A quick note. Have just managed to get www.blakjak.net running to let me provide more updates. My coadmin dpa and my good friend Snooker have stepped up and helped heaps - big thanks guys - but the work continues.
At this point people with 'simple' services hosted on the machine may find their stuff is already working.
Those whos content involves active hosting (php) or databases (mysql/postgres) will need to wait a few more days... the new server is a long way from the old one and there's bandwidth limitations to get the data migrated.
The final big hit is the mailing lists I host (mainly the NZOSS) though i'm working on an improvised temporary fix for them while the new lists are built up (which will take some time.) Meanwhile the hard drive containing all our data will be shipped to Wellington.
As i'm heading overseas for work this weekend and will be away for about 9 days, i'm hoping that all will be relatively straightforward and that dpa will have opportunity to restore services during next week for those who remain.
Again my apologies for all the trouble. The new system has been a long time coming and should ultimately put things back to their normal, generally reliable self.
If anything doesn't work, doesn't look right or if you need a particular item hurried along or fixed, please don't hesitate to email me.
