My Seattle QRSS Grabber is Offline - and has been for sometime. In an effort to bring the Grabber back online and make some changes to stabilize its operations - I managed to almost kill the computer. The computer is remote and therefore most system admin is done with a program called "VNC", which is a remote console control program.
When things go wrong at a distance, . . . they really go wrong - in this case I inadvertently removed some of the Gnome Windowing system, so I can no longer access the console window from remote.
Just to check on things, I went to the server (physical) location and tried to repair the damaged Gnome Windowing system. After lots of "futzing around" I have decided it is best to just re-install/upgrade to the current release of Ubuntu - which I think is 10.04.
Unfortunately, I will not have time to work on the system for a while. I will do some planning and will download the install/upgrade Ubuntu CD's
Until then - No Seattle Grabber - Sorry!
