Wow, you've got a fast server! My main one, this one, is
a homebrew i815 from Aug01 that has .75G RAM and runs
at roughly 700MHz. Plenty fast for Unix, even loaded to
4.00+ when I'm doing several things.
Anyway, last fall I did a portypgrade -fa on my 600 ports.
Rebuilding everything took around 5 days. I'm
making notes of your suggestions for the next time
something goes awry!
PS: personal note: what's the general reaction to the
vitrification plant over by you? should we offline this?
