What I Shed Today

lightening up a little at a time

snaky tangle

on October 2, 2014

I like snakes … except for cable snakes. Capulum datum were virtually unknown as recently as a hundred years ago, but in the last few decades have spread quickly throughout the developed world, till they have become quite common and frequently invasive. Look for them in disorderly tangles under desks near computer equipment. We’ve had a terrible infestation in our home office. But our wireless carrier just sent us a state-of-the-art wireless router to help resolve our WiFi calling problems.* I’m happy to report that, along sorting out the snakes, I’ve also shed some connectivity problems today. But back to the snakes—installing the router provided a nudge to confront them in their den and charm them into better order. Less clutter yields a lighter heart!

Though the untrained eye might be deceived, this is a straightened-out nest of cable snakes.

*I feel a slight disquiet at urging you to bring something else into your space, but if you’re in the US, T-Mobile is your wireless carrier, and you have a phone that supports WiFi calling, I recommend you hit one of the hot pink stores or call customer service to ask for a TM-AC1900 CellSpot. The only cost to customers is a $25 deposit, which is refunded when the device is returned. These are $200 dual-band wireless routers with advanced features, but T-Mobile is essentially giving them away so they can shift traffic onto cable rather than having to carry it over the air. I don’t work for T-Mobile nor do I have any control over any advertising that may appear on WIST … I’m just grateful and glad to hold my thumb up about this cool product.
