Re: Even to this day...

Or you're remotely doing some networking, forget which router you are connected to, and change the address on the wrong bit of the network 8-O Luckily managed to avoid that myself, but had to avoid smirking as I watched the consultant setting up some new routers do exactly that. As it happens, he was able to change the Ip address at the local end of the link and reset it, and it was only 10 minutes drive away anyway - but still good to see others make the mistake so you can file it in your "things to avoid" list at the back of the mind. Learn from the mistakes of others, you won't live long enough to make them all yourself !
