Yeah, I don't have admin priviledges, it's my office computer which is
supposed to be cut of the Internet.

I did a bit of reading on source routing and I'd like to try it. Just
for fun, in case our router accepts such packets. So, is there a way
to do it in python?

I'm left to drift on a dead calm sea
And watch her forever through the cracks in the beams
Nailed across the doorways of the bedrooms of my dreams"
