Thanks for starting that list. I'll be happy to be on it.
Also, we have a few lightly skilled tech folks in radioactive who will
probably help, at least with monitoring. And I imagine the borderlands
hacklab folks will probably want to help with the linux side of things as
I'm not sure how we can help with a reinstall. It seems like folks in
amsterdam will have to do that, right? We can build a new box (we have
some old boxen sitting around) and ship it there, but that'll probably be
We should at least look at the logs and see what the new problem is.
Frankly, radioActive depends on this server a ton, for our show archiving
and podcasting. Mark said there was a lot of space, so we've been using it
a lot. I know a lot of other shows around the world do as well. So I'd
love to see it upgraded and stable.
Unfortunately, I dont know much aout bsd, just general linux and debian,
mostly. Can someone more familiar with bsd give us some suggestions for
upgrading the existing system? Once we get the stability down, we can talk
about upgrading the site software. Anyone know how up to date the wiki is?
When the list gets created, please send the url around so that we can get
signed up here in sd.
happy techie holidays,
