Indeed, I was quite tired. Went and passed out straight away after posting the rant Sunday night. On Monday I got into work to find out that the security people were complaining about some services running on one of our lab boxes. Turns out a config we'd been running for years (before I got there, at any rate) was a problem for them, and a change to our router config by the network guys let them see it. Well, long story short, I spent a long day finding an adequate solution for AIX packet filtering, installing software, and implementing rule sets. By the time I got home all I wanted to do was watch Everwood and go to sleep.
...My internet connection seems to have gone to complete shit. Thanks, Comcast! More rantage later, perhaps.
