yoyo mode

OS upgrade (to Debian 3.1) is in progress.

Current status: packages appear to have upgraded sucessfully; now to reboot.

Update 5:42pm: even though they said there's no kernel upgrade in this part of the process, something decided to overwrite the boot block anyway to force booting from the CDROM and the CDROM seems to only know how to do a fresh install. meaning this is going to take longer than I thought. bleah.

Update 7:15pm: ok, we have our old boot block back. certain other things look decidedly wonky, but we're up for now.

Scheduled network maintenance (6/16/2005 12mn-3am)

This just in:
On Wednesday night/Thursday morning, June 15th and June 16th 2005, we will be performing scheduled maintenance on the Point of Presence (POP) through which your Broadband connection is routed.

Maintenance will begin at 12:00 AM PDT and end by 03:00 AM PDT on Thursday morning, and while you will experience a service disruption during this time, it is unlikely that your service outage will extend for the length of the maintenance time frame. Routine maintenance events such as these often have service interruptions that last just a few minutes.
As usual, this is all I know.

Update (6/15):  This appears to have been postponed. More later.
