I have internet! It was totally straightforward to set up, too; I put the start CD in the drive and it asked me if I would like English instructions, and then it gave me clear and comprehensive instructions, which worked. I know there are lots of people around here who get kicks out of doing everything manually and would probably find the CD unbearably patronizing, but fast and easy suits me very well.
This particular evening I have a lot better things to do than fiddling around configuring my internet access, because fluffymark is on his way here and I'm about to leave to meet him. But after more than two months internet-less there is too much squee not to post straight away.
