Server migration before server migration (#E14)

Quick update post: My all-time favourite hoster Uberspace veeery recently announced that the entire U6 generation of their servers will be moved to a different data center this very evening, as the old one will be torn down. Wan Hung Lo was hosted on those. Starting time about 8 o’clock in the evening local time, downtime probably four to eight hours in total, but servers are moved in smaller batches.

With two hours notice I decided to upgrade to the U7 server generation which everybody will be forced to until the end of the year (EOS of CentOS6 with EOM by Uberspace). […]


Kalorik JU1400 comparison (WHL #60F1)

Just a minor comparison post as I’m in the mood to clean up my place and take things apart. An intent that usually only achieves one of those things, as taking apart stuff makes a larger mess than just the original thing sitting somewhere…

This is (well, was, but it’s not broken in a destructive teardown, just taken apart so that it theoretically could be reassembled) the vacuum cleaner that I think my mom bought without asking in September 2007 when I was about to start studying. Clearly got less use than the family vacuum of similar vintage, just due to the sheer size difference of the places, let alone I did not friggen vacuum every week. […]


Sport exhaust pop and crackle of a…Dirt Devil M2881-0 vacuum cleaner? (WHL #60)

Someone had fun. With the old crap that everyone technical gets for free when visiting family. This time: An old vacuum cleaner, probably close to ten years old. Described to me as “makes weird noises, shut off immediately” (sure). Oh, and of course it was someone else that used the thing when it went from fully working to probably defective. Aah, family.

Plugged it in at home and had a giggle:

People spend thousands of Euros to make their shitty cars even more ridiculous, and here’s my extremely low riding Dirt Devil asphyxiating on pop and crackle noises :lol:

Alright, further disassembly just reduces weight and didn’t uncover anything stuck inside. […]
