Mailbag has a nerd partyCNET gets on the big TV, we help fix wireless problems and understand global politics, and one guy goes way too far.
Hello, everyone! I�m Molly Wood and welcome to the CNET Mailbag, the show where we read all of your emails, even the ones that make us really, really mad. But let�s begin with some that don�t! James writes in to say, hey just heard a cnet.com reference on the show modern family! soon you'll all be celebs I KNOW! That was awesome! I have to say that when we found out about this, um, CNET pretty much just turned into one big nerd party because WE�RE ON TV!! Yep. Nerds. Scott writes in to say I, Molly, saved his, um, bottom. He says: Dear Molly - I bought a D-Link router when my old G router died last weekend. Now, I'm a geek, but when my wireless G devices could connect to the router, but NOT get an IP address, I was stumped. � I was cruising CNET, and found your How-To video, "Advanced Wireless" �When you mentioned Dual Band routers, Windows clients, and WEP being a bad mix, it clicked! I went home, changed my router and all clients to WPA. BOO YAH! Molly Wood to the rescue! Everything, from desktop to Tivo to NetFlix to old Wireless Print Server, is back up and humming along nicely. You, Ms. Wood, saved me a lot of time, frustration, and potentially wasted money. You are a Rock Star! Awesome! If I can just help one person � I�m happy. And Al wrote to Tom to say: Dude thank you CNET, not only do you teach people about great tech devices but you're also explain in a very down to earth way what is going on with Google and China War. Thanks so much for being awesome and helping me personally understand what is going on. Al? You are WELCOME. Now, to some people who aren�t so happy with us. Pierre says: I can't believe you have the audacity to display a games your excited for this year link on today's front page, and then leave out God of War 3. That was either a conscience decision or a lapse, either way it is one of the most idiotic moves your editors have let slip so far this year. I mean You remembered modnation Racers ??? but not God of War 3??? you guys are seriously ridiculous Heh. I don�t know what happened with that list, but I just loved Pierre�s righteous rage. There are no fanboys like gaming fanboys. And finally, Quentin writes with the misleading subject line, �? For M.� Molly, Having watched you cover the CES, I must observe that the long hair and the bleach bottle just don�t do it. How many times do we have to review this. BRING BACK VERONICA! Quentin Quentin? Why would you even bother to send me that email? That�s just gratuitously dickish. And I don�t even think Veronica would appreciate it, because she? Is a nice person. Anyway, email me whatever you want at at Mailbag@cnet.com, or send your snail mail to 235 2nd St., San Francisco, CA, 94105. Thanks for watching, everyone.
