Well here I am typing to you via the brand new charon (actually just a new HD). Debian is no more and Gentoo is here to stay! Its testament to the power of Linux that I can get the server up and running to mostly its original specs within a day.
So now I'm a totally Debian-free shop.
While I was mucking around I decided to do a bit of cleanup. Charon and Hades' homedirs are now synced therefore can edit webpages from Hades and have been migrated to my new super fast disc on their own partition. The idea being that now it should be able to pull them out if ever needed.
