My attempt to make it to my 10 acres in Terlingua Ranch and make a go of living on it. From the start it hasn't gone good at all, but I'm hopeful things will turn around!

Skinning the Cat
Or did it skin me? I got tired of not being able to use the laptop at night to cut down on battery drain so decided to skin the cat and go back to the old technology I used back at the BBMI. In this case I used another satellite dish aimed at the legion with the laptop in front of it. That allowed me to be able to get online with the internal WiFi card rather than the WiFi key in the dish outside. This left a LOT to be desired, but it was better than nothing. Shortly after I set this up it dawned on me that there could be an IP conflict between the WiFi card and the WiFi key so I disabled the internal card and what do you know? That was the problem. Now I'm back online with the dish and WiFi key again so could get that damn dish out of here.
