Not finding anything local I ordered a Linksys BEFSR81 8-port router online last night.
Despite being shown as “in stock” on the site when I made the order, when I now use the tracking facility I see “awaiting shipment from supplier”.
If that doesn’t change by tuesday I’ll cancel the order and take my business elsewhere – somewhere who can actually show their proper stock levels online.
My sun is currently running only on it’s first SCSI disk, the second is offline – meaning I no longer have access to my MP3 collection… The horror!
I’m still getting random network disconnects, but I’ve managed to sort out the libnids1 mess, upload new revisions of late, and komi to the Debian archive.
I also released two new versions of debian-updates, and celebrated the 1000th new user on the Debian administration website.
The only thing that I didn’t manage to do was stay awake for the “Make Poverty History” march in my home-city of Edinburgh – I slept in until 6pm, so I completely missed it.
