Adventures in System Administration

A few months ago, mid-October probably, my laptop (or 'Mercutio' as I call it) stopped being able to access the internet wirelessly. Since I'm always at my desk anyway and my dad refuses to let me use my sisters old laptop, I just made do with what I had and used an ethernet connection. Well, I discovered today that there was never anything wrong with my computer, turns out that the internet works fine, I'm just an idiot. You see, Mercutio has a little has a little switch on the front that turns wifi on and off, not knowing this switch was there, I'd left it off for months and months. A cursory examination of my laptop and a flick of a switch and wifi works perfectly again.

I cannot brain, I have the dumb.
