Follow-up

Remember how setting up the DSL modem took three and a half hours?

... The wireless router just took four.

On the other hand, that broke down quite a bit differently: Three and a half hours of fearful procrastination, 10 minutes of tinkering, and 20 minutes of securing sshd on my Mac and poking a hole in the firewall for it.

As they say, sometimes the dragon wins. ]B=8)
