Well, I've asked some time ago on how to do this (I'm the owner of escher):


As the machine is idling most of the time I'd like to do one of the

a) install one/more chroots on it so that anyone can use them

b) take it back to my home to work on debian-installer for Alpha. If
   there'd be a problem with Alpha again (like in the time faure and
   lully were dead) I could put it back into the net in a couple of
   days (I've got a car to transfer it to my university)

Personally, I don't know what is needed more right now, maybe you all
could help me decide :)


P.S.: We had a powerdown today (broken coffee-machine...), so the
      uptime stopped at 117 days... and we won't have any coffee in
      the office for quite a while :-((
