AlisonW - The .com test site

This site is currently being redeveloped. Although it will work fine it will continue to look terrible for a while yet. Sorry!

It being a 'season'able few days where one isn't necessarily pushed to do work stuff, and not being at home for a few days, I hadn't checked that some of my services were running.

I just did :-(

Seems that my London gateway server's IPv4 connection is all happy and content but its IPv6 one is not. Doing the SSH thing suggests that I can't resolve it remotely as the external tunnel turns out to depend on the live state of the internal interface. Somewhat weird and unexpected behaviour, but the drop in IPv6 connectivity appears to be the same time I turned off the internal routers (which I do if I'm going to be away a while).

Guess I'll never be turning them off again then!

I probably want them to run away scared of what would happen if they stuck around, so maybe Trump?
