See, Freak. I'm here. Visiting. *makes a mess of the joint*
Use a pipe instead.
The popular method here is a "bombilla" for mate tea. Makes a fairly good pipe although it clogs up quickly. "Bombilla" is ARgentine forr "straw" but everyone here drinks mate tea which has double the caffine of coffee.
Everyone has their own special mate cup, there are an infinite variety although it was originally a dried gourd now people use mainly wood cups. Originally the straws were bamboo with small holes drilled around the bottom end, now they are mostly stainless steel.
Put the bombilla into the cup, fill 2/3rds with mate then scalding water and sip. You see people walking around with a thermos under their arm and cup/bombilla in hand.
Here is what the assembly looks like: http://tq.educ.ar/grp0001/matesg.htm
Here is a bombilla that many people use as a hash or marijuana pipe: http://webs.satlink.com/usuarios/m/mates/bombilla.htm
Oy...firewall hard drive died, last night, prompting a hardware repair and installation of new firewall setup.
All better, now.
Unfortunately, our backup wasn't as recent as we'd like.
Luckily for the BBS, it wasn't on either of those filesystems.
At approximately noon, EDT, on Tuesday, 09Sep06, the system will be rebooted for a kernel upgrade.
That is all...carry on.
I'm going to try, one more time, to upgrade to version 7.00, later, and see how that plays.
Apology accepted but you really don't need to, in fact we owe you our appreciation for making it available. My comments are intended to assist troubleshooting, not appear as complaints.
Apparently, a fix has been checked in for the problem we've been having, so I'm going to try this, again.
Well, so far so good.
Got the log from yesterday imported into the database, and we're running on 7.01, again.
Keeping my fingers crossed.
