Last night around midnight I was chatting with Ethan, friend and fellow bacontarian, and he notified me of his latest post to bacontarian.

It is an attempt at unifying the concept of bacontarianism with the new and fastly expaning religion of pastafarianism (the belief that the world was created by the Flying Spaghetti Monster).

He submitted the post, and then proceeded to let our friends at boingboing know about it. Which of course is a perfectly sane thing to do.

Let me stress this, the problem is not with Ethan’s actions, but with the little known fact that the server running bacontarian.com (as well as this site) is an ancient 1GHz machine running OpenBSD out of a small basement room underneath our office. It runs a good 50 domains for web, as well as delivering mail for about 20 people, and is connected to the internet through a community fiber network here in Copenhagen. It’s obviously not built to be boingboinged.

Long story short. I pretty much knew that when I got up this morning, the first thing I’d have to do would be to bike to the office to give the little beast a kick.

And I did,

and it’s back up

and i hope it stays up for a while…..
