My home system has been plagued by a set of self inflicted configuration problems, which has resulted in not being able to post reliably to this blog or to read my favourite stories on other peoples'. I don't think I should beat myself up too much though, as the incorrect settings were applied using information from my errant ISP's own support pages.
If you need something doing, it is better to trust your own judgement and do a bit of digging under the covers in the murky world of router set-up. Needless to say I seem to have restored my home networking to happy harmony and service will be resumed shortly.
After that, tackling global warming or world peace should seem like a walk in the park.
