Computer Saving Day

Today was Jason saves the day for his family and friend’s computers.

First I went out to my family’s house and got their iMac working again. That was fairly painless since I’d already started the previous day before leaving for more pressing engagements.

After I got done with the iMac I headed back into town to take a look at Brian’s computer. He’s never been able to connect at speeds greater that 21.6kbps with his internal modem. After fiddling with settings and running 3Com’s phone line test we determined that he has two problems. His phone line and the internal modem itself. So I’m not sure what he’ll end up doing.

I ate at Taco Bell twice yesterday, mainly because they’re having that Phantom Menace contest and I want to win. Yes, I know I have no chance.

The strangest thing happened while I was waiting in the drive through while getting my dinner at Taco Bell. I looked in my rear view mirror and the girl driving the car behind me totally reminded me of Mary. She had similarly cut red hair, and although her eyes and nose were in shadow her chin, jaw, and mouth seened amazingly similar.

Strange coincidence… or something else entirely?

While fiddling around with Kristen we discovered that I had managed to get a little sunburned yesterday during my 15 minute walk from Speedy Auto Glass back to my office. I was wearing a white t-shirt and the rays must have gone straight through to my shoulders and neck.
