Note: Need to do my NFC predictions before Sunday (when the NFC actually starts playing).
Server Problems (link): Triump The Insult C was Triumphant! His suggestion ended up working like a charm. I first logged into roadrunners chat server (since its the fastest). Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure its outsourced to india. Here's what the chat was like (the guy I was talking to was "Ali A"):
Me: (give info out, phonenumber, addy, name, etc..) Could you please tell me the IPs assigned to my cablemodem?
Ali A: sure just go to http://www.somesitenameIcantremember.com/
Me: No, you don't understand, I know the IP I'm currently on, but the other IP assigned to me is on a machine that has a broken keyboard. The IP changed on a power outage and I'd like to know the new IP.
*10 minutes of complete silence*
Me: Here, lemmie tell you the situation. I have a linux box that I use for ssh'ing into for DB transactions and such. The keyboard port died, but it wasn't a problem, because I ssh into it and never really have to use it locally. I just want to know the IP to ssh to.
Ali A: Well that is two problems. We don't support home networks and we don't support linux. Do you need anything else?
Me: Ok, listen here Alia... I'm gonna put this in simple terms since I'm obviously confusing you. Two IPs are assigned to each cablemodem. Can you just tell me the two IPs assigned to my particular modem?
Ali A: No, they are randomly assigned by the DNS Server. Is there anything else I can help you with?
Me: Alia, you know I'm going to break out the phone, call customer service where I'll get my answer in 10 minutes, right? You are completely useless and I'll be sure to mention that on my call when I get my information.
So, I call RR customer support. I tell her my situation, she hands me to level 3 support who tells me my two IPs. We chat for a while on how I have my linux server setup and stuff (he's a cool guy). I mention the worthless 'Ali A' (I actually said it right, this time) and he says that the chat level guys are only level 1, so its only helpful for people that have trouble setting up their printers. I thank him, and reset the dyndns to the new IP.
Unread: Still chugging, albeit slowly. Safety Cap, I'm not making a prototype to work off of, I'm making a prototype to aid me in making use cases (which will then aid me in requirements. Just going backward a bit). Anyhow, I'm looking into finding an artist to make the graphic, cause I got a good idea for it (an unread book (spiderwebs and such) with a zombie in the background). Anyone have enough artistic ability to do something like that??
Weekend: This weekend will be housework, unread, and yardwork. Have to split up my parsley and basil. They are killing each other in their pots.
Em: WTF is up with the latest JE? Is that real???
 Dunno how they view email and webservers on the home service, so I just didn't give out that info.
