Software updates
As you can tell the farm is still concentrating on Rosetta work. Its currently up to 55th place in the Top Participants list. Despite the "boot hole" patching (twice) and a Debian point release during the week the recent average credit is still climbing.

More interruptions
The NBN installers are back late next week to finish off the fibre connection so that will mean a break in production while they do their bit. Hopefully that will be the last interruption for a while.

Internet connectivity has been good since switching from DSL to the NBN network. At the moment they have fibre to the building and then they're using the existing copper phone line for the last hop. The highest speed plan they offer using this method is a NBN50 plan (50Mbit downloads).
