Last weekend saw the release to the iEther of another Brierly Hill 90210 podcast. The recording went relatively smoothly (“relatively” is definitely BH90210esque) but once recorded, things got interesting.
Since moving to the new house, my office-come-studio is on the third floor. This being a Victorian gothic revival piece of architecture built in 1890 (we had a history lesson at the weekend), it’s not exactly “wired” so my internet connection is wireless to the FiOS modem on the ground floor. My Dell laptop for work sits about 4 feet away and works just fine but my Mac G5’s connection is, at best, shoddy. Buggered if I could get it to stay connected long enough (or fast enough) to upload to the .Mac server.
This resulted in the early-morning necessity of digging out a loooong network cable, hooking up to the back of the Mac and throwing the other end out of the window. Reeling it back in and re-hurling a few times eventually cleared the flat tin roof just outside the window.
