This year’s All Faiths Ultimate Frisbee tournament — proceeds of which go to the local food bank — was awesome as usual. Well run, great spirit, and great food afterwards. Thanks to Sid & Josh and all their helpers for putting on a great event.
There were 8 teams that were made up that day and competed, and my team, “Teala Tequila”, went 4 and 1, losing in the championships to the very talented squad from team Black. I had an awesome time, met a lot of great people and got some exercise in too 🙂 Special thanks to Joy for driving myself and 3 other sweaty Ultimate players there and back and hanging out for the day 🙂

Airport Card: dead?

Pretty sure the 802.11b Airport Card in my G4 tower bit the dust last night. It matches the symptoms found here (“readHCFInfo:airPortExec returns error e00002e9” is printed to the console, “configd” pegs the CPU, and pulling the card fixes it) and here (one of several processes pegs the CPU at >= 100% use; System Preferences hangs when I try to access Network).
Which sucks, because I was just about to try out the Remote app for my iPod Touch.. blargh. It’s okay, though, it really wouldn’t have been anything to get too excited about, because I don’t have an Airport Express yet, to link my stereo’s audio input to what’s playing on my computer.
Going to check at work to see if anyone there has a spare Airport card kicking around they can part with, and, failing that, I bet they’re going for cheap cheap on eBay. Will report back here later.
Update, a few mins later: guess that particular card gave me service for nearly six years, on a daily basis. Not too shabby for something I bought used from eBay for $79.
