I help get the news out


Not through this blog, though. It turns out that an NPR reporter stationed here in Bangkok is a friend of a friend, and I got a rather panicked call saying she was having trouble getting her laptop to communicate, and her deadline was fast approaching. We met at a Starbucks, and I verified the problem. (Anyone know why a Windows computer wouldn't be able to get DHCP info? It would get to "acquiring network address" and then hang there.) After a couple of minutes of trying to fix that, I shared my Mac's WiFi connection to the Ethernet port and connected the two machines with a patch cable, and now you can hear this. Fun, huh?
