I love the Internet!
Absolutely, positively, adore it.
Back in September last year I posted one of my usual "link Bitching & Moaning" diary entries. In it, I happened to mention the trouble I'd had with the embedded Intel PRO/100 Ethernet adapter on my new development system. Today I got an email from the South Pole(!) from someone having the same problem and no Linux geeks handy to help, but who had found my diary entry. [For anyone else having problems, the driver can be found here or by simply going to the Drivers section of Intel's website]
I love the Internet! :-)
