And now, after nothing more than a full powerdown (which in hindsight I should have tried first, rather than spending a couple of hours downloading a Ubuntu livecd), Khaos is working again. My computers do seem to live up to their names: Achilles had a fatal flaw in the design, Hector killed off Achilles, Odysseus was a right pig to get set up, and Khaos is... chaotic. The laptop seems to behave, but then again it's a ThinkPad.

What's the laptop called?

Now I feel justified in the fact ours are mainly named after rocks. (Amethyst, Opal, Saphire [sic], Emerald, Topaz and Lake (I did say "mainly"). The old network was called "Quartz", the new one has a name provided by sky)

At university it was named Wanderer, but that was always intended to be a temporary name. At the last reinstall I finally named it Aether.
