Oy. Wifi died right before I posted this. Router hiccup? Computer's back to not wanting to connect; I dug out my ethernet cable. Mouse froze, as it did after the earlier connection, which I didn't mention; switching to a text prompt and back helped last time. This time... did that, did that again, minimized all the windows, logged in at the text prompt, finally it unfroze. :(
