So here's the scoop.
I spent a good chunk of Sunday moving out my gaming rig from the storage bin into my room. Not an hour ago, I hooked it all back up: monitor, keyboard, mouse, and speakers. The only thing missing right now is internet.
I am trying to remedy that right now by attempting to piggyback Internet to the gaming rig via this laptop and an Ethernet cable. And, well... It's pretty slow going. Learning how to set up a home network is hard. :/
