On the move

The house is almost done, some final works will get done this week. Sunday we will move into our new house. And that means that my servers need to be moved as well. In my head i planned the job a couple of times, but reality always proves different.
I placed the servers at their new designated spot and slowly booted them one by one. The network was already configured so after the DNS change propagated around the world the first visitors were able to see this website again.
Only, I couldn't.
And i had no idea why.
After i plugged the linux server into another port on the router the problem went away and i was able to access the server from my laptop.
I do some checks and go home, knowing that there still stuff that needs to be done after this, but the physical part is over, the hard labour of carrying the UPS, the servers and monitor to the car and placing them in the basement. Now it's configuration and monitoring, that's easy, it's my job

The webmasters falset

Do you have no shame? I guess not. This was at one of the first weeks at work, both Koen and I are fresh webmasters at NRC Handelsblad and nrc.next. That day we were triggered by the word "samba", everytime we heard it, we started singing this tune. (we heard the word a lot, we had to share drives from linux machines with you guessed well Samba, and Quarkness had new shoes with the same name).
