Today Shaw changed my IP addresses, this was the cause
of web pages and FTP access being unavailable for much
of today.
As of now I have changed the DNS for the fansubs.ca and
moonie.ca hostnames that point to the NT box.
I have not yet determined the new IP address for the Linux Box
or if it's grabbed a new IP address yet. Once this is determined
I'll change the DNS on the remaining host names and advise
the owners of wpganime.ca and shingen.net (both hosted on
the Linux box) of the new IP for them to update to.

Around midnight the "hole in the bucket" problem of finding
the Linux box's new IP address was solved. (It defaulted to
a non-functioning GUI so we couldn't do anything without
Telneting in including determining the IP address, which we
needed to even Telnet in. *_* "There's a hole in the bucket
dear Liza, dear Liza..." ^_-) Anyways the "duct tape" solution
Comstock (Shingen) came up with was for me to Telnet from
the NT Box to the Linux box using a computer name instead
of an IP address or DNS hostname. (This only works within
the local network through my hub, and not through the external
internet. ^_-) Once I found the IP address Comstock
(Shingen) was able to log in from his home and do stuff.
Amoungst this stuff he re-configured the Linux Box to default
to the command line on start up (by deleting a file) which will
make this_much_ easier next time.
