Not at all. The long part of my week is ahead of me. I have to visit
Stab City. Wait to see what kind of mood I'm in on Friday.
I did actually glance through the man's ifconfig output and what can I
say - it's ifconfig output, without any indication as to what's wrong,
or what the perceived problem is, or what is the observed behaviour vis
a vis the desired behaviour. So we're being asked to find the problem,
and then the solution. Actually, this could be a Cisco lab.

First aid - I've done the training course. I can help. I know about the
3 Bs. But I can't see from the patient which B may need attention.

if I had left toothmarks, they'd be visible. By all accounts, I started
at a very young age on a cousin's nose.
P.S. Fred - people here ARE more willing to help - if only they knew
what help were needed.
