mmmmm, usable. Mezzo Desktop is pretty ace. I'd certainly welcome more computers working this way.

hello London?

Hello? Are you there London?

we have new server touchdown at 00:32 GMT. The eagle has landed. Repeat, the eagle has landed.

Welcome to our new, faster, more reliable server. This picture is of the final file transfer, which took almost less time than my phone took to focus..

For the techies, the main syncing of the site's data files took place late last week (and every 12 hours since), and clocked in at around 700KB/s (max speed on old server's link). The best I've seen to the new box is 7MB/s (yes, that's megabytes per second) from the uk debian mirrors. So it's quick. Oh boy is it quick. Dual Xeon cpus, with 2GB of fast RAM and a nice phat RAID1 array running ReiserFS under Debian Linux. Apache 2, PHP5, MySQL5. Tasty.
