the server is back up since before a few minutes before 13:00 MET.
It's now running 1.6.
Unfortunably the SIMMS Tod sent me are not compatible with the motherboard,
so it's still with 256MB only. Anyway I bumped the size of the swap partition,
and the size of the MFS used by anoncvs, so it should not die as it did

Please let me know if you encouter any problems.
