Vampire Electronics

For the last couple of days, my wireless network has been rather unreliable and I've been trying to figger out why. It turns out that an Apple Airport base station which flidded out a couple of years ago, and which I never unplugged because it was buried amidst a tangle of other cables, has spontaneously risen from the grave and is now working.

It was breaking shit because it was on the same IP address and announcing the same SSID as the machine that had replaced it as my wireless router.

How odd.

(If you object to my use of 'flid' above, please read 'spaz' instead)

Not familiar with "flidded", I must use it more often now. Could you provide a few more examples of usage..!

Strange how events from the past can come back and bit you in the arse when you least expect it!
