i was wondering about that yesterday evening, no problem for me i'll
keep it for emergency only; as a side note, i asked to the admin and
apparently they don't have any remote reboot device (apc, ...).

why not Brian, he has some administration knowledge and is on a
different time shift.

like i said previously, moving during July isn't a problem for me but
August will really be a calendar nightmare (i have 4 exams to study and
pass) except for the w-e of the 6th and 7th of August where i should be
home doing nothing special. When you're ready let me know i have a
friend owning servers in the Netherlands and he goes there sometimes;
may be we can arrange a meeting closer to your home (the servers are
located in Amsterdam in the Telecity datacenter of Amsterdam Zuidoost)
