There's a big blue snake slithering through the dining room!

Last year I bought a Lombard PowerBook, the last laptop Apple made without AirPort support . Since the iBook came out I've yearned to be able to surf the net from my living room or bedroom -- after all, what's the point of a portable computer if it's tied to your desk? Everything I do on computers is tied to the 'net in one way or another, so using a disconnected computer is pretty impractical.

Well, tonight I solved my problem, sort of. I bought a 100' ethernet cable that can reach my living room, bedroom, and the patio in the back yard from my office.

It's not pretty, but it works. :-) Finally I'm getting my money's worth for this laptop!
