Minotaur is back online, with a fresh Debian install.  I've copied the 
basics back into place, but there will be some work needed to get 
everything back in place.

Henner is helping out soldering up a random 12v PSU to the two DB9-RJ45 
adapters to provide power to the keypads.

We should have things rolling soon.  If you're looking for data from the 
old install, check out /var/backups/old-minotaur/

Please be careful with disk space use.  The SSD that is providing the 
mission critical rootfs is only 2GB.

There is a 750G drive setup with LVM to be used for other stuff.
