Well, the Silverdragon server went back up... and it seems to be down again. Brad told me when he rebooted, there was a hard drive error, but they got past that with an fsck. Well, apparently not, because it's doing the same thing again - connecting, then not delivering. I expect to hear from him tomorrow with details on getting a new Linux box.
Poor Brad. He doesn't deserve this. He's spent so much time and effort into that box over the years.
