12:20:2002 Entry: "Ann : I did it!"

I did it!

I figured out how to hook up to my G4 and log in from my iBook and access my other hard drive.

Wow. I never thought I'd be doing this.

I amaze myself.

I'm thinking that maybe in the future I can even hook up my old Laserwriter 4/600 printer (which is a GREAT printer) to my G4 via a local talk to ethernet adapter. It's currently on a my first computer, the 75/7200. I have to sneakernet all my files I want to laserprint. It's a pain. Then I can donate that old system (That is, if the schoolkids in this town aren't so spoiled that my old computer isn't GOOD enough for them and the Madison Public School District) and free up some space on the table.

But right now I need a rest from all this networking stuff. I need to vegetate on a beach somewhere or do something so very banal and primitive, no tech knowledge necessary.


I'm very amazed and impressed too! Cause I really don't know what you're talking about, I hardly know what ethernet is ;)

Well, I can't explain it the way a technical person would, but it's a way for computers on a network to connect together to talk to eachother, share files.
