It seems the more nefarious elements of our digital world I mentioned in my last post took up residence in my hotel last night. I'm still not convinced they are evil, they may merely be clueless. Whatever they are, they are running a non-authorized DHCP server that is completely disrupting service. I have sneeking suspicion the level 1 and level 2 tech support people aren't necessarily helping the situation.
My room has been down for 12 hours and counting. Sometimes the port appears to be disconnected, other times I can't get a DHCP address. Even the static IPs the helpdesk gave me didn't work.
Ah, life on the road. Gotta love it.
