The Null Device
If you are reading this, The Null Device is back, at least to some extent. What happened was that the machine it's hosted on decided to upgrade their DSL link, but some genius at the upstream ISP put in the wrong IP address range, effectively cutting off routing to the machine hosting this blog. The machine was still up, just that there was no actual way to reach it. I have it on good authority that the upstream ISP have been sternly told off. Meanwhile, from now on, the actual site will be actively backed up to another machine, so that if the network dies again, it should be easy to relaunch it elsewhere.
(I have also been thinking of ditching the standalone blog and replacing it with one hosted on LiveJournal, who seem to have their shit together reasonably well. The questions is, what would I use dev.null.org for then?)
