In the meantime, is there an easy way to get Pony back up? There's a
couple of housekeeping scripts that run on it, plus the asterisk system
for the phones. I can move the scripts over to minotaur, but asterisk
should probably stay where it is..


You know, I wonder if (with enough pre-annoucement and warning), we
should just start again with Pony? It's got a mess of stuff on it, and
it might be nice to begin again with backups, regular upgrades, and so
on. Or just start another cleaner VM and begin moving stuff over...)
