	Remember the problem machine can't even send *me* things over my 
LAN; what's more, I don't seem to see an app for writing them to a CD and 
sneaker-mailing them to myself.

	Hi-yi-yippee-ki-yay! I did ps ax|grep networkmanager ; got a 
process number; killed it; and wonder of wonders, it put itself online. 

	I launched firefox, opened a tab to weather, and got today's 
data ; so it really is online! 

	Many many thanks!!
