Plan is on the dot of midnight for the Hamster to shot with a sedative dart and transported to a shiny new cage, where he will wake up with twice the heartbeat

It's all a bit annoying but the cage has got messy really quickly as a nasty little bug has taken up most of the space in the cage.

So all livestock will need relocating so the verminators can work freely.

How long do you think it will take? (For the insomniacs amongst us)

For the techies then.

We run on big Dell R610 servers, that run various versions of "XenServer". XenServer lets us create loads of "virtual servers" that can be reconfigured to say have more memory or more CPU at the click of a button, and the virtual server can also be exported as a file and imported to another "real" server and started again.

It is all wonderful stuff, but the XenServer we were on is a year and a half out of date and suffers from a horrible bug that eats disk space.

So essential I have just exported downsizer from there and imported to the latest Dell R610 and given us some more CPU cores.

Once all the virtual servers are off the old R610, it will get rebuilt with the latest greatest and hopefully less buggy XenServer 5.6fp.

Luckily these days we are running 6 Dell R610 all with 2 top of the range CPUs and 48gb memory each, plus 3 older servers. So taking one server off the line is not too much of a big deal
