between intermittent outages, i had 5 computers sharing my dsl at home yesterday. woo hoo! all it took was a dsl modem, a dsl router, two hubs, an airport, and one 30-foot ethernet cable (to get to the basement through the laundry chute. :)
among other things, this enabled me to archive all the old useful work info off of “Phoenix” my office pc from my old downtown Oakland office, without tedious ZIP disk transfers or worse. it was also just kinda cool for the heck of it.
