I don't have a static IP address? :o)

Just got back home from a gig today to find the box had locked up again
with 2 icmp redirect messages on the console and an ATA timeout thing

Apr 23 20:54:28 bone kernel: icmp redirect from =>
Apr 24 19:13:21 bone kernel: icmp redirect from =>
Apr 24 23:49:35 bone kernel: ad2: TIMEOUT - WRITE_DMA retrying (2 retries
left) LBA=1663

Just like that... i'm not sure if it's the timeout that caused the lockup
this time or not. I thought swapping the network cards had fixed it..
well.. I dunno, maybe this is something different?
