Yesterday I had to go to London to install a new cluster for Pipex

My first surprise came the day before, when I was buying the train tickets .. on peak hour, they wanted 110£ ?? for a return ticket (Cardiff-London) .. so I had to leave an hour later (not peak) and it only costed 50£ ..

Only once before I had ride the tube, so when I got to London I was a bit apprehensive … but after looking at the tube’s map, it was quite clear .. and easy to navigate .. unfortunately, once I was out the tube and the guys picked me up on our way to the NOC .. the traffic in London proved to be the ultimate pain .. I made a mental note .. never to live around Webley central ..

Once we got to the Noc, I could finally get some work done, we had 13 servers (lucky number ?) to setup, and it was a breeze to do so .. well, it was until half way thru the NOC lost it’s connectivity .. it seemed they were under a massive DDOS … yep, some things never change.

Once all the machines were up on the rack, it looked nice .. the picture doesn’t show the black dual Xeon (CP) which sits under the 2 DNS and 10 web-servers very well.
