OK you asked for it. Here have $PHB who, rather than doing the
intelligent thing[1] like telling me he has a problem, brings it up in
the monthly manglers meeting in front of $DIRECTOR. $DIRECTOR hassled my
decidedly non-PHB who askes me to have a look at it.

The problem? $PHB couldn't see a single intranet page, so "My network is
broken and I can't see anything!"
