Just a quick announcement: Heartland will be going down for essential maintenance in a few minutes.

It should only be down for a couple of minutes, but during that time the site will be unavailable.

The update & subsequent reboot will be to patch GHOST - a newly discovered security hole in the software running on the Heartland servers:

This is one advantage of running a bleeding-edge Arch Linux system. I'm on glibc 2.20 and have been since December. The vulnerability was apparently fixed by 2.18, released August 2013.

This is a common failing in Linux users at my workplace. (I'll get my coat).

Seriously though, I don't understand any of the posts on this thread but am very grateful to those who do We are not worthy!

Laughing fair enough. I'm not really being serious anyway. Mr. Green

And I believe the traditional response to linux distro-wars is Nah, I'm not really into Pokémon.
