Had my co-conspirator round to work on Project X today, and it turned out to be surprisingly difficult to share data between two computers attached to the same LAN. I'm guessing that I need to frob some ZoneAlarm settings, but nothing obvious made a difference in the first five minutes so we just resorted to sneakernet. I also need to sort out a longer piece of CAT5 to lower the probability of me either
- a) tripping over a network cable, or
- b) garroting myself with a network cable
- c) both of the above simultaneously.
