We got our network working!
I've been unable to use our printer from my computer, or access files on Chris's computer (meaning that we'd have to burn BSG episodes onto CDs and then physically copy them onto my computer...) for months now. Actually, ever since we got back from The Flood of '07.
And then (mostly because Chris downloaded MST3K* and wanted to be able to put it onto my laptop, and then hook my laptop up to our TV), we fiddled around with a bunch of stuff that I swear we've done before, and this finnicky, high-maintenance network finally gave in and started working again.
Oh yeah, and my Dad got out of the hospital today. I think that deserves a smiley-faced emoticon: :)
* Chris and I have a trade-off this evening. In exchange for his making me watch Mystery Science Theater 3000, I'm making him watch Newsies.
