“A nearly impenetrable thicket of geekitude…”

After more than two decades, we’re finally moving flat at the end of the week. We’re not moving far, so things like our phone numbers won’t change. If you need our new postal address for some reason (how quaint, unless you want to send chocolate) then contact me directly.

There is likely to be a significant break in connectivity to those parts of the iay.org.uk empire that are hosted from the home systems as, unfortunately, there is something peculiar (perhaps a DACS) causing trouble on our new phone line. I can’t even order broadband until this is resolved, apparently. And that’s ignoring the secondary problem caused by the telco forgetting about part of our order, the result of which at present is that we’d need to install our router in the bathtub.

This will mean badly degraded e-mail, and downtime for SSH, CVS and the iay.org.uk Shibboleth entities. Much of the rest, including this blog, is hosted in California and shouldn’t be affected.

I sent the chocolate - and I’ll do it again! LM
