Not at home

This is an email exchange I had with a roommate yesterday while I was at work.


What’s going on with the net at home? I have no


I know for a fact that I don’t have any type of
sharing software open. So its not me.

start > run > cmd > hit ok

type ‘ping 192.168.[x].[x]’

tell me what happens.


I’m not at home, but I will print this and bring it home with me.

  1. As the unnamed roomate in this conversation reproduction I am unsure if Brad posted this to show his lack of common sense in this instance for telling me to do something when I had just said that I had no access or if I’m an idiot for trying to get tech support when I’m not even home. I’ll go with the latter and say I’m an idiot.

  2. I actually put it up for both reasons. My immediate reaction to the conversation was admittedly, the later, however, the more I thought about it, the more I realized the obviousness that you wouldn’t be able to email me in the first place. I found it amusing from both aspects though, so I posted it without comment for the reader to decide what they thought.
