Everything on my local machine (except Root-Boot, I’m not tough
for that yet) set up as Raid1 now.
Compiled and installed kernel 2.2.3 for WWW.Stun.de,
updated lots of RPMs and wrote some new pages for the Admins.
Everyone has his own server-statistics-graph now !

pay by law for christian church, but the office changed
to another location. So maybe next time.
Again a server crash, but who cares, netware is promised
dead and it’s Bill’s turn now.
More DNS entries today, and I think their concept also
leeks. If they do round robin, they’ll get surprise…
…but let’s see if they find out themselves.
Had no contact to Aya for 42 hours, which made it a really
bad day too.
Configured Raid-5 on one single harddisk just for testing

Tried to compile Apache 1.3.4 with PHP 3.0.7 and MySQL
but everytime I miss some other strange libraries.
9th march 1999
Hey Aya, once in Microsofts arms, and you can’t escape ))))))

Kernel 2.2.2 tcp timeout problems seems solved.
For those who can’t wait for patchfix here’s a small
which “makes it a little bit better.”
Go to /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_sack enter 0
Go to /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_timestamps enter 0
Go to /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_window_scaling enter 0
If you even can’t download the 2.2.3 version, because of

3rd march 1999
Have to fix that “IP frame delayed” problem on IPPP devices.
