Sorry I haven't posted anything in so long. We've been having a great Summer Reading Club, which means we have been very busy [ it's a quality problem really ].

Another problem we have been having here is a weak and faltering wireless connection, as well as a broadband connection that is less than stellar. Today though, we have had a major breakthrough!

Our local bloodbank, Lifeblood, has let us borrow a Procurve Wireless Access Point. We configured everything today, and things are finally looking up! Almost every laptop is working, those without wireless cards, we are going to either buy a Linksys or Belkin external card, or use an extra Switch that Lifeblood loaned us to go with the Access Point. So, we should have more things to post this Thursday [ or Friday unless I'm feeling very energized at about 9pm], which is the Orientation for our week long Teen Tech Camp. Then, we are going to try the Access Point on Tuesday for our Open Lab. This is a test run only, and we have to return the hardware after Teen Tech Camp, but another local business [ Semmes-Murphy ] is trying to donate a Cisco Wireless Access Point to Youth Services! Yay!

So, my lesson for today is always ask for help. There are people who would love to if given the chance.

Thanks,
Hillary
