it has a static IP so I can ssh to it
over the internet. I think network manager (when working correctly) is
actually perfect for it, it should keep the connection to my home
wireless network alive, but it's also very easy and convenient for
situations when I wouldn't want to be messing around with
config files, like if I'm travelling and decide to take the laptop
me, if my girlfriend borrows it, etc.
That comes as a surprise. I've never managed to make network manager
work with a *static IP* (but then, I'm little more than a beginner in
all things GNU/Linux). I've been googling quite a lot and it would seem
that such configuration is only possible if your *router* is capable of
assigning a static IP based on a client's MAC address (about which I
would very much like to be disproved). My Belkin router, alas, has no
such capability ...
