Broadband restored at home. It was the upgrade to XP Pro that broke it (and just about every other USB connection on the PC).

I think I need to remove the USB connections from the PC, remove their drivers, and start again. I think. I also think it might be the 4-way USB hub that isn’t helping things as the USB connections listed in Device Manager add up to more than I actually have (now there’s an annoyance, why doesn’t it show WHAT USB device is connected, rather than just listing them ALL as “USB device”…)

In other news, I got a nice little package from Amazon yesterday, containing Raging Bull on DVD (Special Edition) and Alec Guinness’s Biography. Don’t ya just love late birthday presents.

And finally, we spotted snow on some cars this morning. SNOW!!
