Where did home go?

For things that have to do with those crazy test servers... and yeah. By request of z-man, and, of course, you gotta obey...

Z-man went on some seminar and is expected to be back tonight IIRC. Probably something happened to bugfarm in that time and noone's there to fix it.
There's no place like ::1

For an OS upgrade, all computers at the institute were restarted yesterday and we were only informed of that on Monday, which I didn't notice because institute mail is inaccessible from the seminar location (or I was too stupid). Plus, the upgrade made the partition the servers live on invisible again. It'll be some hours before I can bring them up again.

I don't know what did get updated, but the process involves flattening the system partition and reinstalling the whole system. It doesn't take long and I assume it is easier to administer than a partial upgrade. Our regular user data sits on a server somewhere else, but the Armad data is on a special partition on only my pc, and the link to that partition is lost on this occasion; the sysadmin has to restore it. Of course, that happened by now, but I still won't bring the server up on that PC. My main concern right now is the performance, and my home server is much better suited to spot problems there.
