Bizarre failure mode for my Mac - Journal of Omnifarious

12:40 am - Bizarre failure mode for my Mac

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Today my Mac exhibited a very strange failure mode. It refused to talk on it's Ethernet port and almost completely refused to listen. It was the strangest thing. After I rebooted, it went away. And the wireless connection worked just fine.

This mattered because at home I set things up so almost no networking works except over an encrypted ssh tunnel when I'm wireless. So I generally prefer to be connected with a wire if I can.

Maybe it's just showing you what an independent thinker it could be if it wanted to be. ;^)
