It's a very strange thing. Once I'd left Chez Dave on Saturday night, his DSL stopped working under Linux. now, I suspect it might be related to the kernel update that APT sucked down for him, but I'll check it out on Wednesday ahead of cell group.
One thing I didn't mention on Saturday, because I was hoping to have photos for the gallery was the fact that I've had a haircut. The ponytail has gone, it is no more. It's been replaced with a rather nice short hair do which apparently makes me look "younger and slimmer" (not my words, nor those of the hairdresser). The photos should be in the gallery tomorrow - I forgot to bring my USB lead for the camera with me to work today, so in the meantime, here's one I took with my webcam (the online version of which is offline along with the DSL). Compare with what it looked like beforehand.
