to save money at the colo, desa's brother machine (ka-boom.bignoise.us) is getting decommissioned... I believe ka-boom has the longest uptime of any box I've ever personally worked on, rolling over its jiffies counter 95 days ago, putting him at 592+ days.

root@ka-boom:~# Connection to ka-boom.bignoise.us closed by remote host.
Connection to ka-boom.bignoise.us closed.
[Process exited - exit code 255]I think that's pretty cool. and this is the part where ka-boom gets one-upped repeatedly in comments, but that's ok, too.
