We’re Moving!!!

That’s right, ladies and gents!!! biatch0.net and all related sites will be making a short move (literally) of about 10m-15m tops… to a different rack. Everything will likely be down for a couple of days (possibly a week tops, hopefully). Just a quick heads up… in case people start panicking...

ZoneEdit -> XName, ZoneEdit -> DynDNS -> DNS-O-Matic

Well, anyway, Gentoo loaded like a champion on this machine; 2006.1 liveCD recognized everything including the Ricoh MMC/SD/MS reader and the IPW2200BG wireless module (which has to be...
