The Cause of and Solution To

The past couple Thursday’s I’ve had trouble accessing some websites on the Rising Star WiFi. Some load just fine, while others (including wordpress) do not. The past couple weeks I’ve just hotspotted my phone and loaded it that way, but today I decided to try and figure out whether the issue was on my computer or their router.

Given that I have no trouble on other networks I was 60/40 their router. After spending the last 45 minutes trying to figure it out, I’m now 80/20 their router. Can’t rule out the possibility that I don’t have something configured exactly right.

Ever since I can remember someone somewhere has been complaining that X technology will ruin Y aspect of society. It is always made to seem unique. It is always made to seem as if we have never encountered this problem before. It is always made to seem as if this is the end of days. Couple that with millennials ‘killing’ every industry they come across and it certainly seems as if the end is nigh. Just search X destroying society. Then X saves society.

If the Romans had the internet I’m sure you could have looked up myriad articles on how this crazy new invention called ‘plumbing’ was going to sicken and kill people, and end the water carrying slave industry.

Yet we soldier on. Inventing yet another technology to save us. And then another to save us from that one. And yet another…




May the gods have mercy on the ‘right-eared

I've traveled the world, but the exploration never ends. I've run marathons, but the race is far from over. I've completed life goals, but strive for more. I have questions with no answers, and answers to questions I've yet to ask.

Where are you going? Where have you been?
