Thank you, dear Vultures, for restoring BOFH to his rightful place on a Friday. Just what I needed after this week...
To the story, great stuff again, Simon! Remote management through a convoluted chain of remote desktops, SSH connections and port forwarding into the LOMs, why does that sound so familiar? And figuring which server by trying them at random until the one your want disappears. All with people calling you (with me, normally to tell me there's a problem, which I already know, but nobody has botherred to pass the damn message on).
And Gina is still on the scene... Hope the enjoy the trip to Amsterdam :)
