It seems that I am only allowed to have one net connection working at a time. I have two, you see, specifically so that when one dies, dvorak and I aren't screwed. And this has worked out well, recently, as the DSL seems to go down with startling frequency, and every now and again the cable modem freaks out. So now I have screen sessions set up going across both net connections, just to keep me happy. Fneh.
