For quite a while I've had the project of getting everything on
tmtowtdi.perl.org moved to a new box called onion. The CPAN foo I'm
hosting was moved a while ago and www.perl.org has been running on
onion ever since I started hosting it at ValueClick, so those sites
were not affected.
Earlier today tmtowtdi had to be moved to a new rack, and when they
turned it on again it didn't quite feel like booting.
So, it got moved from the datacenter to it's current place behind my
desk and I got it started. Instead of just getting it running,
changing DNS, going home and hoping for the best, I took the
"opportunity" to get stuff moved to onion. It seems like we have all
data in good shape, and if not there's the nightly backups.
perl.org and cpan.org mail is running again and all queued mail from
the secondary MX has been processed. I will open up the websites
that were on tmtowtdi in a few minutes.
bugs.perl.org is not running as it will require some coordination
with Richard or more work than I can bother to do right now. So,
please don't blame Richard for perlbug being down. It's all my
Also, the people who had accounts to update the sites and whatnot on
tmtowtdi doesn't have access to onion (yet). If they'll please mail
me, then I'll get them set up again.
There's probably some other stuff missing that I forgot about right
now. Please mail me and let me know.
The good part is that the new box is much faster, not running some
ancient Linux and have RAID-5. So you can now receive both perl6-all
and p5p faster than you can start a tail on your mail log after
ps. if any of the above doesn't make much sense it's because I've
eaten approximately 2 tons of mini snickers and not much else
