Frozen Twiggy

I'm somewhat bummed. Twiggy has hung on me a few times--enough to need a push of the reset button.

One sure way to do it is to head over to speedtest.net and run the speed test Flash app.

It froze on me this morning while trying to both suck down software updates and grab a bittorrent of the Kubuntu DVD.

Those two examples, since I'm stuck with wi-fi for now, make me suspect madwifi, so that perhaps I should pull down the latest sources and build from that rather than trusting the Ubuntu repository version.

Once we're home again and hooked up to a decent tube (as the Alaskan Senator would say), I'll try that again and see what happens... and perhaps I should reboot and let memtest86 run all night?
