A very interesting thing has occured. 3Com is now pointing marimba.3com.com at my update server. Thanks to whoever made this happen at 3Com, although it is making the crappy Marimba Castanet server crash a lot sooner (I may just make a cron job to restart it once a week if this keeps up).
I'm now seeing over 10,000 unique Audrey serial numbers updating (or checking for updates) from 2-1b.artoo.net per month.
Now, if I could just get marimba.net's nameservers (which appear to be offline) to send 3com.marimba.net my way, we'd have all those lil Audrey's running with an accessable shell and no user hacking required ;-p
