And summer bites again!

So, summer has arrived - how can I tell? The heat is killing the servers in our office again, the poor little AC unit can't keep up when the temperature outside is getting to summer weather. So the door to the magical cupboard is open for the moment, as the office temperature is slightly lower (but still, not great), and it's keeping the cupboard at somewhere around 26, which is still a little higher than I'd like, but better than the 32/33 that knocks the main firewall out.

I'll be replacing the main firewall over the weekend with a lower power (and thus less heat generating) soekris box (which should have enough grunt to shift the packets), and means that we'll go from OpenBSD 4.3 -> OpenBSD 4.5 at the same time.

Also, it's time to finally get the workstations on to lenny - as they're all NFS root, it becomes slightly tricky to get the setup just right for them... hopefully we can start rolling it out to the developers early next week, and then we should be in business...
