Upgrades 2001-03-22 00:28:03

We upgraded berzerker, the FTP server, tonight. It's now a single Xeon 400. very nice.

However, the main switch used for DSL started freaking out on us tonight when we installed the new server, so we had to get rid of the switch and rig up the DSL connection through some backup network hardware. If you get packet loss, that's why. We'll be fixing this within the next two days.

In addition, the new shell server is 99% ready to run. We've just got to move home directories over to it and replace mexicanhouseboy. That will probably happen on friday night or saturday night. At that point, we'll start the migration process to get people off of thrall and onto the new, VERY VERY fast server.
