Well, my contract with Pacific has expired, which means I'll be
disconnected as soon as Telstra get around to it... Not sure when I'll
have another account established - again, it depends on how long it
takes Telstra to change the provider codes on my line. Hmm... Still,
when it does happen, assuming it happens any time this year, I'll
finally be able to run my own servers again.

The Melbourne weather has turned miserable; good for farmers etc so I
won't complain, but it's still depressing.

My file server at home, snowy, let the smoke out of its power supply
last night. The fan stopped spinning, and although the supply does have
a thermal cut-out, it managed to get pretty hot before it actually shut
down. I'll have to replace it this weekend, but until then I have no
file server or development web server
