  • Oct 8, 2007 - Upgrade NIC -> 100 Mbit - downtime total < 10 min.
  • May 27, 2008 - Upgrade to network system also included an unannounced move to a VPN, effectively killing the site at this location. A network connection with a different commercial provider was ordered, this will take several week to implement and will mean that the site will be under a different, as yet unknown, domain name.
  • Jun 3, 2008 - as a temporary measure the site has moved, and can be found at ghostwolf.dyndns.org. This is unlikely to be the permanent new address, but will be kept as long as possible to reduce disruption. As a result of the reduced bandwidth the sections for the yum repos and the technical lookup have been permanently removed.
  • Sep 22, 2008 - New domain registered - telelib.com, all links to the site should now use the www.telelib.com url. The ghostwolf url should still work, but will be redirected.
