My network provides a DHCP server which is used by all but two
machines and gadgets. Now when I want to know a device's IP or MAC
address I usually just parse it out of the leases file.
Just now I noticed that my sb2 doesn't have an entry - the last
contact between my DHCP server and the sb2 was on April 4th, according
to the logs. My leases are 24h, so strictly speaking it doesn't have
one anymore. No big deal as long as the address doesn't get
redistributed, but still.
