HELP!
SO I brought my lap top to work today becasue I need to go to SU & an online cafe after work today to do some more grad school stuc( more on that later) but right now my lap top is only serving as a big Mp3 player. For two weeks now Cathy's is the only place I can get an internet connection. I can't get it at Online Coffee Co, at my parents house or here at work. I connect but then get booted off by fucking microsoft with the line "windows was unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network"
So Christine sent me some links

I got as far as I could to change the damn setting but it's all greyed out and says...
"IEEE 802.1X authentication can not operate on peer to peer (ad hoc) networks for which data encryption is disabled."

Now what do I do? I re read to forums but at this point it's kinda greek to me. Also my windows XP thinks I'm an idiot and doesn't let me change things (and I kina am an idiot becasue this totally stups me). It also looks like someone with this proplem re-installed. I don't want to do that, really. I'd loose everything. Also my windows is updated at Cathy's on Wednesday. WTF? HELP! HEP ME!! I don't have an IT department. I need one.

I'm pissed here's some IT crowd hilarity in the meantime...Please HELP.

That sucks about you computer, but that clip made me smile in memory of 6 months I worked in IT.

You should get a Mac.

I highly recomend the IT Crowd. Good stuff.

I know my nerd cred would go up if I got a Mac but I can't afford one. Though when I upgrade to a new laptop I'd like it to be a mac becasue I'm anti vista.
