I've finally gotten a static IP from the ISP, so now the site should be more or less back to normal again.
The site is now back online after the move, but I'm getting annoyed with my ISP. After the move I no longer get a static IP, and have to apply for that separately. I'm sure it'll get sorted out eventually, but the site might not available all of the time.
Answer: For quite a while (provided that the room is not too hot). It's still running without fan and without problems.
Question: How many days can the server run with its chassis fan unplugged?
I didn't think there would be any snow this year, but I was wrong.

Asus eee memory gotcha
I decided that it was time for my Asus eee 1000h to get its memory capacity doubled. Installing the 2 GB SO-DIMM was no problem what so ever, but neither windows nor linux would report anything else than 1 GB. Turns out that you have to press F2 at startup to go to BIOS in order for the computer to realise that the installed memory has changed. After Save&Exit all of the memory is usable.
udev rules gotcha
I've been writing custom naming and numbering udev rules today. On gotcha was that if you use PROGRAM in an udev rule to create a custom name the script launched from PROGRAM has to have exit status 0. If it doesn't that rule won't work at all even if all of the other parts of the rule are correct. That took quite a while to figure out. Fighting with udev is no fun.
It's good to be home again.

Fun statistics one and two.
I've started to get a lot of referrer spam lately, primarily to this page for some reason. The access statistics page lists referrers so I've had to write filters that removes the spam domains, which is annoying.
