So DNS is being all wacky these days. I was just blaming it on how, oh, the DNS for my ISP is being all wacky. However, I am beginning to think that, yeah, might need to fix the IPs on ye olde home routere; they're probably well out of date. However, that's gonna require password recovery. Hard way? Break in* and party in ROMMON. Easy way? Call former roommate and see if he remembers it (and hope I didn't change it in the interim. Which is possible, and puts us back in the Hard Way.)
* - and what the fork is the break command for Hyperterminal for Windows XP? None of the other ones listed on the Cisco site seem to do anything.
