Very long day uploading (Upstream seems to suck pretty bad here...)

I've been uploading the image since noon today, another 8 hours or more before it's finished. I've also got a torrent seeded on LinuxTracker, but that was just as slow (though that's mostly because I only had one person attached, so bittorrent was basically just creating an http download stream). (I'm uploading it to a server temporarily to allow the OLPC guys to download it.)

Big areas identified for trimming the Gentoo image: almost 1GB of documentation in the image... that can likely be online as easily as anything. 1.3GB in the portage tree and that *should* be something you can rsync down at any time. Together that would get the image size down to about 2GB internally, which might even fit onto a CD when compressed and defragmented.

Also got work done on paying customer's projects. Have to deal with a couple of deployment issues on one of the VoIP projects along with the regular crop of todo items on the billing/provisioning systems. For now, though, I need to sleep. Off to the caffe tomorrow so that we don't have any distractions from the paying work.

    Please return to the torrent swarm to seed if you can. There are 8 of us trying to download it via bittorrent now.

    Hmm, the two clients should have been online all day yesterday, with brief 2-3 minute outages as I switched between them (so I could turn off the (noisy) workstation). Anyway, the workstation is online again now.
