Oh yes, I forgot to mention, my stupid firewall at home died again, leaving my primary MX, Site (including blog), and numerous applications offline.

It keeps losing it’s default gateway. It usually reboots it’s self, but occasionally doesn’t. The remote hands (i.e. housemate) doesn’t wake up til 15:00ish, so had to leave it off.

Should all be solved as soon as I get my colo sorted 😀

As for the firewall, never get a Netgear FVS124G. It’s completely rubbish. This fault, and more annoyingly it’s bottleneck. It only has a 12meg throughput, which is brilliant considering I am on a 20meg line (which I do actually get).

Will have to save some pennies for a PIX or something similar.
