I have one Arch server left at home, it is behaving badly. It has some fairly new stuff on it so I can’t replace it with CentOS. I should be able to replace it with a new Fedora. So I hunted for a minimal install image… nothing! Netinstall? Ofcourse not! Fedora is a desktop OS, […]

We are back! Sort of, I’m still migration from a single VPS to a set of VM’s. This brings with it a new set of problems related to proxying and things breaking because of this. Going full out IPv6 has not made it easy, there are a lot of strange things with IPv6 and Zimbra. […]
