The weekend started with the swift pint after work on Friday turning into a sequence of pints and skipping the planned trip home before meeting up with Lee. This may explain why I could possibly of given the appearance of being drunk.
I spent most of Sunday morning drinking tea until I was in a fit state to return home and diagnose what was wrong with my PC. Unfortunately my shiny new machine is having problems seeing the LAN. I suspect its probably a dry solder joint on the Eth-Phy but having moved jobs I no longer have access to the sort of lab equipment to diagnose it. I'm waiting on CCL to get back to me with their policy on non-Windows installs on Hard Disks before arranging the warranty fix.
