Stayed up till midight or so trying to get a D-Link DWL-G650 working on the laptop. It’s looking like I’m going to have to return it. Not sure what I’m going to replace it with; the selection of Wireless Ethernet cards that support WPA which are supported out-of-box under even the most up-to-date linux distros is pretty slim. Using an older card with WEP security is unnacceptable, since it’s been shown to be easily crackable with readily available tools.
I hate linux, and I HATE the fact that there’s nothing better available without shelling out for a Mac.
So yeah. I’m in a lousy mood. It’s a beautiful day, but nothing I turn my hand to seems to be coming out right.
Something snapped in me when I went into that extended depression. Now whenever things start to go south I feel myself slipping back into it, wanting to stay in bed, wanting to run away, questioning the worth of everything I do. It’s lurking at the periphery of my life, waiting. Yeah, I got myself out for my morning walk today, but only after laying in bed for an hour, not wanting to move.
What’s the point?
