Auroville’s internal communication system

 

Auronet's crisis team

Some of the Auronet team members in charge of maintaining the Auronet mail servers, daily (read: nightly) have their hands full with enabling the almost 900 eager Auroville users to access their mail that comes in, and goes out, via a good set of high-speed connection modems.

And what with the general infrastructure conditions in India's hot season, the frequent power cuts, power fluctuations etc, the team is doing a tough job and keeps us going. Here's a BIG  BRAVO to Bobby (Gujarat, India), Lena (Ukraine) and Sukhamuni (Belgium) who recently depicted on Auroville's local Intranet some moments of their plight in response to some grumbling users..


First - meeting over lunch with Ulli to make sure that we all agreed on the way of doing things...


we looked @ the problem...


problem looked messy....


Bobby was puzzled...


linuxconf...? startx...? back up...?


midnight oil


"NO!!! I told you ... 
not the blue one ... 
but the white one ... !!!!!"


who said computer work was not *$!*@* sweaty...?


... and dirty?


snake charmed modem cables...


we had to get close and personal... with the modems and phone lines...


the man or the machine? who wins... ?
the server? the bobby... ?


4.30 a.m. on Sunday 21st of April
... IT WORKS ...!!!


when AV was peacefully sleeping, the Auronet crew was WIDE awake... "Auronet never sleeps"...who...said that..!????

 

PS
... - i.e. all that we REALLY mean, but won't write...
