My oma may have had either a stroke or a mis-mix up of her meds...we don't know yet.  I just got back from hanging out with friends but I did go see her for about an hour before I did so...I am quite worried about her.

Yes I know we should have taken her to the hospital but if you know older full blooded german women: tough as hell but stubborn as well.

If y'all even suspect a stroke, you really oughta get her to hospital.  Time plays a major role in those.

This times a very large number.  Strokes are definitely not good.  My friend's grandfather had a stroke and even though he received almost immediate treatment he was unable to use the right side (IIRC) of his body without considerable therapy.  It also indirectly led to his death a year after that.

Hopefully it's just a medication mix-up.

My mom thinks it is because my oma has not been feeling good since tuesday and even though she is a diabetic she takes 2 kinds of diabetic medicine which is odd and may be the case.

For any interested parties, I attached a screenshot comparing the resolution difference between the so-called "Retina display" and the, uh, non-Retina display.  iPhone 3G running 3.1.3 on the left (scaled up using nearest neighbor from its native 320x480), iPod touch running 4.1 on the right (at its native 640x960), both in the built-in Clock app.

What I find amazing is that that little 3.5" screen is displaying a resolution that's exactly half of what I have on my secondary monitor.  It looks stunning in person.

And yes, I've been an iWhore lately.  I've wanted an iPod for years now...sue me. :p

Yeah, if there's some sort of med mix-up when it comes to diabetes it can lead to a lot of unpleasantness at the very best.  I know a few people with diabetes and it's amazing how drastically their moods and overall health appears to change depending on what they eat, what medicine they take, etc.  It's kind of a scary disease when you think about it; a critical part of your body just doesn't work and the only way you can remain among the living is to control it yourself. *shudder*

What the fuck am I reading? I haven't slept recently and that all made me laugh.

Also I'm looking for a new wireless router, and possibly a new wireless receiver (I'm like 90% sure my current router is causing most of the problems, but this Dlink dongle thing looks horrible and its software crashes half the fucking time I try to use it).

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833156249

Thinking of getting this, any thoughts? Should I look elsewhere for a cheaper/used one? Also I'm really tempted to search for a phone like splitter so I can run a wire to my room, but I'm unsure how to do that, plus it would be a massive pain.

Every TRENDnet product I've used has been garbage.  I've seen about three of them in the field and all of them had problems with random crashes, dropped wi-fi, etc.  That one got a good rating, but I'm still very weary of that brand name.

I'd go with either Netgear or Linksys.  I've had fewer issues with Netgear routers (though I'd avoid their USB dongles; their software is kind of annoying), but the interface on Linksys products tends to be considerably better.  The only real issue I've been having with my Linksys router (a WRT54G, I think it's a v6) is that it occasionally (and by "occasionally" I mean once every month or two) freezes and has to be power cycled.  Other than that, I've had exceedingly solid wi-fi despite having a decent number of wireless devices around the house (three laptops, two cell phones, my iPod, a DS, a PSP, a Wii, a PS3, and a printer).

Don't cheap out on Linksys though, I find that their really low end stuff is more prone to crashing than the WRT54G, plus the WRT54G has custom firmware, which doesn't work on some of their lower end models.
This is going in my sig. :)

I'm assuming this would count as one of their cheaper products? The rating doesn't seem great, then again it always seemed screwy to me.

When I was living in Maryland, my roommate and I had a WRT150N.  I don't know how the new WRT160N's fare, but the 150N was solid as a rock.  I never had that sucker crash and I never had any dropped connections.

I think that's the one I have now, which has been REALLY good to me. I forget what I had before, but it wasn't a WRT model. It was similar, but crappier, and has a habit of randomly dropping the connection to the modem, among other things (refusing to forward ports, etc. etc.) The one I have now looks like that one, and has been working flawlessly since we got it.
This is going in my sig. :)

Thanks a lot yall, I'll look into it depending on how much my current wireless router shits out on me and how my patience is.
