sea_cucumber has spod! It seems the secret to getting the two gizmos talking was powercycling both of them. That makes no sense at all. Still had to twiddle the routing, but that didn't need another reboot. Thanks go to izzy_stradlin for accidently discovering the solution.
We had GIANT pizza too. 1/2metre long and very tasty. They have gained a taste for posh wood baked fancy pizza. Also watched some of Rosemary's Baby. A clearly bad and wrong film, if only for the clothing and haircuts.
Am very sleepy. Will crash ASAP when/if I get home.
