The new server is in.
I'd like to send out passwords to people via pgp, except that I do not
know how to use pgp. A terrible confession, but there it is. :-)
Therefore, what I'd like to do is talk on the phone with one of the
developers who does know how to use pgp, and that person can
distribute passwords to the rest of the team.
I don't know where most of you live, except that I know Magnus is in
another country. So probably Brion Vibber or LDC would be a good
choice, so as to keep the phone bill down. :-)
Basically, the first devteam person to send me their phone number will win
a free phone call from me, with the root password for the new server.
Jimbo wasn't kidding about the server being "new"--it doesn't even
have Apache running on it yet. I assume that's perhaps Jimbo's way
of soliciting our help in installing Apache/PHP/MySQL?
Anyway, I have the password, and I'll send it to developers I know
who send me their PGP public key from their email address. I couldn't
find anyone's public keys on the public servers except Axel, but his
was even older than my 1994 key, and I couldn't verify that it is
really the same Axel Boldt since it has an old address.
Wikipedia was down for 2+1/2 hours this morning instead of the usual 4/3.
During this time I tried accessing ross.bomis.com and that took three
minutes. Normally it takes a few seconds, even when Wikipedia is
inaccessible. What happened?
64.26.170 put the demonmoo page back after it had been deleted. I'd like to
figure out who this is and what else he's done but:
1. A "This user's contributions" query on an incomplete IP returns nothing.
There is no indication what the last byte was.
2. How do I find the history of a page that's been deleted?
