This is why I should never touch Windows machines.

So, I called 'rama support (aka, Aleris) and we tried fifteen zillion different settings to get the network on my XP station to work. Newp. No dice. It's somehow fubared. Like, we even reset back to a different day, I tried a static setting, turned off firewall, etc etc. Aleris told me to call Dustin tomorrow in case Dustin has any other ideas being the XP god, but it's looking more and more likely I have to reinstall the system.

I would like to point out

I HAVE HAD THIS MACHINE TWO DAYS.

I HAVE ALREADY FUCKED IT UP.

Now, if my FreeBSD machine weren't so fubared from a bad disk (I did test the network from it, btw.. the DSL itself is just fine), I'd be really amused at my Windows killing power. HOWEVER, since I don't really have time to futz with these things this week, it just means more obstacles for getting stuff done at home. Grrr.
