The Sysops Log!
"The random musings of a bemused Sysop"
OK, so I should have started this a long time ago as it's been a very
interesting last 12 months.
- Monday 31st March
Full test on main server drive, took about 18 hours and came up clean.
Problems with Internet traced to a faulty network card at GIST.
I put a patch on the proxy to get around the problem for now.
- Friday 28th March
A friend died today.
- Thursday 27th March
Re-Enabled Encryption Manager. Tests were not totally conclusive.
- Wednesday 26th March
Disable Encryption Manager for test.
Upgrade News server to ver 4.r.
- Sunday 23rd March
Wrote to Connect.com suggesting their proxy server "inhales deeply".
Apparently connect.com is having a "scheduled maintenance" from 5:00am to 7:00a
m tho service has not yet resumed and its now 7:45am.
- Saturday 22th March
Mail to MR regarding Mountain Mail causing WGM to crash upon reloading
Not totally convinced it is MM causing it, but we have to start somewhere.
- Friday 21st March
Finally got the lines sorted out with Telstra. There is still a problem with t
he line grouping, but I can live with it for now.
- Thursday 20th March
Set news server to cut cross-posts down to 2. Bad documentation on this option
, so will have to see if it helps.

Botanic Gardens to see Puck and the other fairies perform - a good laugh!
- Monday 17th March
Mail to Murkworks and Vircom regarding conflict with TCP/IP v.10.12
- Friday 14th March
Decided to downgrade the TCP/IP back to the version I had before Monday.
Appears to have made a signifigant improvement for C/S callers.
MM-1 was enjoyed by all :-)
- Thursday 13th March
After running dual proxies overnight I have cut back to the original PC though
it now has a different name in preparation for adding a 2nd DNS capability.
- Wednesday 12th March
Trashed the Proxy drive. Fast lesson in "aliasing" Linux servers enabled a fas
Total re-install of the Proxy, good chance to upgrade it to RH 4.1 anyway. Als
o added the latest copy of Squid and learnt a lot about User Properties.
- Monday 10th March
Install upgrade to Vircom TCP/IP
- Thursday 27th February
Final stage of GIST relocation means we will be without Inet until tea time - d
epending when you have tea.
