This matches what Thomas Jarosch suggested elsewhere in this thread,
and is fine with me. I'll wait for the DNS update to happen before I
add the link to Freshmeat.

Works for me.

I am out of time to play with this. I proposed my site as a demo
because doing so had ~0 cost for me (it was already online anyway). Note
that I am not insisting on my setup being used as a demo. If anybody has
something better, let's use it.

He he, I understand ;) That's always the same story... I've been
telling everyone around me that I was about to replace my UPS, nobody
provided any suggestion about what I should buy or not, and when I
finally announced that I went for an APC model, several people told me
that they had better experience with other brands. Sigh. Next time I
think I'll just claim I have bought the hardware _before_ I actually
do, so that people tell me what they think about it ;)

That being said, for what I'm doing, this particular APC model is
working good enough for me, so I'm happy with what I have.
