I'm really tired of this. I'm tired of people being dependent upon "my" equipment for services. I'm tired of wrestling with supporting a piece of hardware that's over a thousand miles away. I'm tired of paying $60 a month for a machine that crashes as frequently as this one does, especially when I can't actually do anything to fix it. Mostly I'm just tired, period. Maybe I should hang up my hat, get a HotMail account like everyone else and stop playing service-provider. I'll save money and have a hell of a lot less hassle.
In other frustrating but equally unimportant news: the guy over at Barrett's Antenna & Service still hasn't fixed my Onkyo receiver. He's done some troubleshooting, identified there's a heavy draw on the 12v bus, but doesn't know what's causing it ... so can't fix it yet. I also got a call from the siding contractor -- the replacement fascia for Z'ha'dum has been ordered but won't be here until the 29th of March at the earliest because of the unique color.
I think I'll go sit in the Expedition and listen to some Blue Man Group during lunch, or maybe go drive around town for a little bit.
