The router is ancient, and the computer was literally falling apart. The computer is still under warranty so it will get repaired (or replaced) given time. The router should be simple enough to deal with, though I've never actually set up a router before since this one dates back to when other people lived in my house.
I actually have no idea what this will do to posting here.
It's possible that things will stay the same, it's possible they will get worse, and it's even possible that things will get better. I don't think the last one is particularly likely, but it is true that primary computer offers more distractions than secondary computer, which leads to the possibility that not having it will result in me writing more.
This post brought to you by secondary computer and Dunkin' Donuts free wifi.
(Statement that primary computer and wireless router broke down at the exact same time was not able to be verified. Readers are encouraged to decide for themselves whether the breakdowns were actually simultaneous or merely close enough to one another as to be noticed at the same time.)
