    Or perhaps you’ve written a rather ground breaking insight into some aspect of Debian and you feel compelled to share it with others? Knock up a longer editorial article and send it to the editors.

    Debian UK mirror on an Xmas break (not)
    Submitted by Thing on Tuesday, December 24, 2002 – 20:12
    DebianAfter a couple of days when things went from bad to worse with the piece of junk that is open.hands.com (a.k.a www.uk.debian.org, ftp.uk.d.o, cdimage.d.o etc.) the final straw came when after swapping a few more parts around in the hope of stumbling across a diagnosis, the bloody thing decided to lose sight of the RAID1 that it uses as it’s root partition.

    Rather than spent the festive season in Harbour Exchange, I’ve brought open home with me, so the reason you cannot ping it any more is that there is nothing plugged into the other end of the cable :-/

    Hopefully I’ll be able to sort out what the problem is, but even if not it seems likely that we’ll be able to replace it with a shiny new SCSI beast soon, so bear with us.

    Happy Xmas 🙂

    Cheers, Phil.

    This is just to let everyone know that a temporary replacement is being set up, as several people have offered help already.

    If anyone wishes to contribute, please send offers to mirrors@debian.org, as always. 🙂
