we're chained

I also still have ethernet cable to pin up, and a long extension to the TV to make. We'll need four sockets near the TV now and maybe another few later, as well as the ariel, and naturally we have decided to put it against a wall with none. We also need four sources of power near the phone (for radiophone, answerphone, hub and modem), and of course there were none, so all four power leads are currently running under the door to the kitchen. All this has decided me that all houses built under my rule in future should have a power/data strip running around every wall that you can jack into at any point (and of course all phone, network and TV should run down the same cable). Also every electrical device should run off the same voltage as said strip and not require all those chunky and subtly different adapters which don't-quite-fit on the multiway. My hub doesn't even say on it what voltage it wants, and guess who didn't lable which adapter belonged to which device before she moved? Now I'm going round labelling them with a silver pen to prevent a repeat performance...

Also neither my LJ client nor Explorer will recognise the internet from this computer, while Mozilla is fine, which is weird. Ho hum.

And am now late for work. More rantage will have to wait.
