finally! my home desktop is net enabled and my dvd player is upgraded!

after ages of deliberation, finally got a wireless adapter - thus
internet enabling my desktop. Thanks to this piece of toy, am wide
awake until now (its already early morning).

The adapter is already heated up by now - having been run for at least two hours non stop. ;)
Acid test for NetGear!

with the adapter, i was forced to get home a new DVD player, thanks to
my old one, which kicked the bucket y'day - and the dealer mercilessly
diagnosed both the SMPS and the board (dunno what is there inside the
box apart from these two components and oh yeah - the drive!) have died
- by reasons unknown.

tells me that it is a very very unlikely possibility to have both SMPS
and board being fried unless the box was hit by a lightning!

Bad timing for me! altogether it was an unexpected / unprecedented spend of 5k in a day!
