Internet fail

Got a pop up notification that my laptop needed to install some required SFDC updates. Fine, whatever. Did so, then it asked me to reboot when convenient, so I figured that would be fine.
Windows boots back up, and suddenly the UI is screwed up and, more importantly, I can’t connect to the internet anymore (it doesn’t get past the “Acquring Network Address” part).
So I bring the laptop to work (it’s raining right now too, argh) to file a helpdesk ticket and leave it here for tomorrow. Boot it up to reproduce the symptoms so I can write a better ticket and, lo and behold, it suddenly works. UI is fixed and network acquiring is happy. WTF.

So yeah, if it’s something about my home network, then I won’t be online for the rest of the day (and possibly Monday) until this gets fixed.

Edit: Fixed now, it seems. How incredibly odd.

  1. You’d be surprised at how many problems magically disappeared upon an attempt to reproduce them in front of me during my 2 years on a help desk.
    I’m not even being sarcastic when I say that, I think there must be some kind of quantum phenomenon to explain it :-P
