network management

I'm firmly in the "NetworkManager is the devil" camp, because it messes up my network configuration without triggering a loud error in syslog or somewhere. Grr.

I'm now using wicd to manage my wireless/ethernet networks.

Note, to use wicd in a non-systray window manager (wmii), type "wicd-client -n &"

Lastly, "ifconfig" is deprecated(!).  Use "ip" instead --
"ifconfig" => "ip a"
"route" => "ip r"
