And done, not exactly quick, but it went.

Look at the time, it's almost upgrade oclock. Here's to hoping for a quick and painless one!

OK, seems like there's an urgent security update, so short (hopefully) downtime soon, and then we'll be back up on 2.4.4.

Hi, just a bit of advance warning, we'll have a campus power outage at 20-00 tonight, CEST. So we'll be down for a while then, before we get back up.

Upgrade of this instance coming up, hopefully just a few seconds of downtime.

Unix tip: "killall" is a linux-ism that may or may not do what you intend if you run it on other *nixes.

pkill, however, seems to have generally the same semantics everywhere it's been implemented.

Happy fun instance maintenance time again!

Software in the 80s and 90s was called programs. These programs were designed to solve problems. Today each line of code has been commodified into what we call apps. Where the motivation behind programs was solving problems, behind the app is the question, "Will it make money?"

And now we're on 2.1.0, with lists and neat stuff!

New Mastodon version about, so upgrade time soon.

Nice meeting with EISCAT_3D today, lots of interesting stuff to figure out the next couple of years in order to build the networking, storage, computing, and software infrastructure needed to make great science possible.

Upgrading some build servers, so we can get new shiny builds faster.

Look how new these severs look! They're about five years newer than the previous ones!
