=== Toushirou Reboots ===
Even if the kernel seems less bloated, regular reboot are necessary.
Be sure we only resort to this solution when really there are
unsolvable problems due to kernel oops or brokeness. A few days ago it
was necessary, then the next one should be in a month or two. This
does not really affect availability of services, as this is a matter
of minute before everything is up again, but people using screens
would be annoyed.
=== HQ Technical Problems ===
Due to an unfortunate accident in the HQ while moving in furniture,
both the firewall and backup machine were chocked. Result is the
firewall hard drive is injured, and even if the machine is still
working fine, it may probably not survive a reboot. The lack of hosted
services on this machine should not be a problem as there is no more
important external services not available outside, but you should
understand lags from my part, as i may suddenly have no internet
connection, or be busy repairing. The backup machine is not
responding, and my screen died by the way, so i'm currently blind.
According to the strange sounds coming from it, it seems the hard
drive is out of order. Then, starting from now, you shouldn't count on
us having an available backup of your data, and it might even be
impossible to recover older backups (as we are not rich enough to
backup the backup).
Orfeo and Toushirou should continue working quite fine, but please
backup your crucial data in case we are not able to repair everything
fast enough before another problem arise.
May the heat stops injuring machines, and god bless them to avoid
