Dumb Fingers

Apologies for a brief partial outage. A combination of mental tiredness, dumb fingers, and a failed VPN experiment from a few weeks ago contributed to a bizarre sequence of events that created a weird ARP resolution problem within my internal network.

I was ready to yell at my stupid ISP – who are normally responsible for ridiculous crap that have in the past caused almost every kind of freakish outage imaginable – when the root cause of the problem reared it’s head.

Everything back to normal around 7:30pm AEST, after about 5 hours – I had to get home from work first!
