Debian upgrade time

Greetings all,

Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 was released last month [1] so we're in the process of upgrading everything on antiflux.org. This shouldn't involve taking the whole server offline until right at the end for the new kernel, but you may notice individual services (e.g. web server, email, databases) going offline briefly while the new packages are installed. The plan is to start this afternoon and it may take a day or two to get through everything.

We'll post updates at http://log.antiflux.org/system/ (or http://antiflux.blogspot.com/ if something happens and we go offline). If you notice anything severely broken that isn't noted in either of those places, please contact us at root@antiflux.org if it lasts more than a few minutes.

Thanks,
Tim
