This is what I took out of my desk.
      When I asked my daughter, she called a “6 and 1 switchboard. It was a great guess, but nothing came up on yahoo search.

    16. Hi!

      Does anyone know by creating an access point using a USB Wifi gaming adapter (PSP/DS) allows you to connect and BROWSE the internet with a Wifi enabled laptop or PDA?

      Im asking this because some of the products says it can connect to other devices other than PSP and NDS. Like the ones on eBay.

      Thanks
