Catastrophe narrowly avoided

While hoovering this morning (or should that be Dysoning?) I appear to have broken the plug on the phone extension, so the study phone was dead. Not a problem - I just unplugged the extension, and put the hallway phone directly into the socket.

Except that also on the study extension is the router. Argh! No internet!

A quick rearrangement, and the router is now in the hallway. Thus, wireless is back, meaning that the MacBook is usable again. On the other hand, the router is now out of RJ45 range, unless we want to rig our hallway with death-traps, so the desktop is still an oversized, dusty paperweight.

Tomorrow's mission: get another extension cable.
