    LOL its an ml350G4, an antique, but its served me well for many years..

    My use of slackware, well, I'm a sys/network admin for 20 odd years, slackwares pretty much whats been used in the ISP's I have worked for, and web hosting stuff as well (strangely, the debian fanboi-ism was never in any place I've been with, either Slackware or RHEL/Centos, or Gentoo), because i was used to it, I use slackware on my home servers, on desktops I used slackware, then at about RH5 I moved desktop to it, but after RH9 I moved back to slackware (mostly because RH lost the plot from RH9 to FC1), as to also why I moved my desktop off slackware, I think it was early day large multimedia suite I used required it, I eventually changed the RPM into a workable tar file to use on slackware so after a while that was moot.

    I find Slackware unbreakable, I love how its stays true to form upstream (I mean take bind for example, if it was meant to be in 7-9 mini packages like in debian, ISC would release it that way), which means no butchering or custom hacking, which introduces more risk of failure. Debians claim to have most packages for linux is true - but only because of that! if you break 1 into 7, even someone as shitty at maths as I am can see you have a much larger grand total

    BTW, I also use Slackware on my laptop (because I despise gnome 3 and even more so unity).

    Some people dont like Slackware because of how it does dependencies, well, I rather know whats going on my system, I like how I can remove a package and install a current package (even though slackware does mostly have current packages even in its updates) and have no fear of some garbage like apt wanting to remove three quarters of my distro

    It also does not do releases by mandates, it releases when its time, though there is -current so you can have latest of everything, kinda like opensuse's
    factory, or gentoo, lastly, updates are as or greater than most "enterprise advertised" distros, eg, an update recently for libpng included v13.0 from 2009.

    And absolute lastly I've also been bitten distro upgrades from RH and debian and ubuntu over the times, I've never been bitten by slackwares, so reliability, stability, and un-breakability, my only gripe is no gnome. but, since I recently moved my ubuntu laptop partition because of unity, and opensuse's factory because of gnome 3, I took the time to get used to KDE, now , I don't mind it, I can do anything I used to do.

    ...well, you did ask

But that's life..
    Nah, I run all this stuff on my multimedia file server (HP mini tower server w/Slackware), since all it does is store my backs of CD's, DVD's and digital B.P.M/itunes, serving them over NFS and minidlna the load is 0 so I decided to put it to *some* use to justify Origin Energy's criminally extortive 25c price per Kw/hr


    Happy New Year!

    I think it was 7am local, because that's the time mine shutdown every morning...

    Back feeding again after a service restart.

    Would have been nice to know it had failed ......(ala FA's auto email.....)
    Yeah, FR24 have a new version, you need to upgrade, I am pretty sure it's FR24 saying "upgrade" by making the fr24feed client shutdown every morning at 7am... After a couple of days of it happening here I did an update and all has been fine since..

    Ahhh that's true I guess... Now I feel a touch silly

    and, no, I don't hold a riggers.. that reminds me, they do similar courses where I did my telco stuff, one of them is pole rescue, thankfully they used a weighted dummy to simulate a real person, coz every student had to lower from top this limp body, and the amount of times that poor dummy was smashed into the poll coming down, haha I kept thinking if that was me I'd tell em to #### off and i'd wait for fire rescue
    That doesn't surprise me at all, knowing more than the enforces, they generally only learn once, and then learn new rules, but often forget the old rules, which is a bit sad considering this might stop them seeing something dangerously dodgy etc... As for being stuck up a pole.. Lets hope you are conscious otherwise you may well end up being a pole dummy

    That's the main thing.. My house is family owned so I have been able to put stuff on the roof without any fuss, but if lightning should take it out and the insurance find fault with it and don't cover it, I'd be very out of pocket (and home)..

    Sitting over at Bongaree near jetty with a laptop and dongles 10cm antenna ar ground level plus 3feet I get ground level at YBBN, I also get much lower coverage *and* about 4 times further west then I do at YCAB with this whopping great thing in the air.
