The last days I was on vacation - I explored new worlds, saw IP packets going through my lines.
Just kidding :-)
The vacation has been last week and I met some guys (Cord, Bitkoenig,ToJe) on our more-or-less yearly party. After that, I made a visit of Duesseldorf and Koblenz, where I met Terry Pratchett (guess where my Nickname/login is coming from). Finally I went back home.
Yesterday I discovered that my friend tried to update his Orinoco Remote Office Router. This is good. After this, my line was down. This was bad.... Ten hours later my side of the ROR was updated too - and some hours later also the Laptop-Cards got their update (their Firmware wasn't good enough for the new ROR-Firmware...). Then I discovered that there are at least two drivers for Wavelan in the pcmcia-cs-stuff - one from Lucent itself, one written by another guy. And their config-files are incompatible. And as we are using encryption, this was fun... anyway, since this night I have the "free" written kernelmodule, looking through manpages, fiddling with configfiles - and shouting as I finally was able to go into the bath again with my laptop :-)
