Everything else went into storage. And quite of the few of the things that started out in that carry-on bag got mailed back to the States because I just got tired of carrying them. :P

What is this, a vineyard of wires, wires run amuck, or just your lazy butt’s way of not cleaning up your mess? No boss, its the result of your archaic, cheap ass not wanting to get with the times and go wireless. At least I did upgrade you from stone and chisel last year and got you a computer. One change per decade is my motto. Now back to work. Cheap ass. More like one change per century. Cheap and dumb. So what does that make me for working for him? At least I have a job.

Alright, I know they all said “Plug and Play” on the box…. I know you didn’t want to ask your kids for help. I know your wife bought all this stuff from Amazon specifically because they advertised as “Plug and Play” devices. I know that technically all this stuff works, but I feel I should mention that my daughter setup our Wi-Fi system in five minutes and configured our home network to media stream all our Amazon Content from a shared drive. At this point I’m not saying we ask her for help, I’m saying we tell her your wife asked….
