Just an epilogue to this. He tried popcorn, but still lost it. Then we had a
series of breakthroughs yesterday.
1. My virus loving (expletive deleted) finally realized he had one of his
virus pals bound to explorer.exe on one pc here, which made a nice mess of
2. Popcorn seemed not to work on the gaming problem, but ping -a -t did the
trick. He still gets cut off the odd time, but not as much.
3. There was another access problem for another kid: He was trying to get
onto wormnet for a game of Worms, and failing. Out came Ass sniffer, which
sniffs your own ass first, and tells you your dynamic IP. Entered that in the
network config, and he was flying. Close Ass sniffer quickly!
FWIW, Ass sniffer takes this dynamic IP; It converts this to a http:// form,
which you copy & paste into an irc channel, and tell someone to have a look
at http://yourIP. They get "Server not found", and you get them :)
