DSL is down (hence blogging on Advogato). Pipex won't do anything until I've verified that the router won't bring the link up when it's the only thing on the line, and with a different microfilter. What fun.

Hamsters
In addition to having to do that tonight, we also have to sort out the living room, because last night our female hamsters escaped (only a few days before they go to pet shops annoyingly). So for, goodness knows how much of last night we had eight hamsters loose in the house. We managed to recapture them all and re-cage them this morning, but the living toom is a real state. I have a certain amount of grudging respect for hamsters that manage to open the door of their cage though.

The annoying thing is that if Tia (mother) hadn't been running across the floor when I went downstairs, we probably wouldn't have noticed, would have just assumed they were all asleep (as they should be at that time of the morning).

Hacking
Work on GST::Network is progressing slightly more slowly than I had anticipated, just got to iron out some probs in the profiling at the moment I think - the tool SEGVs when it's run. When I dump the output to an XML file, it all looks fine apart from the <profiledb> section, which to me looks like a bit of a giveaway as to the source of the problem.

America
Seems like the various strands of the US government are getting themselves into a real pickle in the 9/11 commission. Somewhere in there you might find the truth, but I wouldn't hold your breath.
