dead, probably dead (x2?), alive again
coming home after a long work day I detected a strange smell in my room; after some investigation it turned out that guinan's motherboard has melted down; i.e. her third host body is dead for sure (offers for a replacement welcome). well, no flat server at the moment. more unpleasant is that it seems to have killed (via the kvm switch) my TFT; need to check again, call the insurance company, probably buy a new screen. — currently I'm typing in front of an old & not very healthy 15" CRT; I hope the problem is fixed before I turn blind. (oh, BTW, the kvm switch might be dead, too, at least keyboard & mouse have stopped working several times.) good news: my hero&hausmasta chrisu has soldered a — whatever, the part to be able to connect to the serial port in my bricked fonera, & after changing the RX/TX cables it really works with the serial extension cable I have (& cutecom as a terminal app). some times later it works ("works" as in: I successfully re-flashed & therewith de-bricked kes). the key was not to transfer the needed files via cutecom and the xmodem protocol but via tftp. helfpul links:
