So, amid a new security issue, Apache 2.0.46 is Released and I set about upgrading all of the servers I’m responsible for. I start with prodigy, because skyhawk, our webmaster isnt on, I leave it running. My the time I’ve upgraded 3 Dells run Linux, and a FreeBSD server I have, Prodigy still hasnt even finished

1
./configure

.

Another 4 servers later, I’m still waiting on Prodigy. Jesus, there’s a reason it’s called Slowaris.

Wowsa

heanet@canyonero:~$ ps -ef | grep -c httpd
1317

and that’s just http, there’s another 317 ftp downloads at the same time. That’s an awful lot of downloads.

Leathermen are great, today we actually used a Leatherman to cut 5 cm thick wooden floortiles, and it did it better than the hacksaw we tried to use first. Then, in a stunning overture the Leatherman made light work of rackmounting a Cisco 12400. What that photo wont tell you is that they are about 1.5 metres high and weigh about half a tonne.

Also, I got annoyed enough to post to IIU, something I havnt done in a while (though it is hard when you work in the industry).
