I just pulled the hotel reservation confirmation for FC 2010 out of my spam folder. Spam Assassin says:

what's the big idea programming Howl's Moving Castle at 00:50 CET?!
...und nichts kapiert. Man könnte den Beitrag des NDR-Magazins Zapp als Provinz-Posse abtun, aber nach meinen Erfahrungen ist das symptomatisch für weite Teile des Ostens. Der stellvertrender Bürgermeister, der journalistische Betätigung im öffentlichen Raum für genehmigungspflichtig hält. Sein Auftritt in einer Oberlehrerhaftigkeit, wie sie mir schon öfters bei der Obrigkeit (oder wer sich auch nur dafür hält) im Osten unangenehm aufgefallen ist. Als hätte es die Wende nie gegeben.
That's what the customer said last Friday. The Linux driver for the Intel e1000 card doesn't work on their hardware. No syslog messages, though. And it's urgent! Their setup should go live in a week! O-kay. Personally, I didn't think it was the driver. Sounds more like a hardware issue. Does the switch show hardware link? What, they have an Ethernet bonding configuration in a high availability setup? Turn that off first. So they told us that they had turned off HA and Ethernet bonding, but still it doesn't work. But what do they mean by "does not work"? They told us that the switch wasn't accessible, in a different location or so. How about getting some cheap Longshine switch and try it, just to see if there is Ethernet link beat.

I drove to the data center yesterday. The machine didn't even shutdown. All fans running, memory okay...Okay, no hardware issue after all. In fact, it was a broken maintenance script which was supposed to set up the chroot environment for postfix. Instead, it copied everything to the root directory and changed the permission of /tmp to 755 and ownership to user "postfix". Thus, a couple of processes just crashed. At least the machine continued to process incoming e-mail. Well, almost exclusively.
If the story that supposedly happened to Brad Jayakody is true, and according to a spokesman of Heathrow Airport it well could be, then there is another good reason for not flying via Heathrow. I'd rather even fly via Paris CDG.
