Less than fun server times

So it looks like my host pulled the plug on my server on the morning of the 27nth. There appears to be some mix up with finding my account, which could be anything from a mix-up to "oops we wiped that server". Since its been awhile I've decided that the server probably isn't coming back online anytime soon, so I've got a VPS set up. Most of the stuff is backed up, sadly back in Waterloo. Fortunately I learnt from my more recent laptop failures and the most important bits (namely my delicious code) is in a variety of locations (three cheers for git :) ).
On the plus side I've lost a lot of cruft of configuration that had built up over the years, but on the downside I've got a lot of configuration and sys admin work to do for the next couple of days.
