After Kellie's recent post in this forum, I decided to re-read this thread. It looks like I have an interesting couple of days ahead trying to get myself up and running in time from next Saturday's 10k. I had a vague recollection that I had found the whole thing quite frustrating. It's only now that I realise quite HOW frustrating.
I haven't used my laptop much recently since I got my iPad. I loaned it to my son for a project he was involved in and I've recently got it back. When I tried to get online I was unable to do so.
So my first problem is to get back online. This may require waiting until tomorrow as I think my ISP's help desk is not available on Sundays.
Next step after that is getting RowPro to work in the house and making sure it is fully updated.
Then, I have to see if I can get a signal in my gym in the back garden. My iPad can just about receive a signal if I place it in the corner nearest the house, but it's not all that stable. I was able to tether my iPad to my iPhone a few months ago, but have not done so recently. Does anyone know if it's possible to tether a laptop to an iPhone? If so, I may be able to solve my connectivity problem by placing the iPhone at the back of my kitchen and using it as a relay to my modem.
If that doesn't work, it's down to my nearest computer store to see about getting this plug in device that was referred to in one of the earlier posts in this thread.
Failing that, I could try moving my erg to the patio and hoping that, for once, our notoriously fickle Irish weather doesn't decide to have a downpour during next Saturday's scheduled 10k.
My last option is to move the erg into the house, but this may lead to divorce proceedings as I tend to sweat a lot when erging.
